Port of Lost Wonder, Sentosa

Finally, we made it to the latest themed attraction in Sentosa – Port of Lost Wonder. I can’t resist bringing our boy there after reading so many reviews from other parent bloggers. All I got to say is – this is really a place where everyone can share so much fun together!

The nearest car park is Beach Car Park, which is just a short walk from this kids’ club. The car park rates are relatively cheap too, $3 for first 4 hours and $1 per hour thereafter, followed by per entry charge after 5pm.

Curio coins and our Port Pass

The main attraction here is the Pirate Ship, the main water play area, where kids can splash, climb, run and slide all day long! There is a giant bucket that will tip over every 5 minutes or so, with droplets of water gushing down.

This is Little Edison standing in front of the Pirate Ship, just when the giant bucket started to tipped over!

Next to the Pirate Ship, there is a slightly “milder” water play area. Perfect for toddlers and young children. It’s our boy’s favorite too. He took some time to “warm-up” here before he got the courage to explore the Pirate Ship.

Water Play Area, with water guns etc

When I brought Little Edison to the water playground in Rainforest Kidzworld the first time, I wasn’t prepared to get wet. Then, I realized that it is mission impossible to remain dry as he is still too young to venture on his own. So, I had to get in and watched him.

No matter how hard I try to avoid getting wet, in the end, I was all drenched after a bucket of water splashed on me. And some boys made me their water-gun shooting target after that. 🙁

This time, I’m fully prepared with my swimming costume and sun block! I went all the way out with Little Edison to explore the Pirate Ship and had lots of fun! It’s worth it!

There is an eatery here – Port Belly, that serves comfort food such as grilled sandwiches, piping-hot pastas and pizzas, as well as savory soups and desserts. Visitors can choose to dine in or have a picnic outdoors at The Deck.

Have a break, I'm so hungry!

I read about the fun bubble party here, but unfortunately, it was not opened on weekdays (so we missed it!). The other attractions here include Curiosity Island, Tree of Wonder, Pots and Planks, Teach us Wild, PlayChute and Play Den. We didn’t have time to explore these attractions as our boy spent the entire afternoon in the water play area until it closed at 6pm.

After 6pm, this place automatically turned into a wonderful port for dining and relaxation. I managed to snap a few pictures of this place after the water play area closed and most of the visitors left.

    Hi,Emily! I just happened to visit your blog when I was looking up some information on Port of Lost Wonder. I’m a mom of 9years old and from Japan. My husband is a Singaporean.

    Not only did I find useful information in here, but also really enjoyed reading the rest of your blogs! Your son, Edison is just so lovely:) I liked the style of your writing, it reflects your nice personality (although I do not know you in person!).

      Hi Veena,
      I would say that 20 months might be too young for the water play at POLW. Anyway, you can check out the other activities there besides the water play. They might have other gentle activities that is suitable for your 20 months old.
