Official Launch of Singapore Cable Car Sky Network

[Media Invite]

14th July 2015 marks another important milestone in the history of Singapore Cable Car network as it opens a new line on Sentosa island. Over the past 40 years, millions have taken the cable car between Mount Faber, Harbour Front and Sentosa. With the new additions of three cable car stations - The Merlion, Imbiah Lookout and Siloso Point Stations, guests can connect from Merlion Plaza to Siloso Beach while enjoying the scenic aerial view of the island. 

Feeling excited and happy to be here for the official launch of the new Sentosa Line! 

Our family has been taking the cable ride frequently as we hold the Faber Licence membership for 2 years. The children are very accustom with the heights and enjoyed every single trip whenever we decided to hop on and take a loop ride between Faber Peak and Sentosa. It is double happiness for us as we now get to enjoy unlimited joyrides on both cable car lines!

As the saying goes, the more the merrier! We are delighted to meet up with SengkangBabies and The "Perfect" Father at the event.

Mr Iswaran, Minister (Prime Minister's Office) and Second Minister for Home Affairs and Trade Industry, officially launched the new Sentosa Line.

Guests now have seamless connection and easy access to the various exciting attractions in Sentosa! After alighting from Sentosa Station, it takes about 3 - 5 minutes walk to Imbiah Lookout Station. Nearby attractions include Sentosa 4D AdventureLand, Skyline Luge Sentosa and MegaZip Adventure Park.

Taking the ride towards Siloso Point Station, you might be lucky to catch the flying fox from MegaZip Adventure Park in action!

From Imbiah Lookout and towards Merlion Station, you can wave and say hi to those on the Skyline Luge ride. 

You know you are approaching Merlion Station as you get closer to the Tiger Sky Tower. 

Other attractive destinations includes Madame Tussauds Singapore, Sentosa Merlion, Universal Studios, Trick-Eye Museum and S.E.A Aquarium.
