Let the Adventure begins!

The city life in mainland Singapore can be stifling. And if you think that Singapore is boring, think again. Sentosa might be the answer to our boredom. It isn’t just an island for tourists but a short getaway for us locals too.

After multiple visits to the island, I’ve discovered that there were so many attractions which I’ve not experienced before. This includes Mega AdventureMadame TussaudsSentosa 4D Adventureland and Tiger Sky Tower. These are fun-filled worthy attractions which have been frequented by many travelers from all over the world. Now wouldn’t it be a pity if, as a local, I didn’t get a chance to try any of these? And indeed we did, by spending an entire Saturday to explore Sentosa. Here we go!

Remember to read on to find out more about the available promotions in the month of July!

1. Mega Adventure

You shouldn’t leave this island without doing a MegaZip across Siloso Beach. It could be the most exciting activity on this island. Besides zip-lining across the beach, you could also do MegaClimb, MegaWall, MegaJump, and MegaBounce at the adventure park itself.

Getting there

Make your way to Beach Station via Sentosa Express and walk along the Siloso Beach to Mega Adventure booth. First, head over to the counter to purchase your tickets. Currently, they are offering various promotional combo packages which allow you to try out a few activities at a discounted price.

Things to Bring

From the booth itself, they will ferry you to the adventure park with a buggy. Staff will advise you to keep all your belongings in the locker because you don’t need anything and water is provided. The locker rent starts from $5. A cheaper alternative is to rent the lockers near the showering area opposite the booth itself, which only cost $2.

Can you bring your camera along?

Should you need to bring your camera, phone or wallets along, you can carry a small and light backpack with you. Small backpacks are permitted if they do not hinder your movement when you are doing the MegaClimb or MegaZip.

MegaZip only allows the use of camera devices which are strapped to your body. We carried our GoPro stick that had a wrist attachment, so it was all good. The footages we got were nothing short of amazing, and we highly recommend that you film your MegaZip experience for keepsake!

MegaClimb

GOPR0171
MegaClimb is a high-element obstacle course. There are three different of challenging rope courses of varying difficulty levels. Level 1 challenge course, which is closer to the ground, proves to be the easiest. The hardest, of course, is Level 3. Each person is given two attempts at MegaClimb.

Do not be afraid!

We planned to complete both Level 2 and Level 3 courses. We started off with Level 2 first, but we took a really long time to complete the course as there were many people ahead of us, with some having phobia at various stations. It was quite fun overcoming some of the challenges, but overall, it wasn’t too challenging. And most important of all, it is very safe. Even if you fall or miss a step, you can zip line or swing across from one end to the other. We saw a kid doing that, and we were like, ‘Woah’!

By the time we completed the Level 2 course, we were so exhausted from the heat and the long wait. Thus, we headed decided to complete our Mega adventure experience with MegaZip. The station is one level above MegaClimb. We took the stairs up and waited for our turn to MegaZip down across Siloso Beach to the beach coast, close to where Mega Adventure booth is.

The crew there were amiable and helpful. They lent us a small backpack when we needed one to keep our Go Pro while doing the MegaClimb. There’s was also a really enthusiastic and fun-loving photographer who took photos of us. The crew just made our experience so much more memorable!
Check this out! The view was just breath-taking and thrilling. You practically don’t really have to hold on to anything and swing down hands-free! I would definitely love to have a go at it again if I had a chance!

2. Madame Tussauds Singapore

DSCF9458
This is another attraction which took us by surprise. Having visited Madame Tussauds in Bangkok and New York before, I thought it wouldn’t be any different here. But I was proven wrong because it turns out that Madame Tussauds Singapore was pretty unique on its own. What made it really special was the additional boat ride which showcases Singapore’s cultural heritage and famous local landmarks. We also got to catch a short Marvel 4D film in the cinema and went through a virtual reality racing experience. It made the whole wax museum experience so much more enriching, enlivening and interactive.

DSCF9457
Currently, the tickets for Singapore residents start from $28. It is definitely cheaper to purchase your tickets online on their website.

Upon entering the wax museum, you will be greeted by a wax figurine of the Singapore Girl wearing the kebaya, which is the uniform of Singapore Airline’s stewardesses.

DSCF9462
Hop onto the boat for a short ride before entering the museum proper.

Of course, you won’t be able to ‘rub shoulders’ with our Singapore leaders and celebrities elsewhere except here at Madame Tussauds Singapore.

DSCF9476
Bring back home a wax model of your own hands as a souvenir! At the wax hand station, you will also be able to find out more about how the figurines are made.

DSCF9499
With today’s technology, the wax figurines definitely look more life-like than before! Find out how the wax figuring of our local songbird, Stefanie Sun, was being created from scratch.

Calling all Marvel superhero fans! You wouldn’t want to miss this Marvel 4D movie experience. Remember to watch your back!

The VR car racing experience was quite fun. We got to sit in a life-size model of a race car!

3. Sentosa 4D AdventureLand

DSCF9550
If you’re a thrill-seeker, Here’s another attraction for another heart-racing experience. Over here at Sentosa 4D AdventureLand, you can watch a 4D movie, play an interactive shooting game at Desperados or go for a thrilling Extreme Log Ride.

DSCF9552
We enjoyed the shooting game at Desperados the most because it was fun sitting on the galloping horse and shooting all the villains on screen. There are points given, and the top performing shooter enjoys a minute of fame as their picture of them sitting on the ‘horse’ will be captured and displayed on screen.

These are supposedly the ‘horses’ which you will be riding on.

4. Tiger Sky Tower

DSCF9568
We couldn’t believe that we’ve not been up Tiger Sky Tower before because it was so awesome. I swear that the view up here is way better than the views we get sitting on Singapore Flyer or anywhere elsewhere in Singapore.

DSCF9569
The best part is that you don’t have to walk around the tower because the cabin revolves 360 degrees. So you could literally just sit comfortably on the chair and enjoy the breathtaking view of Singapore and Sentosa as the cabin rotates.

Now check this out!

DSCF9578
The best time to take ‘a ride up into the sky’ is between 6.45pm to 7.15pm when the sun starts to set. How amazing would it be to see the city skyline of Singapore against the golden-hued sky! Do remember to take a photo with the cute Tiger plushie they have onboard.

Getting to Sentosa

DSCF9587

One of my favorite ways to get to Sentosa is via Sentosa Express. You can get your tickets at the ticketing booth located at level 3 of Vivocity. It is the most convenient way to get there from Harbourfront MRT station. You could also enter Sentosa for free via Sentosa Boardwalk (until end of 2018) if you have some time to spare.
