News: Mooncake-making in the sky lands Singapore Cable Car a new title in Singapore Book of Records

Singapore Cable Car’s (SCC) Mid-Autumn Festival got off to a high start as it entered the Singapore Book of Records on Saturday, for conquering a sky-high challenge.

202 mooncakes were molded and made in flight / mid-air over a distance of 1.7km onboard the iconic attraction, earning SSC a “Most Number of Mooncakes Made Onboard Singapore Cable Car” title of record!

A popular gateway to Sentosa since 1974, the cableway is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. With 49 families on board in 45 cabins, most of them Singaporeans and local residents, took off on the 30-minute moon-lit flight from Faber Peak Singapore, across the Sentosa-HarbourFront precinct to Sentosa Island and back, each carrying a family of four who received a reunion kit with tools and ingredients to make the mooncakes.

“The event brought out the spirt of the Mid-Autumn Festival,” said Mrs Angelia Yang who attended with her husband and two children. “My family enjoyed the process of making mooncakes together and because we won’t do it at home, it was a very good family bonding activity for us. This was also our first time making our own moon cakes and the view along the cable car line made the whole experience more worthwhile.”

Ms Suzanne Ho, General Manager of Mount Faber Leisure Group shared, “This mooncake feat adds to the list of endearing moments that have been enjoyed on the cable car over the last 40 years. These include a mass wedding, a dramatic scene that was filmed for the old tele-series, Hawaii Five O, and thematic campaigns like Angry Birds and the recently launched DC Super Heroes. We are over the moon that the response has been so positive, and that once again, the cable cars have generated great memories for Singapore families and overseas visitors.”
