Romantic dinner dates are nice, but they are certainly not for everyone. If you’d prefer something more adventurous this Valentine’s Day, then go rogue with adrenaline-pumping activities on Feb 14. From bungy jumping at AJ Hackett Sentosa to leisure diving at Pulau Hantu, here are five thrilling date ideas to consider for the big V-Day.
Those looking to get their partner’s heart racing this Valentine’s Day should head to Singapore’s one and only bungy jump site at Siloso Beach, AJ Hackett Sentosa. Try an entire range of bungy jump styles thanks to the design of the jump decks and overhead roof, before receiving a certificate and membership card to commemorate the exciting affair. Simply book the experience for two here, and don’t forget to use your SingapoRediscovers Vouchers if you’ve got some to spare.
Scale to new heights with your partner over the V-Day weekend at Boulder Movement, an indoor bouldering gym with branches at both Downtown Gallery and Tai Seng. By purchasing the Couple’s Bouldering Pass, you are entitled to a three-house climbing session which includes a short orientation to the facility and safety briefing. Just don’t forget to bring along climbing shoes and socks to avoid renting them from the gym.
Make the long weekend feel like a vacation when you try leisure, open and advanced water diving at Pulau Hantu, all conducted by legitimate dive guides in Singapore. Couples who are PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver certified can book any of the leisure dives. Those who are new to diving should take the Open Water Course, while those who want to take their skills to the next level can sign up for the Advanced Water Course. These all-day programmes include a minimum of two dives and light refreshments; just note that the activities are not recommended for those with medical conditions.
Happening from Feb 12-14 (and later again on Mar 12-14), 42Race’s ‘Season of Love’ Virtual Series 2021 offers couples the chance to reconnect and get active. With the race available in categories of 3km, 5km, 10km and 21km, fitness enthusiasts can easily take to the tracks or even Singapore’s most romantic spots to complete the run and earn a complimentary limited edition charm bracelet for their loved one. Each entry costs $12.90 and race tees are available at an additional $14.90 each.
Here’s another activity eligible where you can use your SingapoRediscovers Vouchers. The Mega Adventure Singapore gives you a chance to zipline across Siloso Beach. While you’re at it, you and your partner can consider hopping on the MegaBounce as well, to jump up to eight metres high on bungy trampolines. Book your tickets here.
