Want more things to do for teenagers? Are they complaining they’ve run out of fun ways to pass the time? Here are some cool activities and outdoor things to do in Singapore for teenagers – to keep them occupied or out of your hair!
#1 A trampoline park in Singapore for teens
Singapore’s massive indoor trampoline park BOUNCE has a wide variety of trampoline zones to explore such as the Free Jump Arena, Dodgeball, Slam Dunk, Big Bag and Performance Area. There’s also the X-Park (or “ninja warrior obstacle course”!), which combines elements of climbing, jumping and free-running, before you zip along on the aerial runway to the finish line. Additionally, if you’re looking for a venue to throw a birthday party, the park offers a great package. This involves a two-hour party with plenty of freestyle activities for teenagers showcasing the best areas of BOUNCE, a dedicated party host and a fab goodie bag.
#2 Treetop thrills with teenagers
Calling adrenaline junkies! If heights are your thing, check out Singapore’s first and only treetop obstacle, Forest Adventure, at Bedok Reservoir. Here you’ll find a total of 69 crossings featuring wobbly bridges, nets, balancing beams and a stomach-dropping leap of faith. There are also six exhilarating zip lines across three age-appropriate rope courses, so your kids can have a blast swinging through the treetops and finding plenty of thrills.
#3 Activities for teenagers on Sentosa
You won’t need a driver’s licence for the Skyline Luge on Sentosa! Instead, you just allow gravity to pull the Luge downhill as it descends from the top of Mount Imbiah to Siloso Beach on the purpose-built tracks. Riders have full control over the speed of their Luge as they race down on one of four trails: the Dragon, Jungle, Kupu Kupu and Expedition Trails. Each track also has specially designed features for extra fun, such as hairpin corners, tunnels and downhill slopes.
Before you can go down, you need to get up! As you take the upward journey in the Skyride chairlift, you’ll get to take in the surrounding nature of Sentosa, as well as a panoramic view of the Singapore skyline and the South China Sea.

#4 Virtual worlds for teens to explore
VR has been a big hit recently, but as exciting as getting your hands on one of these games can be, owning a really good headset is expensive. Thankfully, there are places like Zero Latency and V-Room in Singapore for teens who want to experience whats it’s like to be immersed in a virtual reality world. And without forking out big bucks for the technology!
#5 Go-karting for aspiring rev-heads
Everyone looks forward to driving their first car, so why not get a head start? If that sounds ideal for your teenagers, happy days are here! Singapore has several karting arenas, including the KF1 Karting Circuit and The Karting Arena, where racers of different ages can tackle fun, fast circuits. This is one of those fantastic things to do in Singapore for teenagers who are fans of four wheels – or who want to feel the rush of being an F1 driver!

The cinema is always a top option for spending a rainy day with friends or family. If you’re a teenager on school holidays, you can choose pretty much any time – sessions start nice and early and go until late at night. There are plenty of cinemas in Singapore, including Golden Village and Shaw Theatres, which have locations in multiple neighbourhoods, with show timings to suit anyone.

#9 Bowling activities for teenagers
An afternoon of ten-pin bowling is another great way for young people to spend time with friends, as they compete for strikes and spares. There are some excellent bowling alleys in Singapore, but we suggest heading over to K Bowling Club at 313 Somerset. This full-time cosmic alley is packed with cool lights, food and drinks, and good music, perfect for a fun day for teens.
#10 Rock climbing courses in Singapore
Indoor rock climbing is as popular as ever, and a fun way to spend a Saturday morning or Sunday afternoon. All you need is one other person with you to have a great time – so it’s an excellent choice for small groups of teenagers. At Climb Central in Kallang Wave Mall, you can choose to top rope, lead climb or use the auto-belays. Beginners are more than welcome!
#11 Cool activities for teenagers that love ice skating
If you or your teen is missing cold weather, a session of ice skating at The Rink will scratch the itch! You can skate in a competition-grade rink – even as a beginner! It also offers classes for both newcomers and seasoned skaters, with private rink bookings for celebrations, and spectator seating during performances. Bring some warm gloves…
