Two weeks back after Alicia’s art class, she requested to go for a cable car ride. I’m not sure why she was so adamant about going that afternoon, but we ended up going anyway. With the added feature of the kids’ favourite angry birds, the angry bird cable car ride from Mt Faber to Sentosa and back was quite a highlight for my children, especially Alicia! It was Alex’s first cable car ride so he had a lot to deal with so I think angry birds weren’t really that important to him. 🙂 After we bought our cable car ride tickets at Mt Faber’s Jewel Box, we headed upstairs and got a complimentary Angry Birds fruit punch each:
After our drink, we proceeded to the floor for boarding the cable cars. But wait, there are cute features here which we just had to check out before take the cable car ride. Posing with the angry birds cable car: It’s the world’s first Angry bird cable car ride! How could we not take a photo here?:
And while the girls were busy taking photos, here’s what the boys were doing:
And we finally prepare to board the Angry Birds cable car:
Not only is the exterior of the Angry Birds cable car decorated with the cute angry birds, the interior does not disappoint with angry birds themed seats:
and even a BIG plush angry bird to keep you company through your journey!:
And not to mention a small mounted tv which plays the angry bird theme song for you to hum to:
And to complete the entire Angry Birds Cable Car ride experience, we received angry bird masks for each ticket we bought:
Alicia trying to engage her brother in conversation:
but little boy is still more concerned that he’s in an unknown place, staring down at very tiny things… and he thought he was small!:
Here are some of the lovely views of Singapore from the cable car ride:
After we reached Sentosa, we went to take a look at the exhibits at the Cable Car museum:
Fans of lego? Here’s a cable car made out of lego!:
Check out the fares back then!:
Just a fraction of what we pay now! But look at how beautifully adorned our cable cars are now – we have really made lots of improvement over these few decades, but I wish we could make cable car rides more affordable for Singaporeans!
We board another Angry Birds cable car and head back and it’s a green angry bird we have for company this time!:
Little boy strikes a pose while he wonders when’s his turn to play with the green plush bird? 😛
Little boy decides that he shall strike a conversation with the pigs instead while waiting!:
And it’s time to say goodbye! Hugging the angry bird for the last time:
The themed Angry Birds Cable car ride was really refreshing with all the elements well thought of, from the complimentary drink served in an Angry birds cup to plush toys and the catchy tune played during the ride.
The Angry Birds Cable car ride tickets are priced at $29 (Adult) and $18 (Kids) for the Round trip and it’s available till Dec 2012.
