It is an open secret that you can do a lot of things when you’re in Singapore. You can go have fun in Universal Studios, eat like a local at hawker centers, or stroll around the majestic Gardens by the Bay. The list of things to do and places to visit in Singapore goes on and on but there’s this one place that takes you away from the city’s hustle and bustle—well, sort of.
Say hello to the Skyride, an attraction that wants you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the natural and urban beauty of Singapore. Get a glimpse of Singapore’s city skyline and the South China sea by hopping on board the Skyride in Sentosa.
The Skyride features a four-seater chairlift that will take you around 52-feet above the ground. It is like a cable car that comes with an open cabin. In addition, your feet will hang loose as the Skyride makes its ascent. Don’t worry, the view from up there is amazing. You’ll suddenly forget that you have a fear of heights when you’re on board the Skyride. Why so? It is because of the breathtaking view that the Skyride promises to show you.
Once on top, you will have a scenic view of Singapore’s city skyline, the South China sea, and a land area full of trees. It is an experience that will calm you down since you’ll be drifting away from the typically fast-paced Singapore travel itinerary. If you’re lucky, you might also see the cockatoos, a type of bird, during your ride. If you want to be a bit romantic, the Skyride experience is also available at night. You’ll be treated to views composed of city lights while the moon and the stars shine bright like diamonds from up above.
After the Skyride experience, we highly suggest that you try the Skyline Luge, a wheeled gravity ride similar to a go-kart. The Skyline Luge starts from the top (at the end of the Skyride) and comes with a downhill track layout. You’ll be onboard a go-kart-like vehicle while you navigate your way on a downhill trail. It has four different trail or track layouts that you can choose from. In case you’re wondering, the Skyline Luge is suitable for all ages. The Luge is the best way to wake up your senses after coming from a relaxed and laid back Skyride experience.
The Skyride is an ideal attraction for individuals who want to take a step back from Singapore’s urban jungle and lifestyle. This experience allows you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the beauty of nature. The Skyride Sentosa is open daily from 10am to 9:30pm.
