Although Singapore doesn’t quite have the land mass for actual skydiving, the next best thing would definitely be iFly Singapore’s indoor skydiving simulator. In addition to a flying height of 17.22 meters (the height of a five-story building), the enclosed wind tunnel also has an acrylic glass wall, allowing for stunning views of Siloso Beach and the South China Sea.

Singapore’s very first full-length karting race track features a technically challenging 750m circuit. The track allows speed demons to overtake fellow drivers and reach breathtaking speeds of up to 130km/h.
511 Upper Jurong Rd., 6265-3303, S(638366), MRT: Joo Koon
This giant flying fox suspends riders a startling 75 meters above ground and sends them flying across Sentosa at a speed of 60km/h. Starting at the peak of Imbiah Hill, the zipline course runs above the island’s jungle canopies, the beach and the sea, coming to a stop at Siloso Beach.

With a soccer field-sized arena, Red Dynasty is one of the largest paintball venues in Singapore, and includes a speedball field, a 20m shooting gallery and two scenario-based fields. Players can experience the thrill of a high-pressure battle scenario with various game packages.

Not for the faint-hearted— board the Skyride chairlift, which takes you beyond the canopy of trees on a 1.2km hillside with a bird’s eye view of the Sentosa coastline. Upon reaching the top, you can opt to whizz downhill via the luge, a ride which allows you to control your speed via gravity-controlled mechanisms on a luge track.
