One Faber Group marks the 45th anniversary of the Singapore Cable Car with the debut of ‘Miraculous’, an original multi-sensorial video-mapping show on the Angsana tree at hilltop restaurant Arbora at Faber Peak Singapore. There will also be a line-up of exciting activities, events, F&B promotions at Singapore’s only hilltop destination from 30 March 2019.
The Singapore Cable Car connects Mount Faber to Sentosa Island and offers guests seamless access to a collection of unique leisure activities from the hilltop to the island. An iconic attraction that has played a significant role in the Singaporean tourism landscape for 45 years, the Singapore Cable Car had captured the hearts and minds of locals and tourists with its breath-taking scenic views of Sentosa Island, Mount Faber and the Harbourfront. Since starting operations in 1974, close to 57 million riders have taken the Singapore Cable Car. Today, guests sit in the comfort of the spacious 4th generation cable car cabins, which are encased with floor-to-ceiling glass panels that offer even greater viewing pleasure of the ever-changing views of Southern Singapore.
For over four decades, the Singapore Cable Car has scored many notable achievements, such as being featured in an episode of popular American television series Hawaii Five-O (1979); having played host to the contestants of the Miss World Pageant (1989), Asia’s first to offer sky dining in a cable car cabin (1998); and the world’s first Angry Bird themed cable car (2012).
“With the Singapore Cable Car as our focus for the 45th anniversary campaign, guests can look forward to fun and exciting activities that revolve around this attraction to create lasting memories for tourists and to bring back happy memories for the locals. Our calendar is packed year-long with new experiences designed to delight guests to (re)visit and (re)discover Mount Faber. Through this, One Faber Group reinforces our commitment to continually renew and refresh our diverse range of products, so that guests will always find new opportunities to (re)create new moments with us,” said Mr Buhdy Bok, Managing Director, Mount Faber Leisure Group.
One Faber Group proudly introduces a new multi-sensorial Video Mapping Night Show at Faber Peak Singapore which will be performed nightly from 30 Mar 2019. Through a kaleidoscope of light projected onto the towering Angsana tree located at Arbora restaurant, guests will be taken on a hypnotic journey as they follow the mesmerising quest of a pair of squirrels named Mira and Mirak, and their forest friends.

Mao Shan Wang Durian Feast @ Mount Faber
Also “貓山王” in Chinese, “山” refers to “hills”, which served as an inspiration for this event - bringing Mao Shan Wang to the Mount Faber hill. Durian is a beloved fruit among locals and fans would rave and crave for the king of durians - the Mao Shan Wang. Unlike durian feasts found in the city and heartlands, participants would certainly delight at the refreshing change of scene at Faber Deck, which features scenic views of the Harbourfront. Here, guests get to savour a variety of durian breeds amid a rustic setup – where durian stalls, tables and chairs take on an old school vibe – as they are serenaded by chirping birds and rustling leaves from the surrounding lush greenery.
