The Pokémon-themed cabins are designed to resemble red-and-white Pokéballs floating in the sky. They have five different interiors featuring first-generation Pokémon like Pikachu and Eevee, as well as Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly from the latest Pokémon games. Every ride is a surprise – you won’t know which Pokémon will accompany you until you get on board.

At Mount Faber Peak Station, you’ll find plenty of eye-catching photo spots, including vintage cable car cabins decked out in Pokémon designs. Just as Pokémon evolved over different generations, the Singapore Cable Car has gone through many changes over its history. Cabins from previous generations have been decorated with classic Pokémon like Pikachu, Eevee, Psyduck, and Snorlax to give you a blast from the past. 

Afterwards, you can commemorate your visit by getting Pokéballs, plushies, figurines, and other Pokémon souvenirs from the Cable Car Gift Shop at Mount Faber and Imbiah Lookout

How much are tickets for the Pokémon cable car?


Tickets for the Pokémon cable car experience cost $35 for adults and $25 for children aged four to twelve. You can purchase tickets over the counter or on the official website. The ticket gives you a round trip on the Mount Faber Line and Sentosa Line. To get one-day unlimited rides, top-up $10 when you buy a ticket. Children aged three and below ride for free.
