The total distance of the cable car ride is 890m long which is half of the existing cable car distance linking Sentosa to Mount Faber. At this new line, visitors can enjoy a scenic view overlooking the western part of the island like Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa Hotel, Underwater World Singapore and Fort Siloso. The new line will also improve the access between Merlion Plaza, Mount Imbiah and Siloso Point as these venues can only be reached by shuttle bus.
