Island getaways mean a whole different thing when you’re in the midst of a pandemic. That Bintan weekend with the family may not be happening soon, but hey, there’s still Sentosa. And the folks at Sentosa are serious about wooing families to the island, okay? From now until March 31, each child aged 12 and below get free entry with every paying adult at seven attractions on the island. This translates into savings of anything from $15 to $100.
[Update, Mar 10] You can now use SingapoRediscovers Vouchers on these deals when you purchase from the Sentosa Online Store (https://store.sentosa.com.sg/).
Even if you’re planning to head to Sentosa without children in tow, you still can save on a couple of things on your ‘overseas’ jaunt. Admission to Sentosa is free until March 31, and there’s $4 off your Grab ride to Sentosa with the promo code ‘SentosaFun’ (limited number of redemptions).
These are the 7 attractions in Sentosa where kids get free entry:
#1: Gogreen Segway Eco Adventure
Why walk when you can cycle or Segway along the beaches of Sentosa? Opt for either a one-hour Sentosa Cycling Bike Rental or a 500m-long Segway fun ride along Siloso and/or Palawan beach.
Tickets: $21 for adults and free entry for one child (worth $15) for the bike rental; $21 for adults and free entry for one child (worth $21) for the Segway ride.
#2: HeadRock VR
The HeadRock VR Adventure 5 package lets you choose any five games or ride available at this virtual reality theme park. However, this offer is only available on weekends and public holidays, so plan your trip well.
Tickets: $50 for adults and free entry for one child (worth $40)
#3: iFly Singapore
It’s not a holiday (or should we say, Singapoliday) until you do something out of the ordinary… like indoor skydiving, perhaps? Kids have to be at least seven years old to have a go at iFly. The Kids Play Free promo only applies to the iFly Teaser package, and is valid for all timings.
Tickets: $66 for adults and free entry for one child (worth $66)
#4: Madame Tussauds Singapore
For one ticket, you get five experiences: visit Madame Tussauds Singapore, Marvel 4D Experience, Images of Singapore, Spirit of Singapore Boat Ride, get the Ultimate Film Star Experience and one digital photo as a souvenir.
Tickets: $30 for adults, plus free entry for one child (worth $18)
#5: Singapore Cable Car
The closest you’ll get to flying during these times. A Singapore Cable Car Sky Pass lets you ride on both the Mount Faber and Sentosa lines.
Tickets: $35 for adults and free entry for one child (worth $25)
#6: SkyPark by AJ Hackett Sentosa
Another one for adrenaline junkies. Go on the AJ Hackett Giant Swing alone or up to two pals and get a bird’s eye view of Siloso Beach.
Tickets: $59 for adults with free entry for one child (worth $59)
#7: Royal Albatross
Say ahoy to breakfast or dinner aboard the Royal Albatross, touted to be the only traditionally-rigged tallship in Singapore and the region. Enjoy brekkie on a one-and-a-half-hour Rediscovery Breakfast Cruise that includes other activities as well. Or savour a sunset sail dinner cruise or a nighttime city lights dinner cruise — both are two-and-a-half-hours-long and include a welcome drink and a three-course dinner.
Tickets: $133.75 for adults for breakfast and free entry for one child (worth $101.65); $208.65 for adults for sunset sail and city lights dinner cruises with free entry for one child (worth $101.65)
