Southeast Asia’s Tallest Fountain To Open In Sentosa
While water attractions are a dime a dozen in Singapore, it seems that as a nation, we can’t get enough of water and light shows – and for good reason. They’re soothing, they’re romantic, and if you’re a parent of toddlers, you’ll know how effective they are at captivating the kids when you need a few moments’ rest.
So here’s some good news: Singapore will soon be home to Southeast Asia’s tallest water fountain, the 80-metre Sentosa SkyJet, opening in Sentosa’s upcoming Central Beach Bazaar in September 2022 (for reference, 80 metres is roughly the height of a 24-storey building).
Anchored in place by marine-grade chains and seabed weights, the Sentosa SkyJet resembles an elegant, sail-shaped geyser. And unlike many of its traditional counterparts, the Sentosa Skyjet is eco-friendly: it will not be constructed with any concrete groundwork, meaning that it'll hardly disturb the surrounding wildlife.
Here's what else we know about the fountain:
- It will stand alongside Sentosa's new Central Beach Bazaar, a day-to-night carnival experience opening on Siloso Beach in September 2022. In addition to the fountain, there will be new-ish water shows (more on that later!), a new International Food Street replete with upcycled shipping containers and Kombi vans, and a yet-to-be-announced attraction with simulation rides and carnival games.
- The Sentosa SkyJet is FREE to visit. But if you'd like a closer view, just spend $5 per person at the new International Food Street to gain entry into the Wings of Time gallery.
- The fountain will also light up at night, at the conclusion of the iconic show's dazzling multi-sensory theatrics.
And speaking of theatrics...
Remember the Sentosa Musical Fountain? A primer for those who don't: the beloved attraction opened in 1982, and closed in 2007, after hosting 25 different water shows. Here's one to jog your memory:

Well, come September, the Sentosa Musical Fountain will be back as a daytime attraction, operating from the Wings of Time stage.
In true nostalgic fashion, it'll host two shows: one 1990s-themed, and another based on Singapore's classic National Day songs, such as 'Home' and 'Count On Me Singapore'.
And while September's still a few weeks ago, you can certainly ✨count on us✨ to visit once these attractions open.
