5 of Singapore’s must-try rides and must-visit places for thrill seekers
From indoor skydiving to paintball.
Although Singapore doesn’t quite have the land mass for actual skydiving, the next best thing would definitely be iFly Singapore’s indoor skydiving simulator. In addition to a flying height of 17.22 meters (the height of a five-story building), the enclosed wind tunnel also has an acrylic glass wall, allowing for stunning views of Siloso Beach and the South China Sea.

This giant flying fox suspends riders a startling 75 meters above ground and sends them flying across Sentosa at a speed of 60km/h. Starting at the peak of Imbiah Hill, the zipline course runs above the island’s jungle canopies, the beach and the sea, coming to a stop at Siloso Beach.

Not for the faint-hearted— board the Skyride chairlift, which takes you beyond the canopy of trees on a 1.2km hillside with a bird’s eye view of the Sentosa coastline. Upon reaching the top, you can opt to whizz downhill via the luge, a ride which allows you to control your speed via gravity-controlled mechanisms on a luge track.
