Locally based thrill-seekers will soon get the chance to revisit Singapore’s resort island playground.
For those who miss the adrenalin rush of a roller-coaster ride at Universal Studios Singapore, take heart: the theme park is one of several of big-ticket attractions on Sentosa that will be welcoming local visitors starting this Wednesday. The Sentosa Development Corporation has been gradually easing restrictions since Phase 2 of Singapore’s reopening plan kicked in on Jun 19, when beaches and nature trails on the resort island reopened for residents in need of some fresh air.
From today, all areas of Fort Siloso and the Fort Siloso Skywalk are once again accessible for the public, though tours and programs have been suspended for now. Then, on July 1, Universal Studios Singapore, the S.E.A. Aquarium, and Madame Tussauds Singapore will start operating at limited capacity—great news for families craving a fun-filled weekend outing. Resorts World Sentosa’s casino is also slated to reopen this Wednesday for existing Genting Rewards members and annual levy holders.
Dining outlets across the island will progressively resume operations over the coming weeks. Those already open include bar and restaurant Coastes at Siloso Beach, Sentosa Boardwalk’s Bones ‘n’ Barrels (where popular menu items are tandoori chicken and lamb kebabs), and the Mediterranean and Spanish venue FOC Sentosa on Palawan Beach.
All visitors to Sentosa will have to adhere to physical-distancing protocols, maintaining at least one meter between each other. In cases where that is not possible, the rule must be observed between groups, which are limited to a maximum of five people. No mixing between groups will be allowed. Face masks are required at all times except while eating, drinking, taking medication, or engaging in strenuous exercise. As an extra precaution, everyone should use the SafeEntry contact tracing app to check in and out of all attractions on the island, including beaches and nature trails.
