  4. 4. Though Singaporeans were waiting a long run to enter this wonderland, the waitis actually worthwhile, as there are unexpected things to see, experience andenjoy. It was a cool Wednesday, on 3rd of April 2013 that this freshwater dreamland opened its gates to the world. People felt excited entering the long-awaitedriver park, and had got a lifetime experience for themselves to remember and toshare with their friends.Was it that interesting and innovative? And the answer went positive. Won’t youjump with the squirrel monkeys if they have a forest reserved for them, yes it’s‘the Squirrel Monkey Forest’. How would it be, when you get to explore ‘theAmazon Flooded Forest’ with lots of animals from the Amazon River shelteredunder this theme park just for you to take a glance.SquirrelSquirrelSquirrelSquirrel MonkeyMonkeyMonkeyMonkey ForestForestForestForest
