    SINGAPORE FLYER

    by GIPA Updated Jun 1, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Immediately after the double-bus tour I went to Singapore Flyer. It costed $33.
    The entrance is a mall with escalators that try todistract you with photographies and other things along the queue.
    I could see the big Ferry wheel from my hotel but it seemed stopped. There , I understood that it turns very very slow , and it allow to enter and exit easily. Into the huge cabin , there is a place to sit , in the middle , but everybody stands near the windows,
    The view was amazing and I could take lots of photos through the glass that unfortunately wasnt so clean , even because it was raining.. From the highest point , you see Marina Bay Sands observation deck very near. I think the total turn lasted 30 minutes,
    I heard that the position of Singapore flyer was chosen through Feng-Shui and that visiting it brings fortune and good luck, so , don´t miss it!

    The Singapore Flyer is a large wheel, and costs $33 per adult to ride in the daytime, and may be less to purchase tickets online at the official website below. There are also other options, such as having a meal there, at night. That costs more.

    We were lucky to have a whole carriage to ourselves, early in the morning, and we were also lucky that the air was fairly clear. When the pollution is heavy (especially when there is forest burning in neighbouring Indonesia) the skies of Singapore are clogged by pollution and the view from the Flyer will be decreased.

    If going by train - go to The Promenade MRT Station (Circle Line, CC4) and the Flyer is a short walk away.

    If going by public buses, take 106, 111 or 133 to Temasek Avenue. The Singapore Flyer is just across the road.

    There are also taxis and water taxis. The website below, the official website, has timetable information and information about car parking fees if you are driving yourself.

    The Singapore Flyer is 150 metres in diameter.

    The Singapore Flyer measures 165 metres in height.

    Each passenger capsule is 4 metres x 7 metres. There are 28 capsules.

    It takes around half an hour to complete a revolution.

    At night it is all lit up.

    Singapore Flyer

    by antistar Updated Apr 10, 2015

    When it was built, the Singapore Flyer was the highest Ferris Wheel in the world. It remains now second only to the High Roller, a mere 2.6 meters taller, in Las Vegas. It's a good 30 meters taller than the London Eye. There are 28 capsules on the wheel, and each capsule can hold 28 passengers. The capsules move continuously, but slowly, and take about 30 minutes to go full circle.

    Taller than London Eye

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For around $30SD you can see bird’s eye view of Singapore for 30 minutes on Singapore High Flyer. It is Singapore answer to the London Eye but taller. The Singapore High Flyer is 165 meter high. They say on a clear day you could see Malaysia and Indonesia, we didn’t all we saw was Singapore and that’s good enough.

    come & chill 165 meters above the city

    by theguardianangel Written Dec 26, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We finalized our few last hours in the Singapore before heading in Malaysia and thought of visiting the Singaporean Flyer. It's a must see tourist attraction since it's nestled within the attractive view of the Marina Bay aside from having the title as the world's largest giant observation wheel which surpassed the London Eye and the Star of Nanchang in China.

    What's really amazing here is the capsule which is UV protected for the passenger's comfort and also its capability to accommodate 28 people! amazing right!? It will be a great experience if you can have a 360 degrees view of the city. The SG flyer will never fail to provide you various options with shopping, entertainment and dining experiences! The SG flight experience costs 30 SGD for 30 minutes. Opens daily 830-1030pm.

    Unfortunately, we weren't able to ride the flyer due to a long line of passengers at 10am! So we just roamed around the Marina bay. But we were able to have a closer look of the capsule since before coming at the entrance of the flyer, they have a displayed capsule outside.

    Honestly, I enjoyed the view outside the flyer. We sat on a bench overlooking the splendid Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort while a wedding photo shoot was being held infront of us.

    by arianne_1504 Written Jul 23, 2011

    At 165m off the ground, the Flyer presents fantastic views of Singapore, especially Marina Bay and what will be the new Botanic Gardens.

    There are a range of shops and restaurants on the ground, including the Fish Spa.

    Check out their website for special flight details.

    Like what i've said, the singapore flyer has 28 self contained capsules that can accomodate up to 28 people maximum per capsule and the average time for each rotation is about 37 minute and while riding inside, you will not feel cramped if you are a company of 10 persons or less and if you feel dizzy while standing and seeing the views outside, you can sit at the chair in the middle. the capsule have a 360 degree field view so you can savor the assorted sights around singapore for the whole 37 minutes. Taking the Singapore Flyer ride is definitely a nice experience.

    Full Butler Sky Dining from S$249 per couple (having a set meal at night for a couple with a butler and having 2 rotations on the flyer instead of one, riding in the Special Dining Capsule)

    VIP Signature Cocktail Flight S$69.00 (adult) S$48.30 (child) S$55.20 (seniors): having unlimited assorted cocktails for the adults (alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks) and mocktails (for the kid, definitely non alcoholic) for one turn of 27 minutes.

    Singapore Flyer (inside the complex)

    by machomikemd Updated May 27, 2011

    more tips around the complex. Although the main attraction here is the Flyer, they also have other activities around the complex like the Mini Museum about the Flyer located at the entrance to the Flyer at the ground floor, the Flight Experience ( a simulated airplane ride), Kenko Reflexology & Fish Spa (of hich the creepy little fishes will eat dead skin around your legs), Ultimate Drive (a driving simulator) which all have separate entrance fees. They also have assorted dining and shopping activities inside the complex and don't forget the huge souvenir shops located at the second level just after exiting the Flyer ride.

    Singapore Flyer

    by robertgaz Updated Mar 5, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Singapore Flyer is one of the newest attractions in town and from the top you can see as far as Indonesia and Malaysia.

    At 165m high, the Singapore Flyer is (or maybe was) the world's largest observation wheel.

    There are 28 capsules about the size of a small bus and each of them can take a maximum of 28 people.

    We went in the morning of a weekday and were lucky enough to have the whole capsule to ourselves.

    You can see the progress of construction of the new Integrated Resort , the CBD, Marina Bay area and the Benjamin Sheares Bridge.

    The 30 min ride normally costs S$29.50 but I was able to get a 15% corporate discount through the very helpful imstress.

    There's also a wide range of shops, restaurants, facilities and other activities nearby.

    Opening Hours
    Daily Flights: 8.30am - 10.30pm
    Ticket Sales: 8.00am - 10.00pm

    Singapore Flyer View from 165m It's a long way from the top City skyline City skyline

    Bird’s Eye View from Singapore Flyer

    by Amar_kirale Written Mar 25, 2010

    Singapore flyer is the best place to take a bird’s eye view of Singapore. It gives you a panoramic view of the city. Formula 1 track passes by Singapore flyer. It gives a breath taking view of the huge skyscrapers, Marina Bay, Floating Theatre, Esplanade Garden, ships sailing in the sea, city skyline, etc.

    You also get a lot of information about the Singapore through the radio provided to you while entering the flyer. Beneath the giant wheel of the flyer is the eco park. They have created a forest. Pond inside the park has lots of colorful fishes and turtles. You can also pick-up some souvenirs from the boutiques in the complex.

    Singapore Flyer

    by Henrik_rrb Updated Nov 9, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The world's biggest observation wheel will take you 165 meters up in the air, and give you an amazing view over Singapore.
    My dear girlfriend opted to take me here on the eve of the National Day of Singapore, where we would look out over the fantastic fireworks while we were sipping on the champagne included in champagne tour.

    Unfortunately the organizers failed to take us up in time, so the fireworks were seen from the ground, and the champagne we got afterwards in the lounge.
    Not that I complained though. The 30-minute-ride in the wheel was truly fantastic, and most of the time you have the best view over the city.
    The wheel move so slowly that you really don't notice it, and during the one round you'll be able to see all sides possible of Singapore.

    We took the evening ride, but I would think that the day trip is fantastic too.

    Prices are okay, going from 29,50 singapore dollar (16 euro), when just the ride is included. A champagne ride is instead from 69 S$ and up.
    The wheel has been up since March 2008 and took 2,5 years to build. Just 4,5 month after its opening the ticket sales passed one million riders. Just amazing!

    On special occasions they are also making special trips, as during the Formula 1 race on the 28th of September this year.
    Although I must say that they exagerated quite much... Paying S$250 (125 euro) for a 30 minute-ride during the race...?? Really...? And then the fee to enter the race area isn't included either. If you want the champagne to flow freely you just double the sum and you're in...

    My trip on the National Day was one of the best things I did during my 2-weeks-stay. The view was just amazing and the setting was really romantic.
    In the end the organizers also gave us a full refund, a new champagne tour, plus free champagne, beer and strawberrys in the lounge since they had failed to get us up in time.

    Tickets can be booked online and then picked up at the wheel on the day of take off. Make sure to be there 30 minutes before scheduled take off so you don't miss it.

    The Singapore Flyer Fantastic fireworks. The National Day-scene. Skyscrapers in the business district Me and my dear girlfriend.

    The worlds highest ferris wheel.

    by cachaseiro Written Jan 31, 2009

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you thought the london eye was the biggest ferris wheel in the world then you are wrong.
    Singapore beat in 2008 with the Singapore flyer which is 165 meters tall and overlooks Singapore harbour.
    It has had some problems the first year though and was closed down for repair whan i was there in december 2008, but it's up and running as i am writing this, so if you are not afraid of hights then this might be what you are looking for.
