Bright Nights at Sentosa

Bright Nights at Sentosa is a series of exhilarating after-dark activities that brings the island's diverse array of offerings to life at night. Taking place from now till 01 Jan 2018, this pop up night 2 (The first run was in September this year) showcases some UV neon art installations by local artists at Imbiah Lookout. Just some flights of escalators up from the Merlion.

These neon light installations and activities sprawled across the Imbiah lookout include some gazing unicorns, house of Gnomes and Glow Yarn art. The clever optical installation partnered with other DIY glow activities like face painting are bound to send kids crazy. At least mine were crazily painting to make themselves glow!


The bright night doesn't end here, continue to follow the glow with the Merlion Magic lights at Merlion Plaza! Where the 37 meter tall mythical creature comes to life with groovy themed projections.

Timings of shows are: 7:45pm, 8:15pm, 8:45pm, 9:15pm (weekdays)
Additional shows on weekends, PH and PH eve: 9:45pm and 10:15pm


While these FREE activities happen only after sundown, we've got a perfect itinerary that starts in the evening when the weather is not irritatingly hot. Here's what we did last weekend at Sentosa:

5pm: 4D Adventureland. Where we caught three interactive rides - Journey 2, Extreme log ride and Desperados, where we all hopped on to individual motion-based saddle seats and be equipped with a motion-sensor gun for some competitive shoot-out video game action. And yes! I could get on all rides with Juboy in tow.

6pm: We moved over to Skyline Luge! Yay to fast and short queue on Sunday, and yay to two newly added trails - Expedition and Kupu Kupu. Only problem, I am not quite liking the skyride, it sends my legs to shiver. Great view nonetheless. And this round, Jare is tall enough to go on his solo ride. We did 3 rides before proceeding for dinner.

7:30pm: Dinner at Good old days.  Familiar and comforting taste of local fare. It was a convenient stop after Luge.

8.45pm: We caught the Merlion Magic Lights. A short light show with stunning animations.

9pm: We moved up to enjoy the neon light installations, took a drink by its 'bar' while kids painted themselves with glow paint.

Here's a view of before and after sunset. 

9.15pm: Hopped onto the last cable car ride and ended our night!
It was a light and easy evening at Sentosa! There is more than what you think you can explore in #thestateoffun. These neon lights give a nice wrap to the day at Sentosa!

You've got a date sorted out this holiday!
