Sentosa, S.E.A. Aquarium & Adventure Cove Waterpark (16 Feb 2013)


Cable car ride


Bird's eye view of the "Rainbow Reef" at Adventure Cove Waterpark™


Bluwater Bay


Burgers and Chicken wings (that got fish taste?)


Maritime museum



------------------------------------------------------------------------------

S.E.A. Aquarium™

Very similar setup compared to Underwater World, just that it has more variety of marine life and it has a restaurant within which visitors can dine and admire the marine life. There is a "Typhoon Theatre" which requires a separate charge of $15.


"Strait of Karimata and Java Sea"






Jellyfish






The world largest window to the ocean, "Open Ocean", measuring 36m wide and 8.3m tall






Lobster


Puffer fish

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Adventure Cove Waterpark™

The entry ticket for the park is $29 for adults and the locker rental is pegged at a high price of $10 for small while $20 for a large locker. Even though the locker is re-usable after unlocking, the price is still too expensive. The opening of the rides in the waterpark is subjected to weather conditions such as lightning risk.




The 620 metres long "Adventure River"




Submarine shaped food kiosk








"The Bay Restaurant" - Food at Adventure Watercove is expensive and poor quality. Little choices available, mainly "junk food" that people who watch their diet will dislike.




The "Big Bucket Treehouse"




The Dolphins' area???








The "Dueling Racer"


Visitors need to take note that there is separate charges for the "Ray Bay"
