It’s 34 degrees outside and it’s time to head out once again to Splash Island. It has been 3 summers now and Splash Island has almost become a ritual for me and the kids. Big wide open space + water = FUN, FUN! Now it is very critical that you go at the right time unless you want to swim with the entire Philippine population.
We always go on a weekday and usually just right after school ends. It is our right of passage to summer v-v-vacation!
The kids try all the water rides the height requirement permits (hehe takes after me). My boy welcomes wave after big wave at the wave pool. I never ever let him out of my sight at this point. Horror stories of wave pools are for real – drowning and hitting head on the pool wall. So take caution.
Then the favorite raft ride. It permits a group of 4 to ride a big rubber raft which will be dropped from a high winding slide — Wohoo! Age catches up on me as my heart thumps like a voodoo drum beat. I heard that they will even add heart stopping rides just for this summer.
So far, the times we have been there has been pretty slow, that is, I see water and not heads. We have had that in Malaysia, but that’s another story. First I make sure we go on a weekday. Do take that leave – it’s a must for your enjoyment. Secondly, I call to find out if there are truck loads of people coming in. Sometimes, there is a big corporate event – red light, stop, postpone.
To my dismay, they have relaxed their swimwear rules, accepting shorts and shirts on the pool. But then at least, you don’t have to buy Yaya a swimsuit. Do follow the safety rules to avoid injury and keep your eye on the kids – always. Kids and water are not exactly soul mates though kids would like to think so.
So there, go, frolick in the sun and soak in the cool, cool water …
