    Note: Prices correct as of May 2011.

  2. If you are visiting on a weekday, take the taxi after 9.30am because:
    • there's a peak hour surcharge of 35% for taxis from 7am to 9.30am, and
    • the Science Centre only opens at 10am any way.

  3. There are lots of water-based exhibits at the Science Centre's Waterworks. If you plan on getting wet (or letting your kids get wet), take a change of clothes along. Or even the swimming costumes.

  4. The Snow City gets really cold, given that you're going in from our tropical heat. Take a winter hat for the little one or for anyone liable to lose heat quickly.

  5. You'll clearly have to make all the necessary changes if you are taking children on this tour. Doing everything in this plan could be very tiring for young kids. And if you've already let them loose at the Science Centre's outdoor exhibits, it might be a strain on them if you follow up with the snow jackets, boots and snow tubes in the ice-cold environment of Snow City.
