Embark on a boat adventure of the amazing Amazon River with your whole family. Let this ride take you down the South American wonder and into the mysterious Amazon wilderness.

In this immersive sensorial experience, be enthralled by the sights and sounds of over 30 wildlife species that hail from one of the most diverse rainforest habitats of the world.

This unforgettable wet and wild journey will give you a truly unique perspective on life along the mighty river.

Visitors can plunge into a thematic exploration at the mysterious rainforest of the Amazon and come face-to-face with close to 30 animal species living on the edges of the Amazon River.

For the first time in Singapore, visitors will see the red-backed bearded saki monkey, collared peccary, and red howler monkey. Other animals along the ride include the capybara (world’s biggest rodent), giant anteater (world’s largest anteater), and jaguar (South America’s biggest wild cat).

The slow boat ride, which lasts between 12 to 15 minutes, is the final attraction to open at River Safari, Singapore’s newest family lifestyle destination. The 483m-long ride is designed to simulate an open-top boat voyage down the Amazon River featuring land and arboreal animals in naturalistic habitats with lush vegetation.

Visitors will see various species of monkeys swinging through tree tops, brightly-coloured birds fluttering in a flight aviary, and be transported into a dark cave which is home to South America’s largest wild cat – the jaguar.

The Amazon River Quest is part of the park’s Wild Amazonia zone which showcases the rich biodiversity in the Amazon basin. The two other habitats in this zone are the Squirrel Monkey Forest, a walk-through exhibit home to over 40 free-ranging squirrel monkeys, and the Amazon Flooded Forest which simulates the annual flooding of the Amazon rainforest with manatees and arapaimas swimming amongst giant trees.

Visitors can embark on the Amazon River Quest from 10.00am to 5.00pm. Boat ride safety regulations apply.

Tickets will continue to be priced at a discounted rate of S$25 (adult), S$16 (child between 3-12 years) and $12.50 (local senior citizens 60 years and above). Park admission will eventually be priced at S$35 (adult), S$23 (child between 3-12 years), and $17.50 (local senior citizens 60 years and above).

Other terms and conditions apply.
