1. Go-Karting @ KF1 Karting Circuit

Ever wanted to re-live your childhood dream of being a Formula 1 Driver? Well, now you can at KF1 Karting Circuit! Follow the tracks of motor experts such as Lewis Hamilton and Michael Schumacher in your very own Go-Kart.

Grab a couple of friends and race in your very own Grand Prix as you navigate hairpin turns on a world-class track designed by esteemed F1 Designer, Herman Tilke. Certain segments of the track run under the MRT tracks for added atmosphere. For a more magical experience, head down at night to race under the very lights used in F1 night races.

2. Baseball/Softball @ Homerun Baseball

Remember the days when you were introduced to various sports during P.E lessons? For most of us, softball or baseball were included in the curriculum. Unfortunately, those lessons were short-lived and we never got the chance to swing a bat again.

That chance has now presented itself in Homerun Baseball, Singapore’s very first indoor automated batting cage facility.  Take your pick of either softball or baseball and head to the cages where powerful machines capable of firing balls at up to 110km/h await you. If batting is not your cup of tea, pitching machines are available for you to test your arm.

Planning a class outing? The more the merrier! Homerun Baseball’s facilities accommodate a full baseball/softball game for large groups. Whether it is swinging a bat or throwing balls, Homerun Baseball is the perfect place to de-stress. Sure beats squeezing a stress ball!

4. Hiking @ HSBC TreeTop Walk & Macritchie Reservoir Park

“Disconnect to reconnect” – Leave the electronics behind and reconnect with nature as you hike through the last remaining bastions of local rainforest. Conquer your fear of heights at HSBC TreeTop Walk, Singapore’s highest free-standing suspension bridge. Along the trail, keep your eyes peeled for local wildlife such as the Blue-eared Kingfisher and flying squirrel.

Not forgetting also, our ubiquitous tree-swinging friends who dot the trail! Encountering a family of  monkeys blocking your way on a suspension bridge 25 meters above the forest floor is definitely an interesting experience.

To celebrate the end of the trail, head to either the Thomson Road Belt or Bukit Timah belt via the park connectors and indulge in the numerous food options that will satisfy your tummy. Beats the point of hiking but hey, you need to replenish all those lost calories right? After all, it is the holidays and you deserve a little indulgence.

Nearest MRT: Marymount & Bishan

The TreeTop Walk is accessible from MacRitchie Reservoir Park via MacRitchie Nature Trail (indicated as Route 3 on map) or from Venus Drive, off Upper Thomson Road. The distance to the entrance of the TreeTop Walk is approximately 4.5 km (1.5 – 2 hour walk) from the reservoir park and 2.5 km (45 mins – 1 hr walk) from the carpark at Venus Drive.

5. Game @ PlayNation

“Eh whose house free to chill? “

 

*Crickets*

 

“Let’s just go to town”

 

*Spends the whole day wandering aimlessly from place to place*

 

An unending problem faced by many students. Thankfully, one solution already exists in the form of PlayNation.  Established way before ‘Netflix and Chill’ is PlayNation where you can ‘Game and Dine’ instead. Set in a loft-inspired space adorned with pop art motifs, each gaming terminal features its very own comfy couch and personal LCD TV. A well stocked collection of titles across the three main gaming platforms (XBOX, Wii, PS4) will keep you and your friends entertained for hours straight.

Busting moves on Dance Central left you peckish? Order from the in-house kitchen’s extensive menu! They serve a whole range of food from mains such as Chicken Chop to finger food such as Chili Cheese Fries (Highly Recommended). Did I mention that free flow of drinks is included in every package as well? Snacks, drinks and games in one place? It is highly likely that you will be there the whole day.
