Beat the heat with a splash! What better way to holiday in the summer than with a waterpark break? Choose from these wet and wild waterparks around Asia for a cool family vacation.
1. Adventure Cove, Singapore
Can’t get out for a longish holiday? Don’t let the kids miss out on summer fun – head to Sentosa Island and its Adventure Cove. Slides, races, and tube rides with twists and turns at high speeds that all end in a big splash! That’s Adventure Cove for you. This is not all; the park even has Southeast Asia’s first ride with a hydro-magnetic coaster.
Try out the new attraction, a wet maze that you have to find your way out of. Adventure Cove makes it a holiday from heaven for the little ones with its Adventure River and Big Bucket Treehouse. You can also get up close and personal with rays and fish at the Ray Bay and Rainbow Reef.
Saving on tickets: Mastercard users can enjoy a S$5 meal voucher (with minimum S$20 spend) if they buy an Adventure Cove Waterpark’ Adult one-day pass.

2. Waterbom Bali, Indonesia
Waterbom Bali is all thrills, spills, twists, and splashes. With rides that you can slide down furiously, race through, and splash around in, it is quite a dizzying experience. Multiple slides, water cannons, pull ropes, a lazy river, a kids’ area; it’s wet and wild all the way in one of the best waterparks in South East Asia.
Adding to the excitement is the Flowrider – a five-foot stationary wave that you can surf, the Water Blaster for a catapult match, and the Euro Bungy that shoots you and your adrenaline sky high!
Saving on tickets: You can save up to 15% if you buy tickets in advance online.
3. Black Mountain Water Park, Thailand
About 15 minutes out of the town of Hua Hin is one of the most exciting waterparks in Thailand. A unique concept, this waterpark has a 17-metre-high tower from which 9 different kinds of sliders launch you into separate pools.
There is also a lazy river, a wave pool, a kids’ pool plus a wakeboarding area for more wet thrills. A vacation to Black Mountain Water Park works perfectly as a summer break; after all, what’s better than splashing around in water at a beach town?

4. Caribbean Bay, South Korea
A waterpark designed with the Caribbean as a theme, Caribbean Bay is divided into 5 fun zones – Aquatic Centre, Sea Wave, Bay Slide, Fortress, and Wild River.
Apart from thrilling rides like River Way, Bade Pool, Quick Ride, and Pool Side Slide, there is also a Spa Zone with a spa (obviously!), a sauna, a relaxing room with massage capsules, and a beauty zone. Great set up to unwind after a day of splashing through tubes and slipping down slides.
Saving tip on tickets: Check out the afternoon tickets, if you would like to enjoy the fun at lower costs. Warm afternoons and waterparks make for perfect holidays.
5. Legoland Water Park, Malaysia
Legoland Water Park is splashes, rides and creativity, all in one park. An ideal waterpark vacation for when the little ones are actually ‘little’, the height limit for rides here is lesser than at most other parks. There is the popular family ride called Red Rush that can fit up to six people.
Then there is the Brick Blaster, Slide Racer, and Splash and Swirl that are favourites with kids and families. When the thrills in the water get too much, there is always the option of getting busy with activities like building your own boat with Lego pieces, and then racing it. At Build a Raft you can do exactly that with giant blocks and then try getting in and floating. Fun!

There is even a surfing simulator called the Rush Rider to hone your surfing skills before your graduate onto the more challenging Bubbles’ Barrel.
