3E River Valley Road
Listen up, thrill seekers: if you’re looking to get your adrenaline pumping during your trip to Singapore, then this activity is for you! You may have heard of it or watched the videos on Youtube, and if you’re wondering what it feels like to experience it for yourself, wonder no more.
The GX-5 Extreme Swing can only be found in New Zealand and Singapore. It plunges from a height of 50m – that’s about as high as the Supertrees of Gardens by the Bay. Its speed goes over 120 kph, faster than a cheetah. The 5-seater capsule first rotates to face the river before it is pulled perpendicular to the ground with the riders facing downwards. Without warning, it releases and the next thing you know you are being thrown around in the air.
Do note that there are ride restrictions in place and you are required to adhere strictly to the safety rules at all times. These restrictions include minimum age and height requirements.
