Pokémon-themed flights, bags, workshops and more—what’s next on the list for the iconic franchise? Why not Pokémon-themed cable car rides? Mount Faber Leisure Group has unveiled a brand new Pokémon-themed cable car experience, complete with your favourite Pokémon characters and a refreshed dining menu! We had the opportunity to try the new experience first-hand ahead of its official launch and we’re here to give you the 411.
This one-of-a-kind Pokémon Cable Car experience is conceptualised in honor of Singapore Cable Car’s 50th anniversary, and is definitely a treat for all you Pokémon fans out there. All 67 of the cable cars will be refashioned as Poké Balls—outfitted with Pokémon-themed decor on both the inside and outside.
There will be 5 different Pokémon characters to look forward to, so you’ll be in for a surprise each time you sit for a cable car ride! Find first-generation characters like Pikachu and Eevee, plus new characters like Sprigatito, Fuecoco and Quaxly! These characters will be decorating the cabin’s windows, seats and floors, so you’ll find Pokémon all around you as you ride!
Don’t miss out on the various Pokémon-themed photo spots around Mount Faber Peak as well: featuring vintage editions of the cable car cabins decorated in Pokémon decor, backdrops and character standees too! You can also stop by the gift shop for more Pokémon merchandise like plushies, figurines, cards, blind boxes and more.
While you’re at it, head to Arbora Hilltop Garden & Bistro for their newly revamped menu featuring familiar local-inspired favourites with a contemporary twist! Highlights from the new menu include Peking Duck ($24), Pasta “Hokkien Mee” ($28), Khao Soi ($26) and Mount Faber Club ($24), just to name a couple. View the full menu at Arbora here.
The Pokémon Cable Car experience will be available from 1st May till 30th September 2023, so hurry and catch a ride in one of these Poké Balls before it’s too late! Tickets start from $35 per adult for a round-trip ride between Mount Faber Line and Sentosa Line, and you can get them online here. Over the counter tickets and bundles will also entitle visitors to redeem a free Pokémon visor (subject to availability, while stocks last).
