Take a leap of faith from the country’s first 50m-tall bungee tower on Sentosa Island’s Siloso Beach. You can choose to have your head dipped in the 3.5m-deep pool of water at the bottom or stay dry. For more adrenaline-fuelled fun, ride the Giant Swing strapped facing down and be hurtled 40m above the ground before being dropped down at speeds of up to 120km/h. After this, walking on the 47m-high glass-panelled Skybridge will be a walk in the park.
