The much anticipated June holidays has finally arrived, and Singapore’s Biggest BayFest returns for the sixth time this year, featuring the first inflatable gruelling water obstacle course.
Local favourite heartthrob, Nathan Hartono, was also spotted performing live at the DBS Marina Regatta on the evening of June 2.
After the live performance, Nathan and fitness enthusiast, Jaime Teo, proceeded to the Battle Bay where they had a face off with their own teams.
Jaime and her team went first followed by Nathan’s team. Though the water course looks hard, it does not seem to faze the fitness enthusiast. Jaime and her team emerge victorious with a time of 3:47:19 breaking the record of the day for Battle Bay!
The Battle Bay is Singapore’s first inflatable water obstacle course that has nine different obstacles, almost similar to the popular water course game show “Wipe Out”.
Head down to the DBS Marina Regatta this weekend to try the inflatable water obstacle course at the Battle Bay. Individual participants can sign on on the spot for a first come first serve basis at $10 per try, and $5 per try for students. However, if you want to try the battle bay without paying, the Battle Bay will be open to public for free play on the June 3 and June 4.
Date: 3 & 4 June
Time: 9pm – 10pm (June 3), 6.15pm – 10pm (June 4)
