Mount Faber Leisure Group (MFLG) announces Central Beach Bazaar, a day-to-night carnival beach experience slated to open in September 2022. Poised to be the ultimate beachside destination that will invigorate the senses for visitors of all ages, Central Beach Bazaar will introduce three new attractions and a new multi-F&B concept, including the 80-metre high Sentosa SkyJet, the tallest fountain in Southeast Asia.
Joining Sentosa SkyJet in the lineup of new experiences is a modern rendition of the iconic Sentosa Musical Fountain from the early 1980s, and a casual eclectic F&B concept International Food Street. The third new attraction, to be revealed at a later time, will offer simulation ride experiences and carnival games. Footsteps away from Sentosa’s Beach Station, Central Beach Bazaar will enhance the existing entertainment, dining and retail experiences that MFLG currently operates, like the popular outdoor night show Wings of Time. The existing Good Old Days Food Court & Western Grill and FUN Shop @ Beach Plaza are also part of the Central Beach Bazaar.
Mr Buhdy Bok, Managing Director of MFLG, said, ”We took the opportunity of the pandemic tourism lull to reimagine, pivot and transform our offering that was essentially operating only in the evenings, into one that is appealing — not only to tourists, but also locals — and yet is able to delight our customers from day to night. With the return of Sentosa Musical Fountain, a plethora of lifestyle offerings, and the new magnificent SkyJet Sentosa, Central Beach Bazaar is poised to be a bustling, one-stop entertainment destination located in the prime centre of the popular Siloso Beach.”
Ms Thien Kwee Eng, Chief Executive Officer, Sentosa Development Corporation, said, “The Central Beach Bazaar is a key milestone in the series of new leisure experiences coming onstream along Sentosa’s beaches. Together with the upcoming Palawan Sands and other novel offerings, the Central Beach Bazaar will give our guests a reimagined beach experience. We look forward to welcoming more Singaporeans and tourists to Sentosa, and will continue to push ahead and partner the industry to curate diverse and fulfilling leisure experiences.”
Changing The Sentosa Skyline
At 80 metres tall, equivalent to a 24-storey building, Sentosa SkyJet will be the tallest fountain in Southeast Asia, a new landmark enhancing the Sentosa skyline and providing a captivating new visual marker for beachgoers. Floating on an open sea platform, Sentosa SkyJet was designed and constructed to minimise impact on the environment and marine life. It is anchored by marine-grade chains and seabed weights, without the need for concrete groundwork, unlike traditional fountains of its kind.
Adjacent to the over-water stage for Wings of Time, Sentosa SkyJet was created to complement the outdoor night show’s perfectly choreographed symphony of water jets, laser light projections and pyrotechnics. Powered by underwater hydraulic pumps that propel seawater at high speeds, the graceful plume of the Sentosa SkyJet is a sight to behold even kilometres away. LED lights will illuminate its stream, presenting a colourful and equally majestic spectacle in the evening sky. www.mountfaberleisure.com
