The Singapore Cable Car is a beloved icon in Singapore that has
served over 60 million visitors since its inception in 1974. To
celebrate its 50th anniversary, Mount Faber Leisure Group has teamed up
with The Pokémon Company to create a year-long line-up of exciting
activities, starting with a special Pokémon experience.
From 1 May to 30 September, visitors to Mount Faber Peak,
Harbourfront, and Sentosa will catch a glimpse of a rare sight – an
eye-catching line of 67 Poké Ball cabins soaring 100 meters above sea
level. The exteriors of cable car cabins on the Mount Faber Line will be
wrapped in the recognisable red and white colors of Poké Balls.
But it's not just the outside of the cabins that are Pokémon-themed.
Inside each cabin awaits a surprise - five different interior designs,
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.
Tracy Lui, senior assistant director of marketing &
communications at Mount Faber Leisure Group, expressed that their
partnership with The Pokémon Company aims to offer a refreshing and
thrilling experience to their valued guests, both first-timers and
"The world's first Poké Ball-themed cable car is an exciting addition
that we are pleased to offer without any additional cost to our guests.
It's a reflection of our commitment to constantly elevate the
experiences Mount Faber Leisure Group offer," said Lui.
