So you’ve done all the leg work to celebrate the love month. Problem? Half of Singapore’s population is reserving the same restaurant you are eyeing! Sounds familiar, right? Why not try something new this year with these 1-for-1 activities on the ENTERTAINER? Surprise your SO while saving big bucks at these 5 hip and fun alternative date venues!
#1 Double FlowRider Session at Wave House Sentosa
Ride the waves of love with a Double FlowRider session at Wave House Sentosa. This activity is not the traditional candlelight dinner kind of romantic, and you can expect to make a serious splash as you two attempt to bust out your best (or worst) surfing moves. It’s ideal for adventure seekers, or just about anyone who likes some novelty for their V-Date.
Address: 36 Siloso Beach Walk
#2 Vertical Skywalk at AJ Hackett Sentosa
Two words that are associated with AJ Hackett Sentosa: Adrenaline rush. If you want your date to be anything but cliché, you have to try AJ Hackett’s Vertical Skywalk. You literally walk down a vertical surface, from a height of 45 metres down to ground level. There’s nothing more memorable for a couple than witnessing each other overcome fears and face thrilling adventures!
Address: 30 Siloso Beach Walk, Sentosa Island
#3 Workshop at The Coffee Academics
Lovers and lovers of coffee will get a dose of fun trying to get the perfect blend of specialty coffee. There’s no better venue to train than through the expert baristas of The Coffee Academics. Whether you two are certified coffee addicts, met at a coffee shop, or simply like making coffee for each other, you will enjoy these workshops ranging from brewing basics to more advanced, in-depth accredited courses such as the professional worldwide certification courses by City & Guilds.
Address: #B1-12, 252 North Bridge Road
#4 Virtual Reality Escape Room at Sandbox VR
If gaming is your thing and you want your V-day to be exciting, escape the real world with your date for an hour and explore a game and adventure that is entirely yours. Sandbox VR promises that “they’ll be as fun to play as they are to watch.” So be ready to rough it out in a different dimension, and then find your way again in each other’s arms after a successful mission!
Address: 181 Orchard Road, #05-31
#5 Wall Climbing at Ground Up Climbing
Common sense dictates that personal hygiene is a deal breaker on a first date, but breaking out a sweat together on Valentine’s Day may be a great way for you to bond. Ground Up Climbing offers a new way to stay healthy while enjoying the thrill of climbing. This date is a surefire pleaser for couples who are in it to outwit each other or to cheer each other all the way to the top! They offer outdoor leading climbing, indoor climbing, and boulder gyms. After sweating it out, cool down and grab a bite in their cosy and newly-opened cafe to wind the occasion down.
Address: 60 Tessensohn Road, 2nd Level, Multi-Purpose Hall, Civil Service Club
