Step 1: Walk to the nearest MRT station from your room.
When you are planning your trip to Singapore accommodation is one of the first things that you have to consider. Getting to attractions such as Adventure Cove is very easy, assuming that you are staying close to an MRT station.
Try to book a room that is only 1-2 minutes away from a station. This will ensure that you can easily walk to and from the station throughout your entire trip to Singapore. While going to Adventure Cove you will bypass traffic and avoid parking fees on Sentosa Island.

Singapore has an awesome MRT network, where you can choose from the two types of tickets below:
- Stored value cards

Read our comprehensive guide on how to buy MRT tickets in Singapore if you want all the details about each kind.
When we first figured out how to get to Adventure Cove Waterpark by MRT we used a type of stored-value card called an ‘EZLink Card’. These are popular with Singaporeans, ex-pats and visitors staying more than 3 days in the city.
Another option is buying a Singapore Tourist Pass. If you want to use the bus and MRT a lot over a short stay, highly consider getting a tourist pass.
We strongly recommend buying a Multiple Attraction Pass to use along with your Tourist Pass. With up to 52% in discounts on entrance fees to Singapore’s top attractions, it’s no surprise that over 200,000 of these have already been purchased.
With your ticket sorted, now plan on heading to HarbourFront Station. This is the first step on the way to Adventure Cove Waterpark.
Step 3: Take the MRT to HarbourFront Station
HarbourFront Station is located on the North-East Line and Circle Line. Most visitors to Adventure Cove take the North-East Line.
You should have some familiarity with how to get to HarbourFront. Refer to the train maps in each station for help. In this case, the preceding station to HarbourFront is Outram Park.
When ‘Outram Park’ is announced on your train, move closer to an exit and collect your belongings. You will be getting off at the next stop.
Also, there are signs on each train to show where you are and what the next station is on your way to Adventure Cove.
Step 4: Exit the MRT at HarbourFront and make your way to Sentosa Express Monorail Station.
You need to transfer from the MRT to the Sentosa Express to get to Adventure Cove Waterpark by MRT. The Sentosa Express is a monorail line that is not actually part of the MRT network.
Fortunately, it’s really easy to transfer between them. Simply take Exit E from HarbourFront. Then, walk to VivoCity shopping mall (MRT directions). Follow the relevant signs to the third floor of the mall.
Sentosa Express Monorail Station is located on the third floor of the mall. This is the place where you can purchase a train ticket to Adventure Cove Waterpark.
Step 5: Buy a Sentosa Express ticket to reach Resorts World Station and get on the train.
Once in the ticketing office, buy a Sentosa Express train ticket to Resorts World Station (this was called Waterfront Station before). Note: You can use your EZlink (stored value card).
Resorts World Station is the first stop on the Sentosa Express train line, so expect this to be a short ride. Get on the train, and try to stay near an exit if it’s busy!
Step 6: Get off the train at Resorts World Station and then walk to Adventure Cove Waterpark.
Alight at Resorts World Station and take all of your belongings.
It’s now time to walk from Resorts World Station to Adventure Cove Waterpark. The Waterpark is northwest of the station.
Get off the train follow the red signs to Adventure Cove.
