Skyline Luge Sentosa Trails

The Sentosa Luge is a wheeled ride that allows riders to hurtle down special tracks with the help of gravity. There are 4 trails on can embark on at Sentosa Luge:

The Dragon Trail

This 688m long trail is filled with twists, hairpin turns, and bends, and is the ultimate challenge for all Lugers. If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, this is the trail for you!

The Jungle Trail

The Jungle Trail is 628m long, and though it doesn’t have as many twists and turns as the Dragon Trail, it does allow you to go faster on the straighter parts of the track. If you’re one for fast and exciting rides, pick this trail!

The Expedition Trail

This trail was opened in 2017 and is the longest one running for 658m. It is for the experienced thrill seekers and promises more hairpin corners, exhilarating tunnels and longer slopes running through Sentosa's lush rainforests!

Kupu Kupu Trail

Kupu Kupu translates to butterfly in Malay and is a 638m long trail which was launched in 2017 too. It takes a mystical route through the magical forests of Sentosa. This one is better suited for beginners as it is a leisure ride granting a graceful yet beautiful experience.

Personally, I prefer the Dragon Trail – racing along the hairpin bends that fast gives me chills!

Night Luge

Skyline Luge Sentosa Review

We went on a thursday afternoon, the queue was okay, not too long. We went again on friday night and the queue was surprisingly short, we queued for less than 10 mins and we were on the skyline, and another 10 mins and we were riding the luge. We passed by on a saturday afternoon and the queue has reached the main road. We did three rounds and it was so fun. Even better if the routes are longer. Be careful when driving to the left or right as there are others speeding out of nowhere.

Livelife1234, TripAdvisor, June 2018

Very easy to control, and your safety really depends on how reckless you are. You start at a higher level and you ride on a downward curving slope. Be careful not to pull on your brakes too hard, you might put your luge to a full stop, necessitating having to put one leg out on the track to get your luge moving again. The skyline chair lift brings you back to the top. Then you start over. Or you can exit down at the beach area. Of course every time you ride either, there’s a fee. When alighting from the skyline, jump off and make a quick exit to the right to keep yourself from getting run over by your own chair.
