SkyHelix Sentosa: An open-air panoramic ride

With Singapore announcing that it will allow quarantine-free travel for travellers from India from November 29, the announcement by Mount Faber Leisure Group was timely for Indian travel fraternity feels Chandragupta Amritkar.

Singapore-based lifestyle brand and leading operators of a suite of leisure and lifestyle Mount Faber Leisure Group recently announced a new attraction, SkyHelix Sentosa that is scheduled to open on 15 December 2021. It is expected to be Singapore’s highest open-air panoramic ride and will be the first carbon-neutral attraction on Sentosa.

Located within the collection of attractions at Imbiah Lookout, SkyHelix Sentosa is an unforgettable gondola ride that reveals breath-taking views as it gently rotates 35 metres above ground along a vertical helix-like structure. Guests will enjoy unparalleled 360° sights of Sentosa. The ride’s apex is 79 metres above sea level, making it one of the highest vantage points on Sentosa.

Mr. Buhdy Bok, MD, 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.”

Just a short stroll from the Singapore Cable Car’s Sentosa station, SkyHelix Sentosa will be a captivating new addition to Sentosa’s compelling leisure experiences. For each “flight”, guests will be seated in an open-air gondola for a 12-minute ride, which includes 10 minutes at the peak, during which the gondola will slowly rotate. SkyHelix Sentosa’s energy-efficient design utilises minimal electricity for its operations.

“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,” said Ms. Thien Kwee Eng, Chief Executive of Sentosa Development Corporation.

Tickets for SkyHelix Sentosa are priced at $18 for adults and $15 for children between the ages of four and 12. Each ticket will be bundled with a choice of one standard non-alcoholic beverage or an exclusive SkyHelix Sentosa souvenir.
