Twice the size and better experiences with new rides!
Completion of Singapore’s First Integrated Water Park Resort
Not-to-be-missed benefits for NTUC members
Singapore, 2 October 2017 – Singapore’s beloved water park, Wild Wild Wet (WWW) has completed its revamp. It is now twice its original size, and has launched four new rides since April this year, with the latest two – Vortex and Kraken Racers – opening to public today. This expansion of Wild Wild Wet also marks the completion of Singapore’s First Integrated Water Park Resort (IWPR), offering members and the public a one-stop seamless experience from D’Resort to Wild Wild Wet. With this completion, NTUC Club is well on track its five-year Refreshing Downtown East project. The final phase will see the expansion of the retail, dining and entertainment offerings which will be completed by the first half of 2018.
Earlier this year, thrill-seekers were greeted by two adrenaline-pumping rides at Wild Wild Wet – Royal Flush, the first hybrid ride combining the Behemoth BOWL40 and TornadoWAVE, and Free Fall, the tallest freefall water slide in Asia. Both the rides have been highly popular and park visitorship has almost doubled since.
Now, with the expansion, thrill-seekers looking to feed their adventurous appetites can take on the Vortex, which will send them splashing down the slide through twists and turns at speeds of up to 10 meters per second!
While rides like Vortex are designed for the thrill-seekers, Wild Wild Wet remains committed to families and young children with another new ride – Kraken Racers. With a minimum height requirement of only 1.1 metre, the four-lane intertwined ride promises to be fun for the whole family. Quirky floats and spacious cabanas which include a snack platter and chilled drinks to beat the heat will also be available for rental to ensure guests can comfortably enjoy their experience at Wild Wild Wet. Events and programmes will also be introduced so that every visit is a unique one, including the upcoming first Halloween-themed run, Panic In The Park
The water park is connected via a short access path to D’Resort, giving vacationers at the latter a seamless IWPR experience – where guests can step out of their room and gain direct access to Wild Wild Wet. NTUC members can expect even more benefits at Singapore’s first integrated Water Park Resort. Each room reservation by a member comes with complimentary Adult tickets to Wild Wild Wet that allow for unlimited access throughout their stay. “Being an NTUC member definitely has its perks. Getting absolutely free access to Wild Wild Wet for the entire family when we book a room at D’Resort is amazing as we used our savings to shop and enjoy the other facilities at Downtown East such as Orchid Bowl and eXplorerkid,” shared Mr Sebastian Ong, 64, a civil servant with the Amalgamated Union Of Public Employees, who stayed at D’Resort in August.
Since the launch of D’Resort, occupancy rates have been increasing steadily particularly so when the first two new rides at Wild Wild Wet were completed. Feedback has also been encouraging, validating the efforts NTUC Club has put in so far to refresh and revamp of Downtown East.
“As one of Singapore’s most iconic water parks, Wild Wild Wet has entertained scores of families and guests since its opening in 2004. Many of our NTUC members had been requesting for more and we heard them! The integration with D’Resort to become Singapore’s first Integrated Water Park Resort, the expansion and the new attractions have been warmly received. We have also introduced over 20 new dining and retail options at E!Avenue so that members can thoroughly enjoy themselves at a single stop. Even as we strive to offer an enhanced experience for the whole family, we are pleased to share that our members will continue to enjoy special privileges at affordable rates,” said Mr Lim Eng Lee, NTUC Club’s Chief Executive Officer.
