Sentosa 4D magix
Sentosa 4D magix is located at Imbiah lookout. There was a long queue and we waited there for nearly 30 minutes. The story was about the hilarious misadventures of captain lucky and his band of pirates in search of hidden treasures. We experienced every shake and bump, with all new wind gusts, water sprays and spooky lights and sounds through out the movie.That was really a thrilling experience for us.
Sentosa cine blast ( Extreme log ride)
It is the singapore first 4- dimensional stimulation ride. We experienced a roller coast ride without actuall having to ride on it. The show starts with the harvesting of super-trees, environmental wonders grown in a ‘super world ‘ called Himalamazon. We felt every thrilling twist, turn, spills, dip and dive while watching this animated adventure.It was a stomach -churning and gripping journey through deep caves and crocodile -infested pool for 15 minutes.
Tiger sky tower
After the mind blowing experience in the Sentosa cine blast we moved to Asia’s tallest observatory tower- Tiger sky tower.Standing at 131 meters above the sea level we got a great panoramic view of surrounding singapore skyline, coast of Indonesia and part of Malaysia. We were really impressed by the 7 minutes scenic sights from the tower.
Next we moved to Skyline luge which offers a truly unique outdoor experience.It was just like go-carting .we had a fun ride from hilltop to the beach .you can go back to the top of hill through skyline. The ride was very slow and smooth and the view was amazing. We really enjoyed the panoramic view of the beautiful coastal line.
Songs of the sea
we stayed back for the 9.40pm show since the earlier two ,one at 7.40pm and the other at 8.40pm was sold out. It was 45 minutes of unbelievable entertainment with water jets and lasers synchornised with lively music and live chat. The theme goes like this ,a man named Lee along with his friends was trying to wake up the angel in the sea with their song.The show is set out at the beach with the beautiful landscape as background, sprinkling fountains of water and creating life like images on it by laser.The effects of smoke, lights, water and fire were fantastic. It was worth for the every penny that we paid for this show. Try to sit at the centre to enjoy the full effects of the spectacular show. If you are going to Singapore don’t miss this award winning show. Hatsoff to the creator of this grand creativity. Songs of the sea was the perfect end to our great afternoon in sentosa. Coming back to home once again we viewed songs of sea in the youtube.
