SENTOSA has opened its latest attraction, a multimillion-dollar adventure park.MegaZip Adventure Park features a flying fox ride, a simulated free-fall jump, an obstacle rope course and a climbing wall.

The centrepiece is the flying fox ride which gives the park its name. Billed as one of Asia’s steepest and longest, it will take riders 450m from a tower 72m up over the island’s jungle canopy and Siloso Beach. The ride ends on an islet.

Thrillseekers, tethered by harnesses, have to be at least 1.2m tall to get on it.

The park is a five-minute bus ride from Siloso Beach.

Three years in the making, the attraction aims to pull in 60,000 visitors in its first year.

Corporate and private groups can visit the park from today, but members of the public will have to wait a few weeks.

The park’s managing director Alexander Blyth explained yesterday that this will enable the staff to iron out the kinks in logistics and operations.

The park will be open daily from 10am to 10pm.

Ticket prices range from $10 to $60 per person, depending on the choice of activities. Family packages for two adults and up to three children are available.
