One of the highlights of the Junior area is Singapore's first family slide. It’s actually designed to be wide enough to accommodate up to a family of four sliding down at the same time! ?But don’t worry because the slide is smooth and gentle enough to ensure you won’t go speeding off the slide.
Another area you can explore is called Adenventure Play which has so many exciting things to do! If you’re an adventurous soul, you’ll love this section of the playground. ? Among the attractions here are two long, metallic tube slides that start from the top tier of the terraced slopes.
