The Singapore Flyer is Asia’s largest observation wheel and stands at 165m tall. From the top, you can see views of Marina Bay as well as surrounding areas and out to sea. It was opened in 2008 after two and a half years of construction. The London Eye and Eiffel Tower played a big part in its design by Dr. Kisho Kurokawa of Japan and DP Architects. The capsules have an air cooling system as well as UV windows to protect from the sun and the heat.
Location of Singapore Flyer
30 Raffles Ave – The nearest MRT station is The Promenade which is an easy 5 minute walk to the Flyer. You will need to take Exit A and then follow the blue signs.
The price for the Singapore Flight is S$33 for adults (13 and older) and S$21 for children (3-12). Children under 3 ride for free.
There are other types of experiences available as well but we only did the standard ride.
The ticket office is open 8am to 10pm and the Flyer operates from 8.30am to 10.30pm.
Each capsule can hold 28 people but we were lucky enough to have a whole one to ourselves. I have no idea how we manged that 🙂
It takes around 30 minutes for a rotation so plenty of time to take in the view and get some great photos.
Here are some of our trip on the Singapore Flyer:
These photos were taken back in 2009 and Singapore’s skyline has changed quite a lot. Can you see what is missing?
We really enjoyed the experience and would recommend it if you are in Singapore.
