The Luge Skyline adventure was one of my highlights in June. And here’s the post, finally. I’ve kept you waiting. Sorry. But better late than never! 😀 In case you’re wondering why you’re seeing me less online, here’s why.
We were invited to check out the new facade and streamlined facilities at Skyline Luge Sentosa. In case you don’t already know about this attraction in Sentosa (I think that’s highly impossible!) which has been in operation for the past 9 years, the Skyline Luge, the first of its kind in Southeast Asia, features both a 320-metre chairlift (Skyride) as well as a 3-wheeled gravity ride (better known as the Luge Ride) that promises a definite adrenaline rush .
I hardly take selfies so it was super challenging to muster enough courage to stick out my arm, steady the phone and press the capture button, all these while being a few hundred metres in the air.
So what has improved? For a start, there are eight more ticketing counters to the initial line-up of four to better service high volumes of customer traffic (have you seen the queue on weekends in the past?? Yeah, so this is definitely a good move!) Besides that, four more photo counters have been added (to make a total of eight). The seating area and sheltered space have been increased by 500% with this new facelift to improve comfort.
Most importantly, luge fans can revel in the upgraded Jungle track with RGB LED lighting fixtures!
And you can catch a glimpse of the light display on the way up on the skyride if you are there at dusk or at night:
You can take your pick from the 688-metre Dragon Trail or the 628-metre Jungle Trail that are specially designed with hairpin corners, long straights and exciting slopes, but the Jungle Trail is the one that is fitted more with the special lighting.
And by the way, I really do recommend going at/ near dusk. More cooling and the view is amazing.
It is true that “Once is Never Enough”. We went a total of 12 times, spread across two evenings. It’s a good workout for the arms, if I may add.
We, unfortunately, do not have any photos of us on the luge as the main area where you get on the luge does not allow photo-taking and we didn’t want to put the staff on a spot to help us take a photo in case others who aren’t there for the media review insist they do the same. Also, I strongly discourage you from stopping on the luge track to take photos – that can be very dangerous. Driving around a sharp bend only to find two stationery luges in the middle of the track? That kinda has danger written all over. If you really must have a picture, buy one ya?
Otherwise, just take photos of yourselves with helmets. LOL. Y’know, like what we always do when we go for the ride. Safety first, folks! And be considerate! 🙂
P.S. It was my boy’s first time on the luge! Both of them loved it!
