If you still have no idea where to bring your significant other for a date, we have the best suggestion for you! We're talking about a place where you get to have fun yet exhilarated at the same time, where you will feel tonnes of emotions.
This place we're talking about, ladies and gentlemen, is an adventure waterpark!
We know, we know; who spends a date at a waterpark, right?
Actually, having an impromptu day out at an adventure waterpark is the perfect way to spend a couple's day out.
Our pick? The uber fun Desaru Coast Adventure Waterpark
Set against the backdrop of a traditional fishing village in Johor Bahru, Desaru Coast Adventure Waterpark boasts five different zones and is home to various unique rides and slides, as well as one of the biggest wave pools in the world!
From exciting, adrenaline-pumping activities to children friendly attractions, there are over 20 wet and dry rides and slides to be enjoyed.
So, what’s there to do for couples? Here is our recommendation of things to do with your significant other at Desaru Coast Adventure Waterpark that is sure to strengthen your bond with each other:
#1 Learn how to surf
Instead of hanging out at local shopping malls during Valentine’s Day like those boring ol’ couples do, why not learn how to surf at the Tidal Wave Beach
? Holding more than four million gallons of water spread over nearly three acres, the Tidal Wave Beach is one of the biggest wave pools in the world!
There's nothing more romantic than grabbing a hold of your bae’s hand and learn how to surf together. Safety vests and surfboards are provided, so don’t worry about wiping out. Think about all the cool points you’re going to earn from your crush when you nail that first wave.
#2 Chill out in total luxury
Now you’ve conquered the waves, give yourself a pat on the back and have a well-deserved rest at the Beachside Cabanas
located just beside the Tidal Wave Beach.
You can relax and enjoy the view of the giant wave pool and observe other couples wiping out while surfing, all from the comfort of your private cabana.
If you want to get yourself a tan, you could opt to lounge along the 170-meter long sandy shorelin
e of the Tidal Wave Beach. Don’t worry, there are plenty of places to chill and catch your breath at Desaru Coast Adventure Waterpark.
#3 Scream your lungs out!
If you want to show your crush or your SO how manly man you are, there are a couple of attractions in Desaru Coast Adventure Waterpark that will do the trick!
The hero of the entire Waterpark has got to be the Kraken’s Revenge
: the first-of-its-kind watercoaster-flume ride hybrid that features a 360-degree horizontal loop and a 27-metre drop into the pool! A little birdie told us that you can reach a speed of up to 70km/h before ‘crashing’ into the pool, so remember to buckle up, ‘kay?
If you prefer something less scary, the Riptide
is one ride you could check out. This water ride will sweep you away at the steepest angles and fastest speeds, giving you an unparalleled feeling of weightlessness. You will pass through three twisters before splashing into the pool.
Honorable mentions: The Tempest
, a water ride featuring a sudden 24-foot drop, which allows for high-banking swings and zero gravity moments, and the Swinging Ship
, a favourite among theme park enthusiasts.
#4 Eat and be merry
We know what you’re thinking: how can you possibly enjoy various type of foods in a waterpark? You actually can at Desaru Coast Adventure Waterpark.
Boasting five different F&B outlets, the Waterpark has everything for everyone. The main makan attraction at the park is The Kelong Eatery
, which offers plenty of food choices that will spoil your taste buds. From local favourites such as nasi lemak
to Western dishes such as lamb shank and chicken chop, there’s no way you’re going to be leaving the Waterpark hungry.
Then, you also have the River Grill
, the park’s designated fast food outlet for those who want a quick bite and the Surf's Up Juice Bar
- a swim-up bar for some healthy fruit juices. For kids, they’ll definitely go crazy at the Octo-Bites Café
, which delivers kid-sized food portions to satisfy mini hankerings.
