The Wings of Time is a popular show which runs twice a night on the Singapore resort island of Sentosa. The spectacular show was created by the award winning French show company ECA2 and is the world’s only night time show that’s set on the open sea. The highly acclaimed show has been running since June 2014 and cost a whopping $10 million to produce.
It is a state of the art show that consists of lasers, pyrotechnics, 3D projection mapping, and robotic water fountains along with a live cast. The open air gallery sits on Siloso Beach and can comfortably seat 2,500 spectators.
The 25-minute long show stars a prehistoric bird like creature that travels with his human friends back in time to different historical periods and through some stunning landscapes to help him find his way home. The trio travels to the Silk Road Era, the African Savannah, the Industrial Revolution in Britain, the Mayan Pyramids, and the Underwater World. It is truly spectacular with the backdrop all created using multimedia effects.
The Wings of Time is full of special effects, brilliant performance of actors, and outstanding music. The cast performs on a 120-metre long wooden platform that is built off shore at the far eastern end of Siloso Beach.
There are two shows each night: one at 19:40 and one at 20:40 with many visitors ending a day tour on Sentosa by enjoying the amazing live show. The five square kilometre island has so much to offer including two golf courses, 14 hotels, a two kilometre stretch of beach, and a massive theme park.
Perhaps, this is one night show not to be missed with tourists of all ages being able to really enjoy this phenomenal show. It is a great way to end a thrilling day on Sentosa before heading back to Singapore’s main island, though some visitors stay at a hotel right on the island. Show tickets include a snack and a gift voucher so visitors can shop, eat, and watch the show all for one price.
Getting to the show can be done in many ways, depending on the starting point. Beach Station is the closest Sentosa Express station to the show, followed by a five minute walk to the beach and the theatre. Also, Sentosa Bus 1, 2 and 3 make a stop at Beach station, while trams run along Siloso Beach Walk and also make a stop at this station. It should be noted that the show takes place rain or shine so ticket exchanges and refunds are not permitted.
