Skywatch-Friday - Trip to Sentosa (Part 3) - Sentosa's Attractions

This is the skyride to go up to Imbiah where you can sit the Luge and comes down the slope.

The luge is a mini car which riders control the speed by pushing the handlebars back and forth. The luge ride goes down the slope. After the ride, riders can use the Skyride back to the starting point.

I dont have photos of the luge cause I dont have the courage to take the Luge...lol. You can see how a luge look like in here.

This is another favourite attraction in Sentosa. It is the Sky Tower. When up in the revolving tower you can see beautiful scenery around Sentosa Island and Singapore. I did not take this ride up but had tried a similar one in Hongkong.


Look at the long queue and you know why I decided not to take the ride...lol. It was during the chinese new year period which explains queue everywhere.

There's a lot of other attractions on Sentosa Island, I like best will be the Fort Siloso where there are tunnels there and we could play hide and seek there...lol. The last time I was there with sons and my siblings and their families, we were frightened by a bat flying in and out of the tunnels. I will take a photo of Fort Siloso the next time I visited it.
For other sky watchers, please hop over to Skywatch blog.

Thank you all for the nice comments and visit.

Dong, Sentosa is about 149 times smaller than Singapore. It is just like a huge playground. Many activities also catered to the young like you. There's a casino and Universal Studio coming up next year. Will blog about it in the next few days. :)
