Adventure Cove Waterpark @ Resorts World, Sentosa

Adventure Cove Waterpark is one of the attractions at Marine Life Park which is a part of Resorts World Sentosa and sharing the grounds with the S.E.A. Aquarium.

Since I love the water, I've been to a lot of water parks and Sunway Lagoon in Malaysia is one of my favorites. But even my Wild Wild Wet  experience is better than this place. The size is quite a disappointment, everything was cramped into a small space and the crowd is just too much so it takes forever to take any ride. 

Actually when I was planning for the trip I already have the things in mind I want to experience with my husband specially the Rainbow Reef, unfortunately due to the long queue and the weather (once it starts to rain, everyone will be asked to get out of the water for safety reasons), we don't want to waste our time waiting in line so we just toured the area, and stayed longer at Bluewater Bay and the Adventure River. Don't even get me started on the super long queues even in the changing rooms and shortage of benches to sit and relax! We were able to use the benches only after everyone was asked to prepare to leave because it started to rain and the queue in the shower room/changing room is too long, haist! We waited for everyone to finish and took our time lounging by the pool, we deserve it! 

Let me share some of the attractions this Waterpark has to offer:
Seahorse Hideaway - a shallow wading pool for kids

Big Bucket Treehouse for kids... and kids at heart.. hehe
Rainbow Reef
I really felt bad that we were not able to try this.  This is the best area for most of the reviews, its a snorkelling activity, a chance to swim with around 20,000 population of tropical fishes and over 100 species of marine life living among the coral reefs. I still hope I can try this with hubby next time.

Bluewater Bay
At last a place where there is no need to queue! The pool is only 1.6M at its deepest but waves can go up to 2 meters high. Even this place is quite small as compared to Wild Wild Wet but still good that they were able to squeeze one  here.  Use a float to enjoy the wave!

Dueling Racer
You can race with your friend here on a duelling high-speed plunge.  Not new for me however, they have this one too at Sunway Lagoon and way better than this one.

Splashworks is an activity centre for good swimmers.. of which we are not! You'll find here a lot obstacle courses and a diving board. Water depth is 4 meters, so off we go.. but we watched them try the activities for a while.

they only have 1 restaurant inside the park, good thing we ate lunch before we went inside,

And the only place we really enjoyed is the Adventure River, it is a 620 meters long of adventure and fun! It will take you around 20 minutes to complete 1 loop, and we ended up doing it again and again. The water here is only 0.9 meters deep so you can walk around if you are tired of the tube provided. We just laze on and off a tube and made fun of each other the whole afternoon! What a relaxing ride! 

Let me share some of our photos:

The Grotto
Here's an area of the Adventure River that we adore so much! Who needs to pay $38 extra for Ray Bay experience? You can have a close encounter with the rays here also at no extra cost!

Don't forget to bring a small waterproof pouch for your camera!

Floats are free, but the locker is quite expensive for $20 (big ones) and security is their top priority so they have lifeguards everywhere. You have to pay extra to enjoy some  areas like The Ray Bay (up-close encounter with dozens of rays for $38);  Dolphin Island (up-close encounter with dolphins, rate starts at $68 for just "observing", dolphin discovery is at $198,) the SEA Trek Adventure ( your chance to stroll amongst colourful marine life for $238) and  Shark Encounter for $38.   Entrance fee at Adventure Cove is $38, I got ours for $50 per pax including SEA Aquarium so check for discounts and promos before you book! 

Not a bad day after all, thanks to the Adventure River and of course to my favourite companion.. my hubby!
