SkyHelix Sentosa, a new attraction by Singapore’s Mount Faber Leisure Group, will open ahead of schedule. It will be the first carbon-neutral attraction on Sentosa and Singapore’s tallest open-air panoramic ride. Tickets are now available for purchase on the company’s website.
SkyHelix Sentosa, part of the Imbiah Lookout attractions, is an exciting gondola ride that leisurely spins 35 metres above ground, revealing stunning vistas and a vertical helix-like structure. While hanging their feet in the air with a cold drink in hand, guests can enjoy unique 360° views of Sentosa and the developing Greater Southern Waterfront. The apex of the ride is 79 metres above sea level, giving it one of Sentosa’s greatest observation locations.
Mount Faber Leisure Group aspires to contribute to Singapore’s objective of becoming a top sustainable urban destination by creating distinctive, engaging, and sustainable leisure experiences centred on the city’s breathtaking vistas and natural beauty. SkyHelix Sentosa is a new addition to Singapore’s thriving tourism scene.
Buhdy Bok, Managing Director of Mount Faber Leisure Group, says, “As Singapore eyes a long-term goal recovery of its tourism sector, the opening of SkyHelix Sentosa signals a strong message of hope and optimism for the industry and the country. We believe that the panoramic views experienced on SkyHelix Sentosa will uplift and inspire diverse audiences across all age groups.”
Thien Kwee Eng, Chief Executive of Sentosa Development Corporation, adds, “SkyHelix Sentosa will be an important milestone as we emerge stronger and better from the pandemic. It illustrates how the Sentosa community has come together to push ahead into the future, despite the challenges of the past year. SkyHelix Sentosa will join a diverse pipeline of new and upcoming Sentosa experiences, including wellness experiences at Oasia Resort Sentosa, an innovative perfumery experience at Scentopia, as well as the island’s new lifestyle destination, Southside, among various other exciting highlights. We look forward to welcoming more guests to Sentosa, as we bolster our position as Asia’s leading leisure destination.”
Jean Ng, Executive Director, Attractions, Entertainment and Tourism Concept Development, Singapore Tourism Board, says, “As international travel gradually resumes, new attractions like SkyHelix Sentosa will enhance our attractiveness and signal to international travellers that Singapore is ready to welcome them. At the same time, it adds to the wide variety of family-friendly offerings that locals can enjoy. STB will continue to work with industry partners to support the development of innovative projects that add vibrancy and diversity to our tourism landscape.”
