Nothing beats the rush of adrenaline, blood coursing through your veins as your heart pumps wildly. Some may even call themselves adrenaline junkies, always looking for that one exciting activity to give them that buzz.
Whether you’re a 9-5 corporate guy wanting to beat the weekday blues or simply looking for your next adventure while visiting Singapore for the weekend, we guarantee that this list will give even the biggest adrenaline junkie the most awesome day yet!
Here’s Evolve Vacation’s pick of 7 Places To Get An Adrenaline Rush In Singapore:
1) Swim with the sharks.
You don’t have to go cage diving in South Africa to go face to face with one of nature’s fiercest predators. At Underwater World, Sentosa you can swim in a tank full of leopard, tiger, and bull sharks. You don’t need a scuba diving certification to swim with these beasts – all you need is courage to jump in!
Where: Underwater World, Sentosa
Admission: Daily, at 9am, 10.30am, 11.30am, 1.30pm, 2.30pm, 3.30pm, 4.30pm and 5pm. S$120 per person for 90 mins (30 mins of wet time), diver-led guide included.
2) Be an F1 driver for the day.
Get your Michael Schumacher on and try Ultimate Drive. You’ll take on Singapore’s Formula One Circuit in the supercar of your choice – a Ferrari F430 F1 Spider or a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder. Ultimate Drive offers three routes: the Street Circuit Tour (15 minutes), the Street to Freeway Tour (30 minutes) or the Ultimate Tour (1 hour).
Where: Ultimate Drive, Marina Bay Sands
Opening hours: Daily, 9 am -10 pm
3) Get stoked.
Ever wanted to know what it feels like to be hurtled around at full speed, balancing on a board at the same time? Try cable wakeboarding, where the cable travels at a speed of 20 to 58 km/h, running counterclockwise around a lagoon. Feeling adventurous? Why not try some tricks? The SKI360° park also has a variety of obstacles such as kickers, a funbox and wallrides.
Location: 1206A East Coast Parkway
Opening hours: Mon, Tues & Thu: 10am – 7pm
Wed & Fri: 12pm – 9pm
Sat & Sun: 9am – 10pm
4) Fire away.
Vent out your frustrations from work and get some paintball action with your friends. Hide from your friends, find the perfect spot for your “attack” and when the timing is right — just fire those paint pellets away!
Where: Red Dynasty, Yishun
Opening hours: Mon – Fri
9.00 am – 9.00 pm
Sat, Sun and Public Holidays
9.00 am – 7.00 pm
5) Scale new heights.
Are you afraid of heights? It’s time to conquer your fear and channel your inner Tarzan as you make your way from tree to tree at Forest Adventure. Although the obstacle course is only 5-8 meters above the ground, you’ll surely feel the rush as you try their 50 obstacles and 4 giant ziplines.
Where: Forest Adventure, Bedok
Opening hours: Daily 9.30am – 6.30pm
(closed on Monday except PH)
6) Scream your lungs out.
Curious to see what all the screaming is about in the Clarke Quay area? Chances are, they’re all coming from the G-MAX riders. Of course, this list wouldn’t be complete without the G-MAX! At a mind-blowing speed of 200kmh, adrenaline junkies get hurtled into the air in a steel reinforced capsule. If that doesn’t make you scream your lungs out, we don’t know what else will!
Where: G-MAX, Clarke Quay
Opening hours: Mondays to Thursdays,: 1pm-1am; Fridays, 1pm-2am; Saturday, 12pm-2am; Sundays, 12pm-1am.

7) Get in a cage with a World Champion.
Sure, you’ve trained mixed martial arts before or watched it on TV – but have you ever gone one-on-one with a World Champion? Evolve MMA has the largest number of World Champions of any martial arts school in the world. It has authentic World Champions in Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Mixed Martial Arts, Boxing, Wrestling, Submission Grappling, and more – why not book a private class and see what you can learn?
