HydroDash is a new massive Inflatable Water Park at Palawan Beach, Sentosa & it's Super Fun!

If your kids love splashing good fun, then they will go crazy at HydroDash, Singapore’s very first floating aqua park at Sentosa!


Floating in the sea just off Palawan Beach, HydroDash is an inflatable playground on water where kids and adults can climb, slide, leap and bounce to their hearts' content... if they can keep their balance!


And once the monkies knew we would be paying HydroDash a visit, they were so looking forward to it. (Actually, me too)


To be honest, I was half-expecting the water obstacle course to be pretty small because after having experienced a few similar water parks in other countries, I realised that everything got a little bit boring after 30 minutes.


Well, not so for HydroDash.



The entire water course is HUGE, and it is made up of four zones with varying difficulty.



Suitable for kids aged 5 and up, HydroDash has a special zone (Level 1) dedicated for kids aged between 5 and 8 years old.



Here, the water obstacles are less challenging and are easier for the younger kids to clear. However, do note that all kids have to be accompanied by an adult at all times in this zone.



As for kids above 9 years old as well as adults, they are free to take on any challenges in the Levels 2, 3 and 4 zones.



Which was what we did.





We started out at Levels 2 and 3 first, where the obstacles consisted of slopes, mini towers and platforms with openings that we had to leap across.


Was it challenging?


Well, let me put it this way: you know how we often laugh at the Ninja Warrior and Wipeout contestants for falling or failing to clear an obstacle? I WILL NEVER LAUGH AT THEM AGAIN. Because it definitely NOT as easy as it looks!!! 😅


But funnily enough for the kids, they were relishing it!





Then it was time to tackle the Level 4 inflatable obstacles.


Consisting of much (x5) steeper slopes and more advanced obstacles, this area the monkies' clear fave for sure.



There are slopes to slide, walls to climb, gaps to jump over and even a sloping walkway to get to the other side - and everything is made even more challenging by the slippery floor!


One of the obstacles included this monkey swing bar, where you had to hold on to the bar and swing yourself across.


Definitely not as easy as it sounds. LOL.


A jump tower can be found at each extreme end of the water park, where one can leap off and enjoy a plunge into the sea. Pity that the monkies were not able to to try it as the sea level was not high enough when we were there. But at least there was the tall slide that they managed to go on... and that was adrenaline-inducing enough!


One of another fave obstacles of the monkies was this series of parallel inflatable tubes where one had run across using momentum.
 

I tried but failed miserably and ended up plonking into the sea.

Ash particularly loved this obstacle and he cleared it by his second try!




So what happens when you fall into the sea? How do you get back up?

Fret not, because scattered throughout the water obstacle course, there are plenty of yellow areas marked with an arrow (below) which has a step below. Just use the step and pull yourself back up onto the floating platforms.


If you still can't pull yourself up, don't panic. There are lifeguards on duty and they are positioned at all points of the entire course. So just give a shout, and they will come over to give you a hand.


Each play session is valid for two hours and you have to pre-book your slot online beforehand due to crowd control measures. And trust me when I say that two hours are MORE than enough because it can get extremely tiring... though my kids will be to differ. 😁


All in all, HydroDash is a great family-friendly place to bring the kids if you are looking for an extremely fun day out.

Because it sure cannot get more fun than balancing on floating platforms while clearing steep slopes and obstacles as one navigates the slippery obstacle course!
