New rides in the sky

Look out at the Singapore skyline around the Southern coast and you will soon see futuristic spheres gliding by. These are SkyOrb Cabins, Singapore Cable Car’s latest generation of cable cars.

Aptly named as such, these spherical cabins with a cool chrome exterior are unveiled on March 15 evening as part of the attraction’s 50th anniversary celebrations this year. First rides will begin on March 20.

The new SkyOrb Cabins join the Mount Faber Line

With glass-bottomed floors, passengers are promised a clear view of their surroundings as they glide through stations at Mount Faber, HarbourFront and Sentosa island, at 100 metres above sea level. The new cabins also boast enhanced ventilation.

From afar and against a darkened sky, the SkyOrb Cabins stand out with their colour-changing lighted rings around the windows.

There are seven of such SkyOrb cabins, and they join Singapore Cable Car’s existing fleet of cabins, which now number more than 70.

Cable Car Sky Pass (unlimited rides or round trip) and Mount Faber Line (round trip) ticket holders, as well as Faber Licence members, can upgrade one way of their round trip (between Mount Faber and Sentosa cable car stations) to a SkyOrb Cabin experience for an additional S$15 (US$11.22) per person on weekdays and S$20 per person on weekends and Public Holidays. This is for a single boarding.

Tickets can be purchased at the ticketing counters at Mount Faber and Sentosa stations.
