With plenty of fun yet affordable additions lately, Singapore is not so boring after all.
Let your hair down at go-karting

We’ve all had our fun at the arcade race simulators when we were younger. How about doing it for real? Spend Saturday racing your friends around a 500m course at The Karting Arena. Have a thrilling ride through 11 specially-designed turns that include hairpins, tight corners and ninety degree turns, and channel your inner F1-driver skills. The 8m wide lane even allows you to overtake your friends, just like in the game. Just don’t crash into the wall.
Where: 200 Turf Club Road, #01-01B, The Grandstand, South Car Park

Have a competition with your friends, or simply have a hoot bonding over your lack of skills. With so many different activities to try, we guarantee that you and your clique will love this park to bits. Plus, it means you don’t need to think of wet weather contingency plans.
