Forest Adventure, as its name, is an outdoor recreational theme park which offers a lot of outdoor challenges and team-building activities. However, this Forest Adventure is a bit different from other recreational theme park that have many mechanical rides and machines and the visitors only have to sit or stay still while the rides do the work. In this theme park, the visitors are fully involved in the games and their ability might play much to the outcome of the game. Forest Adventure, which is located in Bedok Reservoir Park of Singapore, is designed just like a forest. It is ranked the 82 of 274 favorite recreational places in Singapore. This theme park specialized in physical and mental challenge games which require certain fitness skills of the visitors. Aside from that, this theme park can also be used for those who want to enjoy the fun while building their bodies and ability to survive the outdoor challenges.
Forest Adventure divides their challenges for kids and adults, for they have different capability and limitation. On the grand course, there are 34 kinds of obstacles which include the leap of faith, trapezes, and bridges. This course is addressed for adults and youths aged more than 14 or at least have 1.4 meter (4 feet 7”) heights and takes about 2 to 3 hours to be finished. For the kid course, the challenges are more fun and easier. This course is designed for children aged 5 to 10 with at least 1.1 meter heights and takes only an hour to complete all the tasks. At both courses, the players are expected to be free of doing anything they like to survive all challenges ahead. Moreover, although there will be supervisors and trainers who are ready to help you, but the challenges will be a bit difficult to be passed especially for the first timers. Since Forest Adventure offers many physical activities, safety is a main concern. The construction of the rides are designed by French designer who specialized on building tree top courses and based on European norms. Every year the designer comes to control and maintain the safety of the courses. The instructors also have to pass certain courses before they are allowed to supervise the visitors. Forest Adventure also cares about the situation of the forest and the trees around it. Moreover, before they begin to open the park everyday, they always check the installation as well as the condition of the equipment thoroughly.
