Even though Vaccinated Travel Lanes have opened up recently, not all of us have the luxury of travelling abroad in search of new adventures. But for thrill-seekers like myself, planning fun-filled activities, which transcend the virtual boundaries of Zoom, have become more difficult (considering that we’ve exhausted all our resources). Thankfully, Mount Faber Leisure Group’s SkyHelix Sentosa is here to save our holidays!
You might be wondering- How exciting could an open-air panoramic ride be? Well, it may come as a surprise that this is no ordinary ride. SkyHelix Sentosa treats guests to a 12-minute ride in a gondola that gently rotates 35 metres above ground along a stunning vertical helix-like structure.
This next part might cause your hands to get clammy, but in a good way- While atop the gondola, you could dangle your feet in the air with a snack in hand. In case you missed it, a complimentary Haagen-Dazs ice cream mini cup will be given away with each ticket at the SkyHelix’s special opening week, which is from 15-19 December 2021. Before you start drooling over your phone, the distribution of sweet treats will be run on a first-come-first-serve basis.
If you want to experience this breathtaking adventure, gather your fastest fingers as limited tickets are still available on Mount Faber Leisure group’s website. Tickets are priced at $18 for adults and $15 for children between the ages of 4 and 12. There are happy takeaways for every guest too! Each ticket is entitled to either a standard non-alcoholic beverage or an exclusive SkyHelix Sentosa souvenir. Whichever your choice is, be sure to hold on tight to your belongings when you ascend in the air during the ride!
Resembling a chromosome, perhaps it is oddly poetic to experience this tourist attraction in such an integral landmark of Singapore’s tourism DNA. At the peak of the SkyHelix Sentosa, you would be greeted by an unparalleled 360-degree sight of Sentosa and the developing Greater Southern Waterfront. Interestingly, the ride’s peak is 79 metres above sea level, which makes it one of the highest vantage points on Sentosa.

Celebrate New Year’s Eve With a View
Instead of sticking to a New Year’s resolution, which most of us fail to achieve anyway, why not welcome 2022 with the SkyHelix Sentosa New Year’s Eve Bundle? Knowing us Singaporeans, snatching a good deal for an even greater time with our loved ones has always been a goal that has remained unchanged over the years.
Shhh! Here’s a little secret: This is exclusive to diners at Arbora Hilltop Garden & Bistro, Duck Restaurant & Bar and Cable Car Sky Dining. It is not just a sumptuous delight for your belly, but for your eyes too!
Sold exclusively at Arbora Hilltop Garden & Bistro on 31 December 2021, each bundle includes a SkyHelix Sentosa ticket and a Round Trip on the Singapore Cable Car (Mount Faber Line). Additional goodies guaranteed to paint smiles on your faces include a complimentary mocktail and an exclusive SkyHelix Sentosa souvenir.
To celebrate the New Year, the operations for the Singapore Cable Car – Mount Faber Line will also be extended. The last boarding for guests will be at 1:00AM. Operating hours for the Sentosa Line remain unchanged, where the last boarding for guests will be at 9:30PM.
By selecting a time slot between 9:30pm to 12:15am on the SkyHelix Sentosa ride, based on availability, the magnificent views on SkyHelix Sentosa would close another chapter of your life before the “happy new year’s” erupts in the air.
What a magical experience, indeed.
