Sentosa Luge and Skyride - PH

PhotoHunt theme : **Free week**

My husband and I took time off on a weekday and headed to Sentosa island. No, not to the casino although many adults were going that way. Both of us turned into kids again and went for joy rides offered on the island's attractions.

First, we took the Skyride which is an open-air cable-driven chairlift offering fantastic panoramic scenery of the city skyline and beautiful coastline.as we headed up to Imbiah Lookout to try the Luge.


I have treated many guests to rides on the Luge but this was my first time in the driver's seat. The Luge is a non-motorised, three-wheel carrier (aka self-driving car system) that careens down a steep hill on the 650-metre Jungle Trail track from the Imbiah Lookout to Siloso Beach.

Before setting off, we were instructed how to use and control the Luge which is pretty easy as the gears come in the form of handles, enabling riders to have full control and allowing them to descend the slope as gently or as fast as they prefer.


We chose the second track dubbed ‘The Dragon Trail’ because it has even tighter corners and numerous turns. Good for those who are after even more excitement. :P

Chris whizzing past me......

There were many youngsters and kids having fun on the Luge. We probably looked out of place among them as we were the oldest couple on the track and Chris was dressed in his office attire. haha....

  5. It's a good idea to spend the day on weekdays as you do not have to jostle with the crowd on weekends.

  13. That does look like a real blast. When my husband and I were in Singapore, we didn't make it to Sentosa, but next time we will. I think that the luge would probably satisfy the Mario Andretti within my soul. ..
