An indoor water playground at Punggol Safra, the newly opened place has a main play area that has tall slides and a huge water bucket that will splash water at regular intervals. The playground goes with an “Enchanted Deep Sea” theme that explains its blue and green colour scheme. Parents are encouraged to go on the slide with their children so that the child’s safety is ensured and they can also bond with their children by playing with them. There is also a waddling area for younger children to play in, as the main water play area is more appropriate for those ages 6 and above.
