Adventure Cove Water Theme Park - Sentosa

Time flies and say HELLO to weekends again!! =D

Was having a fun time out at Adventure Cove Water Theme Park located at Sentosa, Singapore last week. And yes, finally after so so long that i get to swim in the water again! Very excited and anticipating for this day to come.. furthermore, what's summer without a date with the water, sand and Sun yea?! Sis was our guide that day, bringing us here and there.. Really thankful to her for arranging all these!~
It was a Saturday and is expected to be crowded.. but i just didn't expect that it was so crowded. The park starts operating at 10am (daily 10am - 6pm), we can already see a lot of people starts queuing for tickets and entering the parks. I really like the whole design and layout of the park, a lot of effort was put into craving, a lot of details can be seen.
 For a price of $29 on non-peak period and $33 on peak period, i think its worth spending on because there are so much to see and to play with, and i believe most people actually spend 1 whole day inside the park itself. The place was surprisingly huge housing a total of 6 water slides, a toddle water area, a wave pool, 3 sections of obstacle challenge (i still can't believe i actually did jump off from a high level into a deep 4m pool! it does takes a lot of courage), one of the world's longest lazy river of 620-metre (2,030 ft) long, and a chance to snorkel over colourful rainbow reef with pretty tropical fishes (lots of them)! There were also a small artificial man-made beach with soft white sand (that was too cute la! HAHA!) and a lot more, some attractions were not even open to public yet).

The wave pool.. looking calm now but when you hear the siren, grab your life jackie because the tsunami that can goes up to about 2.0m high is coming! I started off at the wave pool and god, we had so much laughters during the wave, doing silly reactions and faces in the water. Do be careful even when you can swim because the tidal wave is really strong and fast, once you lost track of the momentum of the wave.. it will be difficult to catch another breathe..
 Life jackie comes in different sizes, the baby blue for the little kids.. super adorable!
and notice that there were nice little huts in the background? Those are Cabanas and are available for rent, so families or couples can relax in it and enjoy the atmosphere. There are service crew station outside too so you dont have to worry leaving the hut empty for a little while and come back in later.
 Here's a closer look;
Above pic is the kids play-land, we did went in and explore abit, there were water sprays and buckets that can fill up to the brim with water from the top gigantic bucket for you to splash water on somebody without them realising it. Bf say i am such a bad person when he saw me pouring the bucket full of water down onto some young children, but i can't help it, laughing seeing how shock their face were. LoL!

And below is one of the shot of the lazy river, passing by the stingray aqurarium. This is probably one of the best lazy river i've experience so far.. because you get to see marine life so up-close like rays, fishes, and even dolphins (in the near future as the dolphins section is not open for public viewing yet)! Amazing, isn't it?
And below is the dolphins habitat. It wasn't open for public viewing yet so this is the best shot i can get from a far, high view. I guess our timing was right, they were having training when we watch them, so many of them i couldn't get an exact count.. like about 14 to 18 of them in the water!

We settled our lunch at the Bay Restuarant, here's the ordering counter. Their food were pretty much alike the one at The Maritime Experiential Museum. Everything tasted quite okay except for their pasta which was rather hard to chew on..

Pardon me for the limited pictures put up.. as i didn't had my camera with me.. still waiting for some of the pictures taken in the water from one of our friend, for she's the only one with the waterproof camera. :)
