A DIFFERENT SENTOSA ISLAND
August 31, 2019
Sentosa Island is located at the central region of Singapore, with an area of approximately 50,000m2. While Sentosa is famous with Resorts World Sentosa (RWS), an integrated resort, which is the first attractions that welcoming visitors when they arriving from mainland Singapore. Being an integrated resort, RWS is an entertainment destination which consists of casino, hotels, foods & beverage, museum, and themed attractions like Universal Studios, Adventure Cove Waterpark, S.E.A. Aquarium and etc. Beyond RWS, the island also has activities along the stretch of white sand beach, a secondary rainforest with the habitat of monitor lizards, monkeys, peacocks, parrots as well as other native fauna and flora, together within there are some historical building too! Apparently, there are more places to be explored by visitors on the island, apart from famous RWS. However, majority of visitors are stopped by for RWS, without further exploring to other areas. There is in fact missing of connectivity and continuity of visitor experience into the destination. Hence, we have proposed to improve the overall connectivity within the island, in addition, with add on entertainment and special effects to drawing in visitors to extend their holidays on the island, day and night!
CONNECTIVITY | PROPOSED ADDITIONAL CIRCULATION WITH INITIAL PLAN
Singapore is high humidity and abundant rainfall, as well as high temperatures due to its geographical location that proximity to the equator and maritime exposure. To enhance overall visitor experience, connectivity is the main issue within the island. Despite there are several transport links such as Sentosa Express, cable car, tram, buses and etc, however, from one point to another, visitor may have to take several transports in order to reach the destination that they wanna go. To improve it, we proposed hanging bike carriages to connect the island for:-
- Effectively and efficiency to come and go
- Improve connectivity and accessibility
- Require less footprint of land
- Flexibility of adding new features
OVERALL EXPERIENCE | PROPOSED ENTERTAINMENT ELEMENTS AND CREATIVE
With BIKE CARRIAGES, and a little yet attractive story telling with helps of technology, they make connectivity and experience complete as ONE PERFECT major ride attraction come with new experience from all existing attractions. We are looking into overall enhancement on the connectivity and continuity to immerse visitors into the worlds of imagination, fun & escapism within the island with its own characteristic, where visitors are not possible to get the same elsewhere, because those special features are tailor made for the island only, and to enjoy it, the only way is to return to the island.
