This is a free show every night at 8pm. Much of the show involves the two 10-story high mechanical cranes moving and "dancing" The cranes' movements were fluid, and they use water fountain spraying out from the sides of the cranes to simulate their wings, which was a nice touch. However, much of the real story (i.e. the love story)... More

We were very disappointed that this was not working. We walked across to Sentosa just to see the Crane Dance - we were in Singapore for the weekend - but it was not working at all. Disappointing that they would close it so close to Xmas. Please check before going there

We waited for this crane dance, but due to bad weather it was cancelled last minute. We got a chance to see it the next day we were in Sentosa. It isnt like a Disneyland show so keep your expectations low and you may enjoy it.

The crane dance is a free and unique 10 minute show, that happens nightly along the waterfront in front of Resort World. The show is based on the actual cranes courtship and provides a spectacular audio, visual and pyrotechnic light display. There is ample seating although it does fill up closer to the show so ensure you arrive a little... More

An interesting and unique display. You sit on the steps to watch though the steps are quite warm still holding heat from the sun. They do have fans to help cool you off. The show itself is pretty short but quite unique. Worth a visit. A short walk over from vivo mall.

We were so lucky we were in Resort Workd at the right time for this as did not see it advertised in Resort World and online saw it listed for a different time. We only suspected it was coming on when we saw people sitting waiting for something to start I went with my husband and we both loved it.... More

We were on staycation at RWS in June and went to catch this 10-minute show at the Waterfront. It's a musical performance by 2 crane robots combined with water & lighting effects, about the love story of the 2 cranes. The show was spectacular and amazingly good. We've enjoyed tremendously. The performance even ended with a mini fireworks which the... More

After a nice evening walk, our guide suggested we check out the Crane dance. I was unaware of what I was about to experience and from start to end I was in awe at these majestic mechanical creates sharing their love story with me and hundreds of other strangers. The juxtaposing mechanics and soothing audio visual lightship make this an... More

Incredible free 10 minute show. My 3 year old twin boys were absolute fascinated and in amazement. Adults will also be fascinated.
