The FREE Inflatable Playground at Sentosa returns this March School Holidays + 8 other Mega Fun Activities for Families!


Last year's FunFest at Sentosa must have been ultra-fun for everyone because instead of June, Sentosa is bringing it back earlier during the March School Holidays!

And there is absolutely NO excuse for you not to head down... because just how cute are these We Bare Bears installations???

Happening from 10 to 18 March 2018, FunFest promises to have loads of fuN fUN FUN with the kids! Be it an attraction, dining by the beach or enjoying a slew of free activities, there is something for everyone at Sentosa!

Here are 9 reasons why Sentosa is the place to be this March School Holidays:

FREE Entry to Sentosa

Just for 10 to 18 March 2018, all Singaporeans, Permanent Residents and local residents enjoy complimentary island admission via the Sentosa Express or drive-in!

The bulk of the fun happens right on Palawan Beach, where an outdoor playground of larger-than-life inflatable and Instagram-worthy We Bare Bears inflatable installations await.

But if it's up to the kids, chances are they will zoom straight to the following FREE 11 inflatables:

Aquaplane NEW!

The 50-metre long Aquaplane is the centerpiece of FunFest 2018!

Expect plenty of joyful screams while sliding down and through multiple soaking sprinklers!

Bumpy Bouncer NEW!

There are shower areas for kids and adults to wash off the foam too.

I guarantee you that kids (and adults too!) will have endless fun and excitement at this mega inflatable playground. Oh, and do REMEMBER to bring your swimwear as the inflatables are constantly sprayed with water.

Also, do check out Cartoon Network's three brother bears - Grizz, Panda and Ice Bear around FunFest!

Be awed by over 300 We Bare Bear inflatable and resolve to take picture with every bear you can find, especially the mega 3 layers Bearstack, measuring 50 feet tall!

If you haven't been to the Fort Silosa Skywalk, you really should because it is so child-friendly and easy to complete. It is even stroller-friendly too!

The Fort Siloso Skywalk is an 11-storey elevated bridge which leads visitors on a trail above the canopy treetops en route to Fort Siloso. Apart from the aerial views of the western part of Sentosa, the scenic trek among the treetops may just offer eagle-eyed visitors to chance upon some wildlife, such as squirrels and pigeons!

Discover Nature at Sentosa Nature Discovery
Date: Daily
Time:  9am - 5pm
Venue: Imbiah lookout
Admission: FREE

Embark on a hands-on journey of discovery and hone your skills as a 'detective'. At Sentosa Nature Discovery, nature and fun go hand-in-hand!

WOW! That really sounds like plenty of activities to cover on Sentosa in one day so why not rent a Segway Fun Ride to experience the island instead?

Hop on the Segway Personal Transporter (PT) for an introductory riding experience along Siloso Beach. For beginners like the monkies, trainers were on hand to assist them and in a matter of minutes they were able to master the mobility device!

They were then lead by the instructor on a 800-metre route for some riding action!

Definitely an exciting experience & effortless way to see Sentosa! The minimum height requirement is 105cm and prices start from $17 for one round. Visit HERE for more information.

We felt hungry after all of the activities so there was no better place than to head to Coastes Beach Bar on Siloso Beach to satisfy our growing appetite!

Coastes' menu offer generous servings of mouthwatering burgers, pizzas, pastas and delicious fresh seafood... frankly, it was quite the task trying to make up our minds.

Food was delicious, especially the Chicken Wings - you just got to order that if you are dining there! On top of it all, Coastes exudes a rustic charm and casual, laid-back beach vibe where the sunbeds and deck chairs flow right to the water's edge. Perfect for kids who will be able to play by the beach while parents chill and relax with an ice cold beer.

I could sit here all day, if the monkies would let me.

No need to think so much... one week of school holidays isn't exactly that long so there is no time to procrastinate! For a day - or even DAYS - of fun this school break, Sentosa will be your best bet to recharge your kids' energy.
