According to their press release, the Trifecta arenas are inspired by “the powder snow of Japan, the billowing waves of Bali, and the unrivaled skate bowls of California.”

It will also feature Asia’s first VR ski simulator, with classroom speed simulation and directional movements to mimic rough terrain.

The surf arena will have 1.5m water columns, the deepest in Singapore.

The skate arena will have the world’s first hybrid skate bowl designed for skateboarding and surfskating, and will be the first surfskate circuit in Singapore.

Trifecta will also launch eco-education programs, including upcycling and recycling to expand the use of sports equipment.

The attraction is expected to open in 2023.
