Sentosa Skyline Luge and Skyride
Jump onboard the Skyline Skyride for a stunning bird’s eye view of Sentosa Island and the city of Singapore. Once you’ve reach the top, you can enjoy an exhilarating ride back down to the bottom on the Skyline Luge. Zip down the purpose built tracks on a unique wheeled gravity cart, navigating around sharp corners and down steep drops. Pick either the Dragon Trail or the Jungle Trail or for a heart pounding experience, try venturing on the Skyline Luge at night. Children must be over six years old to ride the Luge but can ride tandem with an adult if needed.

Songs of the Sea
Set aside one evening on Sentosa Island to see the Songs of the Sea spectacular. Set on the shores of Siloso Beach, this enchanting multimedia show features a live cast, pyrotechnics, water jets, vibrant lasers and flame bursts in an open air outdoor extravaganza. This show is particularly eye catching for young children with a creative story and colourful marine characters. Consider buying your tickets prior to your visit as the popular show times tend to sell out.

iFly Singapore
Experience the impossible at iFly Singapore on Sentosa Island. This unique attraction offers guests the opportunity to go body flying in a giant wind tunnel specifically designed for indoor skydiving. Receive your shot of adrenaline without having to jump out of a plane, as you freefall to the depths of the Flight Chamber. Feel truly weightlessness as you tumble and turn inside the massive tunnel before landing safely back on the ground. Kids have to be over seven years old to fly.

Take the kids to the Marine Life Park on Sentosa Island to visit the world’s largest oceanarium. Inside the S.E.A. Aquarium, you can stand in awe at the collection of over 100,000 marine animals including sharks, rays and giant groupers.
