The brand-new ride is opening ahead of schedule on December 15, just in time for the year-end holidays.
Singapore residents with a head for heights will soon get to try out what’s billed as the highest open-air panoramic ride in the city and the first carbon-neutral attraction on Sentosa Island. Designed and built by French company Aerophile, SkyHelix Sentosa is the latest project from Mount Faber Leisure Group, the operator behind attractions like the Singapore Cable Car and Mount Faber Peak, as well as several associated restaurants and cafés. The eye-catching structure is located at Imbiah Lookout, a short stroll from the Singapore Cable Car’s Sentosa station, and is primed to welcome the public on December 15.
Visitors will be seated in an open-air gondola, which gradually rotates as it ascends 35 meters off the ground to a height of 79 meters above sea level, making SkyHelix Sentosa one of the highest vantage points on the island. Each ride lasts approximately 12 minutes, including 10 minutes rotating at the peak. During the ascent, rotation, and descent, riders can enjoy 360-degree views of Sentosa, the Keppel Bay area, and Singapore’s ever-evolving Southern Waterfront with a cool drink in hand as their feet dangle in the air. After sundown, the attraction will be illuminated by LED lights.
Guests must be fully vaccinated and meet a minimum height requirement of 1.05 meters to access SkyHelix Sentosa. An attraction host will accompany each group to ensure safety protocols are followed, while introducing the surrounding views and key landmarks as the gondola makes its ascent.
Tickets for SkyHelix Sentosa are priced at S$18 (about US$13) for adults and S$15 (US$11) for children between the ages of four and 12. Each ticket will be bundled with a choice of one standard non-alcoholic beverage or a SkyHelix Sentosa souvenir.
