It is not "the end of the world", this show combining music, water jets and laser lights, but after a day strolling in the island to visit its several attractions, it is a relaxing end of the day, sitting for half an hour and watching this free event, before returning to mainland.
A Must-Visit attraction on Sentosa. Replacing the old Musical Fountain and Kiki the monkey is the World’s first water show set in the sea, Songs of the Sea and Oscar the lion fish. The new show is even better than Musical Fountain. A combination of technology, imaging and live cast. It is so much more interactive with the live cast so engaging in close proximity, makes me feel like I’m in the show. The kelong (Malay village) setting resembles original Asian fishing village huts. The dramatic effects, water jets, pyrotechnics, lasers, fire and music makes the whole show mesmerizing. A visual feast that is not to be missed!
This is Sentosa's newest addition. It is better than the previous show but it is no longer free. You have to pay $6 to catch a glimpse of it. Ouch! That hurts. However, it is worthwhile. With water jets, songs and dance, fire balls and fireworks display, it is difficult to refuse a night on the wooden benches in the Palawan Beach. On weekends and public holidays, you have to go to the ticketing booth early in order to get a ticket as it is always full house. Take a bus, car, tram or rail to the Beach Station and the ticketing booth is clearly visible from there.
The charmed by the sound, light and laser extravaganza at the Musical Fountain.
Day shows start at 5pm and 5.30pm. (no light and laser)
Magical Sentosaa Night Display starts at 7.40 pm and 8.40 pm daily.
Admission is free. Be there at least 30 mins before show time to get really good seats.
The last day of the Musical Fountain will be 26 March 2007. It will be replaced by Song of the Sea at $6 per adult. If you wish to catch the show for free, do camp around at the Beach Station or at the Oscar Restaurant.
I like this best in Sentosa. A mix of laser, water, fire and music to keep your eyes wide open for 30mins. You must go to the night shows. If you plan to go to the 7:40pm show, you must be there before 7pm as they will close the gates when the open air theatre is full.(especially so on weekends) This show is free and free good is not necessary of poor quality. They had pumped in $4 Million for it. All of my friends had said this was one of the best they had seen. There are 4 shows: 5pm & 5:40pm shows are without laser display while 7:40pm & 8:40pm shows are with laser display. You must get into sentosa 1st via land or air(cable car or monorail) and admission is charged. http://www.sentosa.com.sg/useful_info/getting_to.html
Sentosa Island a resort island near the harbour. There are a number of options for getting to Sentosa, bus, taxi, boat, or the option we took,cable car. Jumped in a taxi outside the hotel to take us to the hill near the Harbour front, 5 minute drive, where cable cars leave to Sentosa. Bought us a 1 way ticket to Sentosa and spent 5 minutes listening to the girlfriend screaming as we made our way over the sea to the Sentosa island.
Plenty to do in Sentosa but being night time when we arrived we only managed to squeeze in a couple of attractions. We walked around checking out the Merlion etc. then after a lot of persuasion I got the girlfriend to wait in line for the musical fountain. This attraction was well worth the wait, as confirmed by the girlfriend, and is advised for any1 who gets the chance to go check it out. This was the last attraction we got to see that night and soon after it we got a bus back out of Sentosa and a taxi to the hotel.
Next morning we just had enough time for another quick visit to Sentosa before making our way to the airport. This time we got a taxi straight there and after resting on the artificial beaches we visited 2 attractions the Dolphin Lagoon and Waterworld. Dolphon Lagoon wasn't spectacular but was worth the money and for a bit extra we got a photo of us stroking the dolphins. Waterworld was fairly good, getting to see sharks etc. Worth going to see and is free of charge if you visit Dolphin Lagoon 1st or vice versa.
The musical fountain is a very popular attraction at Sentosa. It's showed at night. Images are projected and move with the fountain. I thought i was a little clever. The monkey/thing, named kiki(or something like that) that narrates the whole thing can be quite annoying, especially as he talks about his love for princess bubbles.
Kids really love this.
The musical fountain show is the most impressive show that you can catch in Sentosa. The show is around 7.40pm
I was in Sentosa since early afternoon and was so ready to leave the island. But then I met this tour guide and he suggested me catch this show or else the Sentosa trip would not be complete. So I waited and waited for the show. It turned out to be the best and most exciting show in Sentosa.
It is like the show of dancing fountain mixed with the laser show. Be there 20-30 mins before time to get your seat. Its free.
PS Too bad I wasnt be able to take any pics during the show. The battery was dead...*sigh*
The best thing that comes to my mind to describe this show is a "water ballet". It is a great show of dancing fountains to classical and modern instrumental songs. Don't miss it! It is a piece of art.
Moving water, lights, sound effect are the keys to make this Musical Fountain successful. It also shows during the day, but I would suggest to watch the night show. Because, the lights are on and more amusing. If you plan to visit Sentosa Island, You should not miss this!
