Playgrounds bring out the child in me with slides and swings, but an inflatable playground water sports park takes the fun to the next level. At SeaForest Adventure, there’s a basic entry fee for adults (35,000 Rp, ~S$3.50) and children (25,000 Rp, ~S$2.50), plus a top up for each activity based on duration.
We bought tickets to Aqua Adventure Track for 60 min (120 000 Rp, ~S$12). There were lockers and clean toilets with shower stalls beside the counter. I quickly changed, slapped on sunblock, and went out to the beach to grab a life vest.
The entire park is as big as a basketball court and included swings, wall climbing, monkey bars, big slides, free falling, and even a three-metre wide trampoline. I was eager to run to the trampoline in the centre but the slippery playground had us shrieking in laughter whenever we fell.
There were assistants who watched over us and helped us back up each time, so although I can’t swim, I wasn’t super scared. This playground kept us busy all afternoon so you’ll want to sink into the beanbags on deck for a break now and then. There’s a Floating Snack Bar in the middle of the park and a tent at the shore with a small stall for refreshments.
PS you can bring your own bottles of water to quench your thirst. It’s much cheaper and there weren’t any restrictions when we visited.
