The new Sentosa Line, a $78 million investment, will now allow guests to connect from Merlion Plaza to Siloso Point, on the western tip of the island. In line with SDC’s constant efforts to refresh the offerings on the island, the new line is one of several infrastructural enhancements that SDC has embarked on to enhance connectivity and accessibility on the island.
There are three cable car stations servicing the new Sentosa Line – the Merlion, Imbiah Lookout and Siloso Point Stations. Guests riding on this new line can conveniently make their way between the island’s many attractions and F&B offerings, while enjoying exceptional views over Sentosa’s tree canopy and Siloso Beach.
Guests who wish to ride on both Lines are able to buy the Cable Car Sky Pass with an option to top up for unlimited rides. Overseas guests will enjoy a bonus because the new Sentosa Line will be included in the new Standard Sky Pass with no increase from the current price of $29, hence they get double the value with the Singapore Cable Car Sky Network. In celebration of SG50, MFLG is also launching a new pricing for Singaporeans and local residents who will enjoy almost 40 per cent in savings. Furthermore, MFLG is expecting to welcome its 50 millionth guest this year.
Other than the views, the Sentosa Line gives guests convenient access to the attractions located in Merlion Plaza, Imbiah Lookout and Siloso Beach areas, including Resorts World Sentosa, The Merlion, Madame Tussauds Singapore, Images of Singapore LIVE, Skyline Luge Sentosa, Megazip Adventure Park, Wave House Sentosa, Fort Siloso and Underwater World Singapore as well as Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort and Spa.
Minister Iswaran also announced the launch of the new Fort Siloso Skywalk today, which will open to public on 15 July 2015. Towering above the treetops at 11 storeys high, this elevated bridge will lead guests on an aerial walking trail where guests will be able to walk above a canopy of treetops and chance upon the island’s many resident creatures, such as the white-bellied fishing eagle, plantain squirrel and pink-necked pigeon.
Fort Siloso, which has been a gated attraction, will permanently open its grounds for all to enjoy without charge. For those seeking in-depth knowledge of the historical site, a specially curated paid guided tour has been introduced and this will be offered free to Singaporeans and local residents from 15 July to 10 August.
