continuation from previous post “Sentosa – Underwater World Singapore” …
Oh yes! They were CRAZY over the luge…errrmm… actually I was too!!! *laugh*
However, the voucher which I bought earlier (read this post) only entitled us to go for one round of luge and skyride.
Luge brings you down the hill and the skyride brings you back up.
I love go-karts, remember this post in year 2008 “Escape Theme Park“? We enjoyed it so much. Well, I find luge quite similar to go-kart.
This is NOT the first time for my boys to be on the Luge and SkyRide, unlike us. Kitkit and Binbin went for their first, with their beloved Ah Yi and Yi-Zhang, several years back. Look at their chubby faces back then.
Aren’t they adorable???!!! Aaawww….
During that time, they were obviously below the required minimum height, so they sat on the Luge with the adults. This time they were on their own! It definitely raised their level of excitement and the enthusiasm glowed in their eyes! *smile*
I could not take any photo of any of us on the luge as no photography was allowed in the ‘seating‘ area.
Once was NOT enough for the kids and I, we wanted to go for the Luge again, but Allan was not that keen, he prefers go-kart more.
Anyhow, right after we scrambled out of our Luge, we hopped into the Skyride.
All was fine until I saw how high I was!!!!
Oh man! I was sooooooooooo afraid! My legs were dangling in mid-air and they were going numb!
I dare not open my eyes anymore! There was a point where Binbin was doing some sort of ‘hip-dancing’ and the whole thing SHOOK!!!
I yelled at him!
I was terrified!
I could not think straight at all!
I just wanted the ride to end FAST!
Like IMMEDIATELY, there and then, stop!
Allan finds my extreme reaction very strange because I love to sit on roller coasters. In fact, we had already planned for our 3rd Legoland Malaysia trip, but with my my in-laws this time, 6 kids and 8 adults, before school reopens.
Each niece is already ‘fighting‘ to sit beside me, the ONLY ADULT, among the 8, who is
more than willing to go on any roller coaster ride, so that I could ‘give them courage’. *laugh*
Yet, look at me now! Totally petrified by a slow-moving-high-rise-transport! *faint*
Well, its just different!
Roller coaster moves along a track and my feet can rest on the cart.
The ride moves fast and the scary feeling ends in seconds too.
My legs felt so insecure, dangling in open space!
The only thing that kept me from falling from the sky was a ‘thick hook and rope’.
The bench was made of strips of metal, where I can see through them.
If I was without my pants, I bet my butt can feel the wind flying by between those strips!
I love the Luge but hates the Skyride.
We do not want to walk up the hill after every Luge ride, but it seems that Skyride was the only thing that can bring us back up.
My dear Allan ‘sacrificed‘.
He decided to drive to the bottom of the slope, where the Luge ride ends and waits for us over there, so that I do not need to take the Skyride back up. Oh yes, I forgot to mention that we DROVE our car into Sentosa that day.
With his support, he satisfied his children’s wishes and his wife’s too.
Yes, the 3 of us went for it once again, without the big guy.
This round, we went on the Jungle Trail, with more sharp bends, cool!
Seriously, we were very tempted to go for the 3rd time, but thinking that poor Allan got to drive up and down again…. Hhhmmm…. better not.
So till I find another way to bring us up the slope, other than taking the Skyride, from the end of the Luge ride back to the beginning of the Luge ride, I do not think I will venture it again.
We are a family, we should have fun together and not leave anyone behind……
