Unusual Sports & Activities to Try in Singapore – Go Beyond the Norm!

Looking for something different to do in Singapore other than the usual sports and activities? Here are some rather “unusual” alternatives that offer plenty of fun experiences too.

Indoor Skydiving

You don’t have to jump 12,000 feet off the ground to enjoy skydiving; the same experience awaits indoors at iFly Singapore! Located at Sentosa’s Siloso Beachfront, within easy reach of Park Hotel Clarke Quay, it features one of the largest indoor skydiving wind tunnels in the world, providing a unique adventure for the whole family.

Stand up Paddling

SUP or stand up paddling combines elements of canoeing and surfing and is best enjoyed on tranquil waters; while it’s relatively easy, you get an excellent workout too! For those staying at Clarke Quay hotels, Singapore SUP rental locations at Sentosa can be easily reached and include the Tanjong Beach Club and Ola Beach Club.

You may associate unicycles with circus performers, but this is a fun activity that anyone can try. While balancing on one-wheel may sound challenging, once you get the hang of it, there will be no stopping you. Singapore Unicyclists, a popular club, even hosts unicycle hockey which adds a whole new dimension!


What do you get when you combine elements from volleyball, football and gymnastics with lively music and an inflatable platform that has trampolines? Bossaball of course! Check out organisations like Bossaball Singapore which give you a chance to learn or witness this sport that is becoming a worldwide smash.



Extreme sports to try in Singapore if you’re an adrenaline junkie

The next time you are in Singapore, consider going off on an adventure sports tag and trying out everything. Here are the top 5 you should be trying to get that blood pumping.

1. Cable-skiing

Take water-skiing and turn it all upside down. How would you like to be dragged across the water by a cable car? You are definitely going to want to leave your hotel the likes of Park Hotel Clarke Quay to try this one.

2. Bungee Jumping

You might not believe that Singapore has bungee-jumping, but it does, and it is the best thing ever. Give it a try.

Located close to Clarke Quay hotels in Singapore, GX5 is an extreme swing that drops you 50m from the air. What a thrill!

4. Ziplining

Let the wind rustle your hair as you surge over the treetops and take in Singapore with some ziplining. The Mega Adventure Park is where you can do this. Take your friends with you.

5. Indoor Skydiving

If you aren’t interested in throwing yourself out of a plan at high altitude but still wonder what that feels like, indoor skydiving is for you. Check out iFly Singapore at Siloso Beach Walk where they toss you into a wind tunnel.
