If there is one thing that never fails to elicit squeals of laughter from the kiddos, it has got to be water play. Add in a dash of water slide fun into the mix, and that laughter will be multiplied tenfold! Nothing beats sliding down a water slide into a pool of water - especially in a warm climate like Singapore's.... even better if the water slides come in the form of inflatables!
This 2016, THREE such inflatable water slides will be gracing our shores with the first 2 taking places during the upcoming June School Holidays. And all of them has its own appeal: One's the BOUNCIEST, one's the TALLEST while the final one's the LONGEST.
But one thing is similar though - they are only set up temporarily. So grab everyone in the family and head down to these inflatable water slides for the SLIDE OF YOUR LIFE!

DBS Marina Regatta 2016
Featuring the region’s top dragon boating teams racing beneath an iconic skyline, the Promontory at the Marina Bay will also be transformed into a pop-up urban beach over two weekends – 28 & 29 May; 4 & 5 June – and welcome the largest collective of emerging home-grown talent in Singapore.
Open from 11am to 8pm on both weekends, the slide stands at a prominent 16m with slides sloping at about 45 degrees. Tackle the slide for a good cause – at S$10 for five rides – all proceeds raised will go to SPD, a non-profit organisation that helps people with disabilities develop their potential to the fullest so that they can be self-reliant and independent. To ride the slide, participants must be at least 110cm tall and a minimum of five years old.
The beach also comes with a packed programme of non-stop activities for families and urbanites alike. Board sports enthusiasts can try their hand at stand-up paddling and yoga sessions, while kids can explore the kayaking, zorbing, and obstacle courses.

Slide The City 2016
Sometime and somewhere in Singapore during the 4th quarter this year, a section here will be transformed into a water park consisting of the longest slide ever, thanks to Slide The City.
From the looks of the photo above, I'm guessing Marina Bay.
But what exactly is Slide The City? THIS.
Families are invited to coast down a 1,000 feet (slightly over 300m) long - the equivalent of three city blocks - slide on inner tubes. Make no mistake, it will be the LONGEST water slide in town! And judging from the video below, it is going to be oh-so-fun!
Along with the one-of-a-kind slide, the event includes a party with food, music, local vendors and street entertainers.
Date: 4th Quarter 2016Time, Venue & Price: To be confirmed
UPDATE: Register your Slide The City category starting from 8th June 2016 at www.heroes.com.sg
So... which one are you looking forward to most? :)
