If you're not quite ready to take a leap out of an actual plane, you can experience indoor skydiving at iFly Singapore on Sentosa instead. Step inside the five-story wind tunnel, and see what it feels like to fall from 12,000 to 3,000 feet in the sky! Suitable for kids from 7 years, iFly boasts of an acrylic glass wall that provides you with a breathtaking view of the South China Sea and Siloso Beach. First time skydiving? No worries, as you'll receive professional training and guidance from certified instructors, complimentary gear rental, and a realistic skydive experience at a fraction of the cost of the actual feat.

Combining the best of a go-cart and a toboggan, the Skyline Luge puts you in control as you race down more than 650 meters of the Jungle Trail or Dragon Trail! At night, you can discover a different challenge, while maneuvering down each track with unique lighting. Prices for 2 Luge rides and Skyrides start from SG$24 per person but get the Family packages that start from SG$57 for a family of 3 people. If you’re planning to make this a frequent activity, get the annual pass from SG$40 per person which gives you access to discounts and member perks for the long run. Do take note that kids will need to be at least 85cm to ride the Skyride with an adult, and 135cm to ride alone. Only those 6 years and above can take the Luge solo, and those younger will need to ride together with an accompanying adult!
Watch the South China Sea go by as you whizz along high above the trees along the 450-meters zipline! For kids who like to fly, this one's clearly for you! Crawl, climb, zip and ride through other attractions such as MegaClimb, a 3-level tree obstacle course with a 15-meter jump. Don't miss out on MegaBounce where you get to bounce 8-meters high on bungy trampolines of Siloso Beach. All online ticket purchases are valid for 90 days. Click here to purchase.

Cheers to an unconventional family bonding activity! Check out AJ Hackett, an adventure facility right in the heart of Sentosa Island. Here, you and the kids can dive right into a full-fledged Bungy experience, with scenic views of the island’s surrounding to boot. If jumping off a high-rise platform is too extreme for you or your family’s liking, there are other less-terrifying options available, such as the Family Swing which sits up to three. Young kids aren’t left out either! Train them to overcome any phobia of heights by opting for the Skybridge course, a transparent platform 47m above ground where participants can walk on without any need for a harness.
