Looking for activities for your tween or teenager or just fun things to do with teens in Singapore?
One of the things we love about living in Singapore is how safe it is compared to other places meaning kids can often commute solo from a younger age than in other countries. With teenagers, we can afford them more freedom with independent outings than we would if we were living somewhere else. If you’re looking for some inspiration to keep your teens busy in Singers, here’s our list of fun teen activities – whether your teen chooses to go on these adventures with you or with their friends! Obvs you can’t be the one to suggest these ideas to your teens, that’d be way uncool, maybe just drop some hints?

Splash over at Wild Wild Wet
A Sassy Mama favourite, this super fun water park in Pasir Ris has varying levels of thrill factor. Small enough for even your tweens not to get lost, but substantial enough for them to have a splashing good time. Parents (if you get invited that is!) will love the Ular-lah (raft slide) and adrenaline junkies will go crazy for Slide Up!
Note: Due to Covid-19, Wild Wild Wet has a booking system in place where you will have to book your date in order to enter the water park.

Check out Universal Studios Singapore
Located on Sentosa, Universal Studios theme park is definitely worth a trip. The Revenge of the Mummy Ride as well as the Battlestar Galactica ride are firm favourites with queues for the rides reaching almost 120 minutes. If your teenager is not a fan of rollercoasters, there are still rides that will be fun. The Transformers Ride and Shrek 4D are also crowd favourites and are sure to get your heart pumping without all the twists and turns. Currently, the Madagascar section of Universal Studios is being renovated into a brand new minions land so be sure to stay tuned for more updates!

‘Fly’ safely at iFly
Defy gravity at iFly on the Sentosa Beachfront where teens can experience the simulated skydive in the flight chamber. Definitely not for the sensitive, it gets loud and windy in there and you have to have your wits about you to not lose control! Perfect for thrill-seeking teens.
iFly, 43 Siloso Beach Walk #01-01, Singapore 099010
Try Out an Escape Room
Want something hands-on? Why not try out these escape rooms where you can uncover clues and solve riddles together? Designed with a theme in mind, escape room games are incredibly immersive with detailed storylines that make you feel like you’re a movie character. But these games aren’t just pure fun; in fact, you’ll have to pool together your critical thinking skills to pick out clues that will help you progress forward and find the exit! Consult our list of escape rooms in Singapore to get started!
There are two ways to do this. For cable skiing and wakeboarding, head to Singapore Wake Park. The Sassy Mama team tried it and we had a great time bonding over spills and thrills as we were pulled along this East Coast lagoon by a suspended motorised cable. If you prefer more of a challenge, have a look online at the myriad of wakeboarding operators who will happily tow you from their speedboat.
Visit Megazip Adventure Park
Not enough of a challenge? Then check out Megazip Adventure Park, home to the Megazip — the 75-metre high, 450-metre long, 50 km/ph flying fox that will give you the flight of your life! It’s also home to Climb Max, the 3 level, 40-foot-high adventure course; the Parajump which only requires a 50-foot leap of faith; or the North Face, one of the highest climbing walls in Singapore!

If your teens are keen for some more action, then get them climbing at The Rock School, or the sky-high obstacle course and rock climbing centre at Adventure HQ Khatib. Or try any one of the rock climbing options in Singapore.

Far East Plaza at 14 Scotts Road is a beacon for teenagers due to the pocket-friendly prices and the number of fashion ‘blog boutiques’ that offer the latest fads.
