Forest Adventure @ Bedok Reservoir Park

In no particular sequence of which event took place first, this was one of the places we went to during the one week term break. This place was on my to-go list for the longest time. I have sat on it for the longest time due to the distance we need to travel. Veron asked if we would be keen to go together and we made it happened! It's always more fun to go on a date with friends!

Tucked within Bedok Reservoir, walk approximately about 10 mins or less from Carpark A, by-passing a kayak Water-Venture centre on our right. Continue walking until and you see Forest Adventure hut.

When you go out with another blogging mum, this is the typical kind of scene you will see. We will be busy clicking away whenever we can, to capture as many pictures as possible so as to create new content for our blogs. =)

Go read the board and find out how the kids course is beneficial for the child.

First and foremost, put on the safety gears, helmet and harness.

The adventure began at Kids Course! This is suitable for children age 5 - 10.

Instructor taught them how to position the "eye".

He can't wait to start !

Let's go ! The pictures below showed most of the stations he had went through to complete the course.

The kids made friends and formed small chats while waiting.
Another challenging station.

We did not get to try Megazip during our staycation in Sentosa (To be blogged later) but to our surprise, they have it in the Kids Course. Imagine someone's excitement !

Xav had enjoyed himself tremendously and went for a second round. I rewarded him with a certificate of accomplishment at the end of it. The piece of certificate costs $2 if you would like to get it printed out with your child's name. I would think it's pretty nice.

My opinions (note that this is a #nonsponsoredpost) :
- it is a really great place to bring the kids to if you are tired of hitting the parks minus the mozzies. Go ahead and plan a date with your friends. I managed to stay bites free with thanks to Young Living Purification Essential Oil. I generously dripped a few drops and apply all over my limbs and back. Btw, am a real mozzie detector, they will come for me first.

- Train your kids' confidence and gross motor skills at Singapore's one and only treetop obstacle course! From the ground, it looks kind of simple when you just lift up your head but to the kids, it takes a lot of courage to overcome the fear of height plus some of the more challenging stations are really difficult for some. Even so for Xav who is considered adventurous in my view, hesitated to take his first step forward.

- The trainers could have been more encouraging to the kids who were in the course. To me it seems like, if you can do it, go ahead, if you cannot do it, then it's just too bad. The trainers will be around to supervise and making sure safety rules are being followed. Of course accompanying parent need to play a part too !  Note that one accompanied parent needs to be with the child at the Kids Course, should the child needs support. The trainers are not going to be with your child through out.

There is also a height requirement for the courses :
Mini Course (consisting of 8 obstacles) : 1 metre
