Three new attractions will open in Singapore later this year, the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) announced at the annual Tourism Industry Conference on Wednesday (Apr 7).

The launch aims to enhance Singapore’s attractiveness and help support the tourism industry which was previously affected by the pandemic, said STB chief executive Keith Tan.

Plans to test new attraction concepts and refresh existing tourism precincts such as the Orchard Road shopping belt were also announced.

“These projects are a welcome breath of fresh air amongst all the negativity and bad news in the last year,” said Mr Tan, who added that it was important Singapore focuses on recovering its tourism industry and preparing for the future.

Here are the three new attractions you can look forward to from 2021.

1. Museum of Ice Cream

The Instagrammable Museum of Ice Cream is set to open its first location outside of the United States right in Singapore’s Dempsey area.

The multi-sensory installation is expected to feature similar attractions to its American establishment and will also feature the popular rainbow sprinkle pool.

The attraction, which will be located next to the current GX-5 Extreme Swing ride, will catapult riders up 70m in the air at a speed of almost 160kmh.

3. SkyHelix Sentosa

If thrilling rides are not up your alley, you can look forward to enjoying a panoramic view of Sentosa and the Southern Waterfront area instead at SkyHelix Sentosa.
