The Magical Sentosa was one of the most best performance ever staged on the Sentosa Musical Fountain,it was proved to be the favourable among guest who watch the performance.The 5 year old "kiddie-orientated" show,is the only show to be staged with a revival plot.The idea was born in 2000 when Yves Pépin (who designed Songs of the Sea) and his team of specialists decided that he should design a show that suits the theme of Imbiah Lookout,fantasy was the main theme to the attraction.After the restoration of the fountain itself. Engineers started installing new equipment to create an all new nighttime spectacular, Magical Sentosa and to make things better Kiki the Hyperactive Monkey of Sentosa was host of the show itself. It is also the first time ever that viewers will also be able to see him in CGI.The project name of the show was dubbed Sentosa Water & Fire Fantasy Show by ECA2 creative division.
