Images of Singapore LIVE reopens

Images of Singapore
If you have not been to Images of Singapore in the past , you have probably miss one of the more interesting display of Singapore past in Sentosa. We had been to the old Images of Singapore before the refurbishment and had high hopes based on what we had explored .

The 'newer' images of Singapore gets a reboot and is now known as Images of Singapore LIVE (IOS Live) This is a re-launch and re-brand by Merlin Entertainment that promises to create a fully interactive experiences for visitors.

The entrance is located together with Madame Tussauds. Compared to the past, there is a queue to the start of this 40 minutes guided attraction.

The main difference between the 'old' IOS and IOS LIVE is the inclusion of live actors, special effects and immersive theming. There are a total of 12 full time actors and 8 part time actors working in the attaction. Each of them had to undergo 6 weeks of training to be fit for work.
Realistic Actors and Actress
The guided tour kicks off from the Quayside walk and ends at Spirit of Singapore Boat Ride. There are a total of 15 immersive areas for visitors to walk through. You would need to follow the guide's instructions to complete the attraction. Visitors are split into small groups in order to fully experience the individual scene.

Do note that photography is not allowed during the tour.

Air Raid

Spirit of Singapore
Without giving too much away, we must say the acting was top notch during the guided tour. We were bought from rooms to rooms to learn about the history of Singapore from 1819 to present day. We particularly enjoy the transition from Jubilee Cinema to Television shop as we had to run during an air raid and escape through the jungles.

We do feel that it was a little rush through the rooms and it will be better if there are more interactive exhibits in between the different segments as per the old IOS. There are still remnants of the old IOS waxed figures scattered around the exhibit. They are now back of the backdrop rather than the main attractions. A pity, given how realistic they were in the past.

There are segments which are a little tad dark and may frighten the younger crowd. We think this attraction is probably more suited for audience age 8 and up.
Sir Stamford Raffles

The tour ended with the Spirit of Singapore Boat Ride. The ride is a short round trip with iconic and recognizable Singapore elements such as Gardens by the Bay and Sir Stamford Raffles. The latter is a realistic wax figure that deserve a spot at the Sister attraction Madame Tussauds that is situated right next door. We think you should combine a visit to IOS LIVE with Madame Tussauds to bring more bang for your bucks. You can book and advance combo ticket here and save $6 off the regular price.
