Do you know that…….
And do you also know that I found those words in………………….the bathroom??? Yes, this cute and funny poster was found in one of the Port of The Lost Wonder (POLW) bathroom. I liked the bathrooms so much because they were clean of course, and the most important thing was…….they had hot and cold shower! It was very nice to wash ourselves with warm water after ” playing under the sun in the cold water for 5 hours. Lil boy and I happily spent longer time in the bathroom to wash all the sand that covered our skin.
POLW is a water theme park located in Palawan Beach Sentosa. POLW just celebrated it’s first anniversary recently. It is not as big as Wild Wild Wet, but it has the same fun level for kids……and maybe for parents too…….I still prefer Wild Wild Wet because it still has pools (although shallow) for us to dip ourselves and enjoy the calm wave. Lil boy on the other hand, could not choose which is better….he likes both of them equally. To him, all pools and water theme parks are all have the same fun level and make him wants to come back again and again.
I think POLW is purely for children. All the activities, pools, and water plays are design specially for children. But do not worry cos parents can still join in the fun too. Unlike other pools which has many restrictions, this theme park is wonderfully designed for children and not forgetting the adults that accompany the kids. So adults can have fun too in this way:
- Adults are allowed to slide in all the slides in the theme park (from big to small…….any slides you want). Public pools never allow adults to slide on the children’s slides
- Adult can slide together with the child. Yes, it is important to me. It is irritating when the lifeguard prohibits you from sliding together with your child. What is wrong with that? To me, it is not dangerous at all. So if water theme parks life guards allow us to do that, why can’t public pools life guards do the same??? Oh well, it will remain a mystery to me……….
The one proof that strengthen my writing about this theme park is especially designed for kids is……………only kids need to pay! Yay for that! So when we came with one kid and three adults, only my son had to pay $15. The others entered for free. If you come on weekday, your child only need to pay $8, which I consider very cheap for whole day playing.
What makes it different from other water theme parks? Claiming itself as Singapore’s First Kids’ Club by The Beach (how cool is that?), this place’s main attraction comes through a big Pirate Ship with slides, big water bucket, shallow pool, and surrounding by water guns and water fountains. The floor made from some kind of rubber, so it’s not slippery at all and safe enough for the young explorers to enjoy a day full of fun and adventures.
Do you see that parents or adults are actually everywhere? Yes, adults are having so much fun too here. They can have the same fun adventures as their children. Or if you’re afraid of the hot sun, you can always choose to lay down under the tree on the picnic deck or full your tummy at the Port Belly Restaurant. I’ll tell about those two things later, but first…..let’s EXPLORE AND PLAY!!!
Try these three different kind of slides:
Shoot with the water guns:
Or simply just get wet everywhere……
When we felt tired after playing for hours, the best thing to do is to sit on the picnic deck and had a wonderful lunch together
If you do not bring your own food, there is a restaurant inside called Port Belly which mainly sells Western food such as salad, pizza, fries, etc.
Children and parents can also join in the fun activities and collecting stamps in their passport books. To be able to join in the activities, you must pay using POLW’s currency, which is curios or curio coins. We got 100 curios when we bought the entrance ticket, and it can be purchased again in the souvenir shop. We joined in one of the activities which was scavenger hunt and paid 30 curios.
We played for 5 hours and it was so much fun for us. For more information about POLW, please visit their website at http://www.polw.com.sg
Now it was time to go home…………Good bye POLW and hope to come back again.
