Sentosa Foam Party – totally safe for kids

I’ve actually never been to one of those famous foam parties at Sentosa, even though they used to be all the rage several years ago. I get the appeal, I mean, it’s a party! With bubbles! And music! And tequila shots! I just didn’t like the close proximity with half-dressed strangers who seemed to be in constant danger of accidentally bumping into you with their various body parts.

The kids are obviously now much cooler than we are because they’ve just gone to their first ever foam party. Over the weekend, we were invited to visit Sentosa’s newest kids attraction called Port of Lost Wonder, a very impressive pirate-themed water playground.

It’s an interesting concept. The entrance fee (of $8 per child on weekdays and $15 on weekends) comes with a bag of doubloons (called curios) which can be spent on various activities in the play area.

One of the most popular spots was this foam pool, which costs 30 curios for a half hour slot. The kids had a blast smearing each other with bubbles, doing Santa Claus impressions and flinging foam in all directions. It was like the most awesome bubble bath they’ve ever had.

The other main attraction was this pirate ship with water slides and shooting jets of water and a ginormous pirate head bucket that dumped water down every couple of minutes.

After several hours of non-stop action in the blistering heat, the kids looked like they were ready to collapse. Kirsten crawled over to where I was sitting and said “I’m very tired, I need to rest.” Which pretty much translates into “I’m ready to go home now.”

That’s like my favorite end to every party – no whining or bargaining for 5 more minutes. Just this look of utter exhaustion followed by the tired shuffling of baby feet.

    This place looks like mighty great fun! And the curios concept teaches children about prudent use of money. I like!

      Yeah it is a lot of fun! Haha my kids still have some difficulty grasping that concept. Whenever they run out of money, they make us get some more. We have to ration it for them..

          I think they’re quite relaxed about the age limit, but just in case, you might want to call them to check first before going down. :)
