On the upcoming 1 September 2012, Sentosa is celebrating its big 4-0 (forty) with a birthday party on the island! You are invited to join in the celebrations on the Open Day! Complimentary island admission via Sentosa Boardwalk or Sentosa Express! Not only that, look out for offers to various attractions on the island and for those who are 40 years old this year as you can get to ride on the Skyline Luge or to catch the Sentosa 4D Magix for free!

Key celebrations include:

Asia’s first ice slide by the beach @ Ice Playground by the Beach, Palawan Beach

“Have a go on the first ever ice slide by the beach in Asia! The ‘Ice Playground by the Beach’ is located next to Sentosa’s latest family attraction, ‘Port of Lost Wonder’ and will feature two ice slides, measuring five-metre and eight-metre. The fun gets ‘cooler’ on an ice train sculpture and guests can enjoy cold drinks from a drink dispenser sculpted like an ice luge.”

Sentosa Buskers Festival @ Sentosa-HarbourFront

“The action continues into the night with the ‘Sentosa Buskers Festival’ which returns for the third year, and will feature more fun and entertaining acts. Some 14 international buskers from 11 countries will perform the wackiest acts on Sentosa. Enjoy a clown juggler and a strong woman crushing apples with her biceps. This year’s festival will extend to Resorts World Sentosa and Mount Faber.“

3D video images on Merlion @ Fiesta!, Merlion Plaza

“Get in the groove with exciting dance and busker performances in a carnival at the Merlion Plaza. Stilt walkers sporting colourful balloon costumes will add a splash of fun and colour to your photos. Don’t miss the dancers from Jitterbugs Swingapore.

At sundown, a rousing display will light up the Merlion Tower and transform the majestic 37-metre icon into a digital canvas. 3D video images will be projected onto its façade and the vibrant finale will culminate in a fireworks display. A thousand cupcakes will be given out to guests to sweeten the celebration.”

Sentosa’s sand sculptures exhibition @ Sandy Treasures, Beach Plaza

“See the transformation of Sentosa over 40 years in five unique sand sculptures. The main sculpture measures 18-metre and is 2.5-metre high. It tells the story of Sentosa’s transformation from an idyllic fishing village to a buzzing island resort destination. Catch a glimpse  of old favourites like Fantasy Island on the amazing
sculptures! “
