AJ Hackett bungy attraction boosts visits on Singapore’s Sentosa Island

AJ Hackett bungy attraction boosts visits on Singapore’s Sentosa Island
February 6, 2018

The recent opening of AJ Hackett Sentosa has added another attraction on Singapore's Sentosa Island.

Opened in November, the development at Silosa Beach on the south side of the island, includes a 47-metre bungy jump, two giant swings, a vertical skywalk and a skybridge vertigo experience, as well as a restaurant and bar in a purpose-built tower.

Developing bungy and adventure tourism projects around the world as part of a multimillion dollar international expansion, AJ Hackett International founder and Chief Executive AJ Hackett recently commented “this project has been one of the more challenging sites we have built but the end result is something very special."

2017 marked the 30th anniversary since Hackett introduced the world to commercial bungy jumping by sensationally leaping off the Eiffel Tower in Paris in 1987.

Nearby attraction Skyline Luge Sentosa also launched two new luge tracks and a new Skyride at the end of 2017 as part of a $14 million update of the attraction.

With the two new tracks, guests taking the luge ride - where they travel in a three-wheeled cart driven by gravity - can expect shorter waiting times.

The new tracks are also specially designed with hairpin corners and exciting slopes.
