The luge on Sentosa Island is the 1st in Southeast Asia (SEA).
The luge which is imported from New Zealand is a part go-cart, part-toboggan look alike vehicle. It uses gravity and a unique steering and braking system that allows you to make the ride as leisurely or as exciting as you want.
The luge is almost an exact copy of the one which we took in Queenstown. Except that we get to take unlimited chairlift ride in Queenstown.

The Sentosa Luge is 650m long gravity ride on a three-wheel vehicle that is part go-cart, part-toboggan.
A chairlift then takes the riders back to the top of the hill to do it all again!

I tend to like sights that give me a good view, so I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed with the Skyride from Sentosa Island. It promised a lot, but didn't either give me a good view or a lot of excitment.
The skyride starts from Sentosa Island, next to the Luge ride, and goes up the hill. At most you're maybe 40-50 meters up in the air, and on certain occasions you'll get a nice view over the harbour. But it's never a "clean shot" as there are always other rides coming and disturbs your view.
Most exciting then might either be to look at the people you meet with a phobia to be up in the air, or worry about how to get off the damn ride at the top of the hill (to then just walk around and get on it again around the corner).
To be fair this felt more like tourist trap. But I fell in it, so good on them! :)
You can also use the ride to get to the top of the Luge ride, a 650 meter long gocart ride, going down the hill. Apparently you can drive quite fast on the down hill, but for me it looked even more like a tourist trap. Didn't fall for that one at least.
Price for just the skyride is 10 SGD (5 euro). If you want to drive too there is a combination price of 18 SGD (9 euro).
Recently they have also started to keep both the luge and the skyride open in the evening. Can imagine that the view over all the lightened up ships out on the sea must be pretty exciting from the ride. And even better if you manage to get up there during the light show in the evening.
This is a best kept secret in Sentosa!. It is haft go kart half toboggan and very exciting. You can ride it down the hill (with brake system) and go back up the hill by chair lift. My teenage son said that it was the best thing in Sentosa for kids!.
It's half-toboggan, half-kart---at least, that's what the brochure says. It's a fun ride down from Imbiah, I encourage everyone to do it. Or, if you don't feel spiralling down, you may choose to ride the Skyride/chairlift instead.
It costs SGD8 for a chairlift ride up and a luge ride down.
Go play the Luge at Imbiah Point, Sentosa Island. Real fun. My sister told me one of the Great Wall in Beijing pass has a similar Luge to visitors to 'luge' down after a tiring walk up.
