Sentosa is all about FUN. Nicknamed the “State of Fun”, it’s a popular island resort that draws in over 20 million guests annually. If you’re visiting Singapore with kids, then I’m guessing it’s already on your itinerary.
We don’t have any children (other than each other 😆 ) but we decided to spend a few hours here anyway just to see what this island of fun had to offer.
1. Skyline Luge
This is arguably one of Sentosa’s most popular attractions and with good reason. It’s so much fun! You ride a lift to the top of the hill then drive back down on a gravity-powered street luge car. There are 2 tracks — each over 600 meters long — and it takes about 5-10 minutes to get to the bottom. The ride does feel a little short but it’s still super fun.
Follow this link for more information on the Skyline Luge.
Cost: SGD 18 (1 ride) / SGD 25 (3 rides) / SGD 38 (5 rides) / SGD 41 (7 rides)
2. Trick Eye Museum
This place had us cracking up. Trick Eye Museum is a chain of optical illusion museums that originated from Korea. It features 3D paintings and installations that you can interact with to create hilarious and often mind-bending optical illusions. If you enjoy taking pictures and posting them on social media, then you’ll have a blast here.
Check out my post on Trick Eye Museum for more pictures and information.
Admission: Adults – SGD 25 / Children (4-12) – SGD 20
3. S.E.A. Aquarium
S.E.A. Aquarium is awesome. It’s one of the biggest and best aquariums we’ve been to thus far. It features 49 habitats housing over 100,000 marine animals. There are many interesting things to see here but some of our favorites include the moray eel tank and jellyfish exhibits. They’re trippy man.

Admission: Adults – SGD 32 / Children (4-12) – SGD 22
4. Segway Fun Ride
Neither Ren nor I had ever been on a Segway before so we wanted to try it. It was super fun! Problem was, this ride was basically just an intro to Segway riding so it was too short. We went up the road then back down again. That was it. The whole thing lasted about 10 minutes so if you’d like more time, then go for the Segway Eco Adventure ride. It’ll last 30 or 60 minutes and will take you to one or all of Sentosa’s beaches.

Cost: SGD 17 (250 meters) / SGD 21 (500 meters) / SGD 25 (800 meters)

Sentosa is an entire island of attractions so the 4 listed here are just a fraction of what you’ll find there. There are 4D theaters, a butterfly sanctuary, action parks, watersport facilities, golf courses, beaches, and plenty of restaurants and hotels. Universal Studios Singapore is here as well. If you have kids, then you can easily spend an entire day (or two) here.
You can save on the fees for all these activities by purchasing a Sentosa FUN Pass. For just SGD 44.90, the PLAY 3 pass gives you access to 3 out of 20 Sentosa attractions. You can also get a PLAY 5 pass for SGD 59.90 and a PLAY 20 pass for SGD 81.90. Some attractions like Universal Studios aren’t included but most are. You can follow this link for more information on the Sentosa FUN Pass.
If for some reason you don’t want to get a Sentosa FUN Pass, then you can save on the cost by purchasing advanced tickets from Klook. Please find below Klook prices for each of the 4 attractions listed on this post. You can click on the attraction’s name to purchase tickets from their website.
