Skyride

Sentosa Luge is a luge located in Sentosa, Singapore. It opened in the second half of 2005. The luge is situated on the Imbiah Lookout cluster opposite the Tiger Sky Tower, and has a length of 650 metres. The luge is a self-driving car system in which riders control the speed by pushing a pair of handlebars back and forth. The luge ride goes downhill, relying on gravitational pull to move. After the ride, the Skyride using chairlifts brings riders, luge carts, and the helmets back to the starting point. The Skyride is similar to a ski lift.

Incidents[edit]

On 19 May 2008, two children, aged nine and six, fell as they were getting off the moving chairlift and were trapped in the small space between the chairlift and concrete ground. The chairlift dragged them for half a metre before they were pulled out by a friend. The children suffered cuts and bruises.[1]
