Seeking recharge in March? Your season to get recharged along with your kids!

When the March school holidays appear at your doorstep, what do you do? How do you recharge yourself, without burning a hole in your pocket?

The March school holidays are upon us, and you might already be wondering how to keep the kids occupied.

At the same time, school holidays are a time for parents to take a break from the regular school run, maybe wake up a bit later than usual, and, in general, re-charge their batteries and relax with the family.  But the million dollar question is, how do you recharge yourself and keep the kiddos occupied during the school vacation period without burning a hole in your pocket? 

Actually, you can enjoy your March holidays along with your kids without having to go too far or spend too much. You only need to know this secret.

Just board a bus, catch a train, grab a cab or drive to Mega Fun at Sentosa!

Once you’re in Sentosa, you will be blown away by the sheer variety of fun activities that have been lined up for kids and families. The best part is that it won’t cost you an arm and a leg!

These activities range from awesome attractions to delicious meals by the beach, guaranteeing something for every single member of your family! 

Here are eight reasons why Sentosa is where you should head to for great family fun during the March holidays!

1. Free Entry to Sentosa  

Because the March school holidays season is special, the regular admission fee to Sentosa has been waived!

Simply flash your ez-link card at the turnstile or breeze through in a locally registered IU vehicle. How awesome is that? 

2. FunFest with We Bare Bears

Once in Sentosa, prepare to have some fun under the sun. Slide through multiple soaking sprinklers with the 50-metre long Aquaplane.

4. Palawan Pirate Ship

Most kids love pirate adventures, and a real-life pirate ship scores off the charts in this department. Tell your kids that you are bringing them to the iconic Palawan Pirate Ship full of bubbling fountains and slides. Then watch their eyes go wide with wonder and excitement! This ship is perfect for kids from three to ten years of age.

Even if it’s a hot day outside, you don’t have to worry. You can cool down under the “pirate-head” area, which sends buckets of water gushing your way at regular intervals. For kids, there can’t be a better way to have fun!
