I had a really fantastic time with my friends and their family last Sunday at Wild Wild Wet in Downtown East! I was invited by Sample Store to check out The Woosh, Singapore’s Longest Inflatable Freestyle Water Slide, and to be honest I wasn’t interested on going at first because who wants to go to water parks at my age? Only kids love to go to water parks usually.
Luckily, I remembered that I do know a kid who loves the water – Bryce, the son of my friends Elma and Brian. So I invited them to go with me.
I am so glad I decided to go because Bryce and all of us ended up having so much fun. As the saying goes: “Every happy memory created for a child is another treasure of a lifetime.” Thank you, Sample Store and Wild Wild Wet, for the opportunity! 😊
It was my first time to set foot in Wild Wild Wet, and I was impressed by how huge the place was and at the number of rides in it.The first thing we did was rent a locker to stash our things in. All our stuff fit into a medium sized one. Here’s a tip – the medium sized lockers can only be opened from the same automated machine where you rented it from originally, so don’t rent it from the obvious ones at the front, which always have long queues. Go to the back of the lockers, where there are more machines with lesser people. That way you can reopen your locker faster.
After we peeled off our other clothes and got down to our swimwear, we closed the locker and headed towards the star of the day – The Woosh, Singapore’s Longest Inflatable Freestyle Water Slide.
Look at it – it’s soooo long! 50 metres!
Brian and Bryce went first, then Bryce wanted to go again because he enjoyed it so much, so for his second time, Elma and I went with him. But while Bryce was super duper excited to get on it, Elma and I were a bit nervous because we both don’t like scary rides and heights. 😅
This actually wasn’t that scary, though, because it was made of inflatable material, so it was soft and bouncy.
After that, we decided to check out what the rest of the place had to offer. You can check out our video below!
There were so many rides, even gigantic scary ones for adults, but because like I already mentioned, I am a scaredy cat when it comes to rides, I was content to give them a hard pass. I would have given the kiddie slides a pass, too, if not for Bryce, who insisted, “Tita, I want you to go down the pink slide with me.”
Elma and I both thought this was very cute because a few months ago, he was so shy around me that he hid behind her back and would not even talk to me. 😂 But after I gave him a tiny Thor toy for Christmas, he remembered me and referred to me as his friend when he saw my pic on Facebook.
So up the slide we went. There were stairs to reach the top of the slides, by the way, but Bryce insisted that we walk up the harder route using ropes. Kids think very differently from adults. 😄
Then down we went!
On this day, I realized something – hanging out with kids is great because you become like a kid again! Thank you, Bryce!
Near these slides, there was a giant pail of water that made a sound for you to get ready when it was almost full and about to be overturned, so you could enjoy being under a “waterfall.”
We also tried going on the “Shiok River” which was a really long pool that looped around all the slides. You could swim in it or paddle around on floats like this pretty unicorn in the below pic or a flamingo one if you rent one, but if you don’t want to, you could just use free normal lifesavers.
It was at the Shiok River when Brian had a memorable moment – he lost his go pro. 😱 We tried looking for it in the water, but we couldn’t find it. He then went to the Lost and Found office and tada! It was there! It’s so great that Wild Wild Wet is that safe and secure! 😊
Overall, I’d say that Wild Wild Wet is a recommended place for families with kids, because they would really enjoy themselves there! If you don’t believe me, ask Bryce. 😁 The facilities are very good. They have clean showers and toilets and you can rent or buy everything that you could possibly need, including lunch – they also have a cafe inside, where we had some spaghetti, chicken, and ice cream. 😋
One other great thing about Wild Wild Wet is its location – it’s right beside Downtown East, which is a mall that not only has a lot of food and shops, but also has D’Resort, eXplorerkid, E!Hub, and Orchid Bowl. So you could do a lot of things on the same day if you want!
One last thing – on that day, we were supposed to dress identical so we could set the Singapore book of records for most number of people in pairs dressed identically.We were prepared outfit-wise, but unfortunately we were a bit late to the event. We’re double sorry! 😅 But they still set the record without us, though! So congrats to everyone! 😄
But guess what, you can still dress in pairs, not just in Wild Wild Wet, but anywhere! Even though you will not be in a record, you could win something else – exciting prizes! So twin and win until the 31st of July!
