I am so in love with this place! And my kids too!
Spanning 24,000 square feet, Splash @ Kidz Amaze is the new way to have water play theme parks in Singapore! In hot and humid Singapore, the best way to have water play is under shelter – not that I don’t like the sun; it’s just easier not to have the glaring and scorching sun in your eyes and face. We tried water playgrounds in the evening to night hours, but it normally gets a little chilly with gusts of wind.
That’s that main reason why I like Splash @ Kidz Amaze located at Punggol SAFRA:
1) Sheltered Indoor Water Playground.
The very first indoor water playground in Singapore. You can play here in rain and shine condition without harsh natural elements. Having said that, it is not devoid of natural sunlight. Parts of the architecture allows sunlight to peek through. This place is themed the “Enchanted Deep Sea”, so you will see many “sea creatures” dotting the playground.

And here are 4 other reasons why you should check this place out at least once:
2) Shallow waters
At just 0.3M deep waters, it is designed for toddlers from 18 months to tweens of 13 years old. For those who are afraid of deep waters, this builds water confidence as most children can waddle through the waters without worries of the water levels reaching uncomfortable zones.
Both my sons cannot swim yet. In particular Xi En has some water phobia since young and he never quite enjoyed water playgrounds. I was surprised that he took to this place very well and the key reason is because he can comfortably waddle through the shallow waters.
There are safety crews in bright yellow T-shirts around the whole water playground.
The middle zone of the single volume toddlers play area is also equipped with heating elements which can keep the water warm as night falls.
3) Different play zones
Older children tend to be more boisterous when they play. I am glad there are “quiet” areas at the sides and the toddlers-suited zone for the really young ones. For some reasons, Eizac isn’t liking water playgrounds lately. He is good just to sit out at the side-lines and watch the rest play.
There is a single volume area for the 18 to 36 months toddlers and a triple volume area for 6 years and above (including adults!) – which is great as it caters to different age groups.
Xi En tried out the middle green slide. As he can’t swim, he still preferred that one of us is with him. This is a broad slide which most children will go and up umpteen times; the busiest slide.
There are 2 other taller slides (with enclosed spiralling tunnels) which the older ones will be excited over. I have yet to try them but accordingly to the Daddy and Xi En who gamely took to the 2nd highest slide, they are dark and “a little scary” but very FUN! hahaa.. that’s the thrill I supposed.

There is also an interactive projector which sends ripples across the projected images with motions. This will be fun for the younger ones.
4) Hot Water in the Bathroom!
There are just 2 toilets/bathrooms – male and female. But they are spacious and clean. The lockers are located within the toilets so it’s convenient to pick items up when you need them during showers.
I like the small cubicles for the children and the dual top/bottom closure swing doors if you need to supervise them. Most importantly there is warm water for showering and liquid soap is provided too. How convenient.
5) Party Rooms
There are 3 different themed party rooms located within Splash @ Kidz Amaze – Pirate’s Cave, Penguin’s Paradise and Under The Sea. They are at the perimeter of the toddlers splash zone. There are plenty of seats around and bright coloured wall papers. This is a different type of party venue which allows guest to zip in and out at Splash and rest/eat at the party rooms. If you are looking for a party venue, prices start from $430 for 3 hours usage of party room with entry to Splash, without food catering. More details here.
However, note that the aircon can get really chilly when your kids just stepped out of the pool. Get ready with towels or swim robes to avoid a chill. All the rooms have individual controlled AC remote controls but it takes a while for the room to warm up.
Tips and notes to enjoy this place
1) Go during off peak hours (if possible). First you save on cheaper entrance fee. Second, it is less crowded. Note that there is a maximum capacity of 400 per play hours. Play hours are in blocks of 4 hours. 10am to 2pm; 2pm to 6pm; 5pm to 9pm. However, these are subject to changes from time to time. To avoid disappointment, it is best to arrive early to book a time slot.
I will recommend going at 5pm to 9pm as that is the time from sunset to dark. The lightings here will change at night and there might even be some nice music to add to the mystical hour. Or early in the morning to avoid the crowd.
2) No food are allowed beyond the party rooms. In other words, eat before coming and play your fullest before looking for food outside. No re-entry is allowed.
3) There are limited benches around the play area. So try to bring less items and use water-proof bags and have someone watch your over if you don’t intend to place your stuff in the lockers.
4) Wear goggles. If you having children who don’t like water in their eyes, try giving them goggles. For Xi En, it worked well so he didn’t need to keep brushing away water from his eyes – which he dislikes.
5) Children are required to wear swim gears. For adults, Dri-Fit clothing are acceptable. I find it more comfortable wearing a tank top/Dri-Fit over my swim wear.
