Wooshing my way down town (east)


Ever heard of Vanessa Carlton's song titled "A thousand miles"?
Thanks to C for the inspiration :)

Here's the lyrics edited by yours truly:

Wooshing my way down town (east)
Walking fast
Faces pass
And I'm home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making a ride
Through the slide

Both C and I were humming to A Thousand Miles while queueing for the rides!

***********************************************************************************************

Our heartfelt thanks to Si Hui from Sample Store for inviting us down to the launch party of Wild Wild Wet's new ride last Sunday!

Arrived at the registration booth at 9am sharp and we were pleased to find the staff all dressed up identically! 👯

 Thanks NTUC club for hiring such a cute and humorous emcee (as quoted by C haha)  

And not forgetting the light refreshments provided by them 😛

The objective of this event is to hype the launch of The Woosh, Singapore's longest inflatable freestyle water slide as well as to promote the Seeing Double campaign and the special promotions offered right here at Downtown East! Scroll down to see how YOU can win a 2D1N staycation package at D'resort 😍

The sun was scorching hot on that morning and applying sunblock doesn't help us at all... Nevertheless, we had a good laugh thanks to the emcee (Urgh I didn't manage to catch his name) and there were 111 pairs present at the event!

Try spotting us :)

The long wait is over, we had the chance to break-free from our wristband and time to play!

I'm an avid fan of water theme parks and this is my Nth time visiting Wild Wild Wet. Although the escape theme park has ceased operations few years back, I appreciate the fact that Wild Wild Wet still exists and has expanded to fit in MORE thrilling rides! I'll be back to this water theme park in Mid-july with my friends again!

The Woosh at Wild Wild Wet - operating on School Holidays, Public Holidays, Fridays to Sundays only
Feel the bliss and the wind in your hair as you slide down this awesome inflatable ride that is 50m long! Valid for a limited time only!

In the month of June and July, members of the public will have an exciting attraction to check out here. As mentioned previously, The Woosh is Singapore's longest inflatable freestyle water slide, where guests can slide down the entire length of 50m from a height of 4.5m in almost any way possible (more on that later). The dual lanes also mean that guests can challenge each other and compete to see who can slide further along the slide.

As reiterated, please be reminded that The Woosh is only operating on School Holidays, Public Holidays, Fridays to Sundays only. 

Ready to slide down with your unique style...?

Ok I ran out of poses here HAHAHA

Basically I couldn't maintain my excitement la as you can see... I have not kept my bag in the locker 🙈


Ok 1 more picture before we get changed 😝

& we are ready to rock The Woosh!!!



While waiting for our turn to climb up the inflatable ladder, we had a great time chatting with the friendly staff to find out more about the ride.

(This are unofficial facts obtained from them, exclusive on my blog only 😅)
  • This isn't a permanent attraction at Wild Wild Wet, they will be gone after 30 July 2017
  • The staff are outsourced from another company - they didn't say that but I'm guessing that they are not part of Wild Wild Wet staff
  • The owner of The Woosh is an Ang Moh. He brought his inflatable slide to Singapore and we managed to spot him there! If you're lucky enough you will see this handsome Ang Moh guy. Kinda regretted that we didn't ask for a photo 😢
I think we got our sunburn while waiting for our turn eh...

We were not daring enough to challenge each other at The Woosh.... so we decided to slide down together in 1 lane 😂 Managed to video it down but I find it too embarrassing to post it here due to our contagious laughter HAHAHA

Overall I enjoyed this ride and reality hits me hard when I realize that this is just a temporary attraction... We had a good scream sliding down in our unique way and it would be better if the water current is stronger to push us all the way to the end of the slide.

Please note that adults are not allowed to play at the Kidz Zone area. Both of us tried sliding down but to get a verbal reminder from the lifeguard 😲 However, adults can enjoy the slide along with the kids. Alamak if that's the case why can't we slide down without kids?!

Cabana for rent

 Flamingo float is inclusive HAHA

For your information

Here are the rest of the rides that are not ready yet...

I always thought that the Free Fall slide (in yellow) is opened to the public but I just found out that the ride will be temporarily closed from 22 May 2017.

Moving on to the rest of the existing attractions at Wild Wild Wet:

Tsunami


The Waterworks


Professor's playground



Whether you are young or old, healthy or unhealthy, skinny or not skinny - you can't miss out on this pink and blue slide located at Professor's playground! I will never ever skip this slide as it is a short yet thrilling ride even for my age HAHA. Trust me, just try this once and let the kids go first if there is a queue 😄

Shiok River


My favourite attraction because I love to laze around...


This is not an attraction but a place filled with sunbathing lounge chair~
