Singapore Cable Car kicks off a year-long celebration for its 50th Anniversary (February 2024), starting with an all-new POKÉMON EXPERIENCE!
From 1st May to 30th September 2023, visitors can enjoy a special POKÉMON experience in the sky at Singapore Cable Car where 67 of its cabins, across the Mount Faber Line and 100 metres above sea level, are transformed into the iconic red and white colours of Poké Balls!
To get the excitement started, Singapore Cable Car atop the verdant hilltop destination of Mount Faber Peak welcomes visitors with super nice photo spots of vintage cable car cabins X Pikachu and friends!
Inside each Poké Ball cabin awaits a surprise – a total of five different interior designs to be explored where each themed around first-generation Pokémon like Pikachu and Eevee, as well as Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly from the latest Pokémon video games.
Families and fans of Pokémon will experience something new each time they ride on the Singapore Cable Car, marveling at a vibrant assemblage of newly-installed beautiful, multicoloured lights at Mount Faber Station, Harbourfront Station, and Sentosa Station.
Each of us was given cute Pokémon sun visors to keep us cool in the day and we love them as our memorabilia for this fun adventure!
When it was our turn, Pikuchu’s cabin came and we hopped on like happy kids as soon as the cabin door opened. The cabin interior definitely enlivens anyone’s mood right away seeing how bright and cute the design is! We can’t help but to snap lots of pictures and videos with it! Not forgetting how mesmerizing the 360° panoramic view from above is, with the beautiful sun-setting vibes we are in!
We made a round trip back to Mount Faber Station and visited the Singapore Cable Car Gift Shop where there are various Pokémon collectibles available!
For our dinner, we headed over to Arbora Hilltop Garden & Bistro for a preview of their upcoming new menu launch prepared by Executive Chef Robert Chan and his team!
Of course, we had our nation’s very own Singapore Sling cocktail – the perfect selection to celebrate Singapore Cable Car’s Golden Jubilee!
We can see and taste how fun the new dishes are combining elements from different cultures such as French and Thai styles. My favourite is the Pasta Hokkien Mee and the Salmon Tartare while Aziel likes the tantalizing Khao Soi!

Celebrate with the iconic Singapore Cable Car

Ahead of its Golden Jubilee in February 2024, MFLG will begin a year-long celebration to commemorate 50 years of delightful experiences on the Singapore Cable Car – Mount Faber Line while allowing visitors to create countless more unforgettable memories. Starting with a special Pokémon experience on the Mount Faber Line, visitors can also look forward to a series of activities and F&B delights for the whole family that will debut later in the year.
