SINGAPORE - Sentosa's newest attraction, a night show set in the sea off Siloso Beach called Wings of Time, officially opened on Wednesday.

The 25-minute show, which cost $10 million to produce, has attracted more than 75,000 guests since its first show on June 17.

Featuring pyrotechnics, water fountains and multimedia effects, the show tells the story of two teenagers, Felix and Rachel, and their adventures as they help a bird-like creature named Shahbaz find its way home.

Wings of Time takes the place of Sentosa's previous signature night show, Songs of the Sea, which ended a seven-year run in May. It is part of Sentosa's ongoing efforts to refresh its offerings.

Mr S Iswaran, Minister in the Prime Minister's Office and Second Minister for Home Affairs and Trade and Industry officiated the opening ceremony on Wednesday.

"Our shows must continually refresh and rejuvenate themselves to cater to increasingly discerning local and foreign visitors," he said.

The new show "augments our attractions landscape and widens the range of entertainment choices for Singaporeans and tourists", he added.

The show takes place twice a night at 7.40pm and 8.40pm. Tickets cost $23 for premium seats while standard seats go for $18. Local residents pay just $15.
