Rainforest Kidzworld (in the Singapore Zoo)

I read about the Rainforest Kidzworld on blogs, but this is our very FIRST visit to this special attraction in the Singapore Zoo.

We brought Little Edison and my parents-in-law to visit the Singapore Zoo during the school holidays. It has been more than two years since our last visit.

There is just one word to describe the Rainforest Kidzworld – heaps of FUN! Now, I know why it’s such a hit among children.

As an introduction, Rainforest Kidzworld is a water play area, themed like a wet animal wonderland, in the Singapore Zoo. It’s opened from 9am to 5:30pm. Admission is free with normal zoo admission of S$20.00 per adult and S$13.00 per child of age 3-12 years old.

Little Edison had great fun with the water slides. He was running happily when the bell rang “Ting! Ting! Ting!” He didn’t know what it was. I ran to him quickly to alert him but I was too late. The massive bucket at the top tipped over and the water splashed everywhere. He totally freaked out.

So Mommies, if you’re new to this place, please inform your little ones about this water bucket feature. I find it a little too over-whelming for young children. The rest of the water play area, including the slides, is generally quite safe.

There is a shower facility for adults and children next to the water play area. Hot and cold water cooler can be found in the diaper-changing room too. For a quick bite, head on to the KFC restaurant next to the water play area. This place is simply amazing. And clean too.

After playing in the water for almost an hour, we went for a shower. Refreshed and clean as we continued our visit to the next part of Rainforest Kidzworld. There are ponies, falabellas, goats, bunnies and guinea pigs too!

It was a wonderful day. The good news is we’ll be planning another trip to the Singapore Zoo this month. Little Edison is sure thrilled to hear that.

Have you been to the Rainforest Kidzworld lately? Do you like the place? I love to hear from you too.

    I’ll be heading there next week, if schedule permits!

    By the way, not sure if you stay near Serangoon but Nex Mall has a playground at the roof top pretty similar to this. And it’s free to boot.

      Hi Daphne,
      Great! Most likely, my next visit will be in mid July. My boy can’t wait to go there again. I heard about the playground at roof top at NEX shopping mall. My in-law’s house is near to NEX and my FIL often bring my boy there.
