The Play Tower, Singapore’s tallest outdoor play feature, features a 4-storey vertical net play area called the Vertical Challenge. It has numerous rope-based obstacles, including stepping pods, hammocks, grip wall and disc swings. Visitors can scale up and scramble through the nets and obstacles to reach the very top which offers a 360 view of East Coast Park and the sea. The enclosed tube slides on the third and fourth floor offer a quick descent and they can start all over again.

Suitable for children 13 years and older.

Younger children (between 5 and 12 years can climb and explore the less challenging, wave-like Leisure Nets, located at the base of the Play Tower.
