The Singapore Cable Car Sentosa Line is the latest addition to the Singapore Cable Car Sky Network and the transport system within Sentosa Island. Spanning 880 meters between Merlion and Siloso Point stations, it is the fastest link between the two points but is also the only paid transport system within Sentosa Island (the internal Sentosa Express, Sentosa Bus and Beach Tram are free of charge). Due to the chargeble fares, most passengers use the line for sightseeing purposes rather than a regular mode of transport.
The Singapore Cable Car Sentosa Line serves 3 stations, namely, Merlion Station, Imbiah Lookout Station and Siloso Point Station.
Merlion Station – Imbiah Lookout Station
Merlion Station is the eastern terminus of the Singapore Cable Car Sentosa Line. If you are coming in from the Sentosa Express (monorail), this is the interchange from Imbiah Station.
If you haven’t already gotten your ticket, you may purchase it at the ticket counters before heading up to the boarding area.
The stations on the Singapore Cable Car Sentosa Line are rather compact, probably due to the limited footprint they are allowed to be built on the already land-scarce island.

If you are heading to the Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom, Images of Singapore LIVE, Madame Tussauds Singapore, MegaZip Adventure Park, Sentosa 4D Adventureland, Sentosa Nature Discovery, Skyline Luge Sentosa, Tiger Sky Tower or Sentosa Cable Car Mount Faber Line, this station is for you.

Overall, the Sentosa Cable Car Sentosa Line offers a convenient and scenic but hot and humid mode of transport across Sentosa Island. As the cable cars are non-air-conditioned, combined with Singapore’s heat, the cable car gets hot pretty easily. It may not be a good idea to stay on board for a complete round.
