Top 10 extreme sports in Singapore – for heart-stopping moments

Singapore is not known for its extreme sports scene but continues to attract thrill seekers who converge on its shores in the hope of experiencing an adrenaline rush like no other.

1

Speed Skating

If you ever wanted to experience the joys of speed skating whilst on holiday in Singapore, then look no further than the action-packed, fast-paced skating rinks that are located in Kallang or Jurong East. Herein lies an opportunity for you to strap on a pair of skates and manoeuver your way across the smooth surface of the rink. Taking baby steps is advisable as you build up the confidence to reach faster speeds, similar to those of an experienced Olympics skater.

2

Slacklining

Though this may not be too familiar to the average traveller, slacklining involves you walking across a line which has been fastened between two trees or between two points. Think of it as 'walking the plank' with the exception of falling into the ocean. However, this activity serves as a great way to pass time and can be used on picnics and outings.

3

Wakeboarding at East Coast Park

Wakeboarding by far is one of the best ways to get your heart rate up and energy levels working overtime owing to the fantastic facilities available. The place to be is Singapore Wake Park in East Coast Park which has access to a cable ski system which would mean that you do not have to go through the hassle of renting out boats. In the event you want to learn the ropes of this sport, the park conducts classes so that you are taken through the basics which will go a long way towards ensuring that you leave the premises as a skilled and knowledgeable wakeboarder. Further, if you are looking for a place to stay, consider Grand Park Orchard which is found a mere 12 km away from East Coast Park and is one of the 5-star hotels in Orchard Road Singapore worth heading over to.

4. GX-5 Extreme Swing

Redefining the term 'extreme' is the GX-5 Extreme Swing which is found in Clarke Quay. Here, you and four other friends can strap yourselves into one amazing ride that will have you launched into the air while being fastened to elastic cords. The cost for such a ride is 45 SD.

5

Rock Climbing

Seen as the perfect sport for all ages, rock climbing at Go Kallang's Climb Central must be given a try. This form of indoor rock climbing will have you navigating upwards while being confronted with tiny obstacles and the need to make quick decisions will almost be a given.

6

Trampolining

Set about engaging in gravity-defying jumps, somersaults and any other form of stunt that you can come up with at the Amped Trampoline Park Singapore. Take the kids along and be a part of a fun-filled afternoon in Singapore.

7

Super Car Rides

Put yourselves in the shoes of a Formula 1 driver by accessing the Super Car facility at the Singapore Street Circuit. Fasten your seatbelts in either a Lamborghini Gallardo or Ferrari California and zoom past some of the area's most awe-inspiring sights under the watchful eyes of an experienced driver.

8

Skydiving

If it is skydiving then it has to be iFly Sentosa Singapore. The simulator will have you suspended in mid-air and afford similar experiences to that of actually being in free-fall. It is recommended that you make online bookings at least two days in advance of your intended visit.

9

Ziplining

Imaging moving over canopies and thick foliage at speeds of up to 60 km as you are suspended from a cable. Megazip Adventure Park is for the daring and adventure buffs and for those wanting to try their hand at ziplining for the very first time.

10

Bungee Jumping

AJ Hackett Sentosa allows for extreme sports fans to discover the ins and outs of bungee jumping. Once you come to terms with having to jump off from dizzying heights, the rest will literally be smooth going. What's best is the fact that for 159 SD you will receive access to the Skybridge and an e-certificate too.
