What a better way to celebrate my birthday than trying something for the first time at Singapore's must-visit destination for tourists, the premier island resort getaway known as Sentosa.
Sentosa is a 500-hectare island with a 3.2-kilometre stretch of white sand beach and a unique blend of leisure and recreational facilities. The island can be accessed by cable car, bus, taxi or car and open for 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Sentosa offers a variety of experiences for all ages. For me though, Luge ride (which is said to be the first ever luge in Southeast Asia), is the best activity there. It’s a small bike which is partly go-cart, partly-toboggan that you can drive down the hill as leisurely or exciting as you please. It is my kind of thing!
But since Luge ride ticket is in set with Sky ride ticket, I can only do the luge after doing the sky ride.
Skyride is very similar to cable car ride, except that you are sitting on an open – air bench and takes you more than 100 feet above the ground to drop at the starting point of Luge ride! Wow, that’s scary! My knees were shaking just at the thought of doing it! But with my friends encouragement (pushing, that is!!) and the assurance I got from a five-year old who took the skyride with only his older brother as a companion, I found myself to another journey to gutsiness – my first ever Skyride!
Getting ready for the Sky Ride
Up in the Sky. I wasn't moving or breathing!
Enjoying the Skyride!
It was an amazing experience! Not only I got a great view of the island but I also felt good about myself for overcoming fear and stretching my physical limit. I felt a great sense of freedom trying things for the heck of it!
