NEW ATTRACTIONS TO HELP POST-COVID REVIVAL IN SINGAPORE
An ice-cream museum, a thrill ride and a rotating panoramic platform on Sentosa Island are the new attractions to open their doors in 2021/2022 in Singapore.
Despite the Covid pandemic, Singapore continues to plan its tourism future. Recently, tourism authorities unveiled plans for new attractions which would contribute to enhance Singapore’s appeal. Keith Tan, Chief executive of the Singapore Tourism Board insists that “these projects are a welcome breath of fresh air amongst all the negativity and bad news in the last year.”
Construction has already started for the three new Singapore attractions. The Museum of Ice Cream will be unique in Asia and will offer a journey through multi-sensory installations telling dedicated to ice-cream. The attraction will have 14 sections including a pink and yellow jungle with 10,000 bananas and a giant sprinkle pool.
Along Clark Quay in Singapore city centre, “Slingshot” will be Asia’s highest thrill ride, catapulting riders to almost 70m into the air at a speed of 160km/hour.
Sentosa Island will see the arrival of SkyHelix Sentosa. The new attraction will allow people to “enjoy a drink in an open-air panoramic attraction that rotates and ascends 35m above ground level to reveal 360-degree views of Singapore’s coast.”
