This September, embrace and indulge in the perfect combination of the sun, sand and sea at Sentosa’s inaugural mega beach festival. Whether you’re looking for hours of unadulterated fun, a chill-out day at the beach and a cool respite from the heat, the Sentosa FunFest has you covered, with giant inflatable slides, a Bungee Run and bubbling foam pools.
Get doused in fun at the nine-day beach festival, held from 5 to 13 September at the island’s hottest beach destination, Siloso Beach. Its highlight is a Triple Slide Inflatable that stands at 12 metres, roughly the height of a four-storey HDB flat. The only triple slide to have ever reached Singapore, the towering structure promises an exhilarating experience as you glide down it alongside two other thrill-seekers. Then get a kick out of a slippery horizontal slide, Sentosa’s version of the bobsleigh, before kicking back in a foam pool for adults.
Adrenaline junkies and older kids can indulge in hours of fun at Sway and Swing stations, where they risk plunging into the water if they lose their grip. Then they can take a test of speed and stamina at the Bungee Run by racing against a rival to run the furthest distance before being catapulted back to the start point by a bungee cord. These attractions are suitable for those aged eight and above.
Parents can also be ensured that their young ones will be kept entertained throughout. Children aged seven and below can navigate through an inflatable maze, slip down a fun water slide, bounce around in a ball pool and take a dip in child-friendly foam pool. Various cooling zones and areas filled with mega beach balls and inflatable mega candies also promise small pockets of fun in the sun throughout the day.
After an adrenaline-pumping day, enjoy some laidback time at the white sandy beach with beach grub, cold beer and great music under beach umbrellas. If you’re in the mood for even more excitement, wander over to the DJ spin, available on both weekends. There you can request for your favourite song – dedicate it to a loved one! Finally, grab candid shots with roving mascots and at quirky photopoints for an unforgettable Instagram moment.
“As Singapore’s ‘State of Fun’, Sentosa takes fun very seriously. Even though it’s summer all year round in Singapore, we want to give Singaporeans of all ages a special occasion to come and have fun at a beach festival on Singapore’s ultimate playground. We are blessed with sunshine all year round and this is our opportunity to take advantage of the great beaches at Sentosa. We believe the festival will inject some good, wholesome fun into the lives of the young and young at heart, and serve as a great occasion to spend time with family and friends at the beach during the September school holiday,” said Agatha Yap, Director of Sales and Marketing at Sentosa Leisure Management.
