Singapore: Sentosa Cable Car Line

Located in Sentosa Island in Singapore, Sentosa Cable Car Line is one of the two cable car lines of the island. It is also the newest.

The Sentosa Cable Car Line or simply Sentosa Line is an extension of the existing Mt. Faber Line.  However, these two lines are not physically connected to each other. The Sentosa Line opened on July 14, 2015. This line is 890 meters long and has 51 eight-seater cable cars of cabins.

The Sentosa Line has three stations; the Merlion Station, Imbiah Lookout Station, and the Siloso Point Station. Each station is strategically located to bring visitors closer to the different unique attractions of the island. 

Here's a list of some of the places to visit near each station:

Merlion Station

  • Sentosa Merlion
  • Madame Tussauds
Imbiah Lookout Station

  • Madame Tussauds
  • Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom
  • Tiger Skytower

Siloso Point Station

  • Siloso Beach
  • Fort Siloso
  • Fort Siloso Skywalk
  • Mega Adventure
The tickets for the Sentosa Line is cheaper than that of the Mt. Faber Line. Tickets can be bought at the booths in each station. It can also be pre-booked online. A round trip ticket costs SGD 13 for adults and SGD 8 for children.

When we say round trip, it means you go through all stations once and board down at the same station that you boarded at. You can board down any station before you complete the round trip though but of course that's a waste of money (better take the free bus ride instead.)
Let's go!

I got to try out the Sentosa Cable Car Line with my family during our 2017 Singapore -Malaysia tour.  Although the tickets were quite pricey for our budget trip, my wife and I decided to avail it because it is something that our daughter would surely love to try out. True enough it is worth it looking at my daughter's reactions.
My daughter sure did enjoy this ride.

Overall, don't ride the Sentosa Line as a mode of transportation. Treat it as one of the attractions of the island. Again if you want to move around the island, then look for the bus or tram stops. The bus and tram rides are free. Ride the cable car for the experience and the beautiful view.

Getting there:

Option 1: Ride the Sentosa Express or walk going to Sentosa Island from VivoCity. Once in the island you can ride the free buses going to the different areas of the island. You may ask the conductor what is the nearest cable car station in the stops and board down there.

Option 2: Ride the Mt. Faber Cable Car Line and board down at the Sentosa Station.  Take a 3-5 minute walk to Imbiah Lookout Station.
