Standing at 40m tall at the Imbiah Lookout Zone, the SkyHelix Sentosa is Singapore’s highest open-air panoramic ride and will be the first carbon-neutral attraction to open on Sentosa this Dec 15.

Previously set to open in early 2022, the attraction is launching ahead of schedule just in time for the school holidays and year-end celebrations, as well as to boost local tourism as Singapore continues to establish more Vaccinated Travel Lanes (VTL) with other countries.

As the gondola ride gently rotates 35m above the ground around the vertical helix-like structure, guests can enjoy a breathtaking 360° view of Sentosa and the developing Greater Southern Waterfront with a drink in their hands and feet dangling in the air from one of the highest vantage points on Sentosa.


The attraction is within a stone’s throw away from the Singapore Cable Car’s Sentosa station.


Adult tickets can be purchased for $18 and tickets for children aged four to 12 can be purchased for $15 each on Mount Faber Leisure’s website

All tickets will come with a choice of one standard non-alcoholic beverage, either a soft drink or a slushie, or an exclusive SkyHelix Sentosa souvenir. Alcoholic beverages and snacks will be subjected to additional charges.

For the health and safety of visitors, the SkyHelix Sentosa will only be available for vaccinated guests and accompanying children aged 12 and under. 

Prevailing Safe Management Measures (SMM) including group size limits and rigorous sanitisation regimes will be in place.

Additionally, guests under 1.05m in height will not be permitted to enter the ride, and guests between 1.05m to 1.2m in height or under 12 years of age must be accompanied by a supervising adult.
