Getting vertigo? For $20 you can at Sands SkyPark in Singapore.
Stretching longer than the Eiffel tower laid down or four and a half A380 Jumbo Jets, with an impressive 12,400 square meters of space, the Sands SkyPark can host up to 3900 people. At 57-stories high, the gravity-defying cantilever is one of the largest of its kind in the world. From this privileged observation deck, hundreds of visitors at a time can feast their eyes on the unforgettable panorama view of Singapore or play in a casino, bars, restaurants, the largest outdoor swimming pool at that height — an infinity pool 150 meters long, and a Museum of Modern Art. Oh, and leave the cigarettes home. Smoking is strictly prohibited, as are a number of items.
The total area of the resort is 20 hectare. The resort consists of casino, a hotel with 2,561 rooms, convention and exhibition center which is spread over 120,000 sq.m area, shopping malls, a unique art and science museum, two sand theatres, seven celebrity chef restaurants, two floating pavilions. The casino is so big that there are 500 tables arranged and 1600 slot machines are operating.
At the top of the complex there is the most amazing feature of the resort, a park which is named Sky Park. This park has the capacity of 3,900 people.
The designer or architect of the project is Moshe Safdie architects. The engineers were from Arup & Parsons Brinkerhoff. The main contractor of this most amazing project was Ssang Yong Engineering & Construction. Some difficulties like labour shortage, global financial crisis and cost of material delayed the opening of the resort which was planned in 2009.
