What to explore at Singapore Flyer?

10 Great Reasons to Visit

1. It’s the world’s largest observation wheel (outside United States).

Standing at a stunning 165m, Singapore Flyer is the height of a 42-storey building – that’s some 30 metres taller than the famed London Eye. Taking a flight on this S$240 million wheel is a one-of-a-kind experience you wouldn’t want to miss.

2. It’s the only place to see Singapore’s magnificent cityscape.

As the wheel turns, you’ll be treated to a visual 360° feast of iconic and historical landmarks and views from the Marina Bay to the Singapore River, Raffles Place, Merlion Park, Empress Place and the Padang. There is no other place in Singapore that offers these breathtaking, magnificent day and glittering night views.

3. You’ll get to see a video technology that is Asia’s first.

Check out the first inflated PufferSphere using internal projection in Asia at our brand new attraction – Journey of Dreams. It projects the transformation of a dream into the icons that are Singapore and Singapore Flyer. Definitely something you wouldn’t want to miss!.

4. You’ll get to feast on famous local dishes.

Seafood Paradise @ Flyer, a popular restaurant among locals, serves up signature local dishes such as chilli crab, butter crab, cereal prawns and drunken prawns. Enjoy these authentic local dishes alongside innovative culinary creations by our local chefs. Not to be missed is Singapore’s first 1960s-themed food street – Singapore Food Trail, which serve up a wide selection of local hawker delights.

5. You can get to enjoy an iconic drink on an iconic attraction.

An all-time classic – the Singapore Sling is synonymous to Singapore and one of the nation’s best-known cocktails. Now you can look forward to a hand-shaken and chilled bona fide Singapore Sling served only onboard Singapore Flyer with the Singapore Sling flight, and complement the indulgence with lovely city sights seen from different altitudes.

6. You’ll get to experience a 6D motion ride – a first in Singapore.

Gear up for a thrilling 6D motion ride experience at XD Theater – a state-of-the-art 10-seater attraction – a first in Singapore.

7. You’ll experience urban nature.

Right in the centre of the atrium is a lush, tropical rainforest. The cascading water displays, streams, rocky outcrops and pond fuse together naturally to offer a picturesque landscape for photo taking.

8. You’ll be able to experience Singapore’s first real flight simulator.

For the first time in Asia, you can fly a real 737 simulator! Flight Experience, Singapore’s first real flight simulator, offers you a unique opportunity to fly a real flight simulator – exactly the same as pilots use for flight training – with more than 20,000 worldwide airports and using the same operating procedures as the real airlines. No experience necessary as full instruction will be provided.

9. Your toes will be tickled by fishes.

On Level 2 is a fish foot spa – that’s right – it’s a spa where Doctor Fishes (“Garra Rufa”) work their magic on your feet. These fish, imported from Turkey, have healing properties and will give you a pedicure you won’t forget.

10. For some good Feng Shui.

With Singapore Flyer’s 28 capsules and each capsule’s maximum capacity of 28 persons, the evident figure of 28 means “double prosperity” or “easy to prosper” in Cantonese. Swing to some good Feng Shui onboard Singapore Flyer – the largest wheel of Fortune in its own rights.

This Ferris wheel is one of the tallest observation wheels in the world. See the amazing Singapore skyline (best time is at sundown) then grab some cocktails at the Flyer Lounge after.

Make sure the weather is good or you won't see to much. I thought it was a little pricey for only one trip around

Best flier to see the city. Its a slow moving ride. So slow that you can hardly feel the movement. Some people would reserve a whole cable car and eat there! How amazing.

The tallest Ferris wheel in the world, even higher than the London Eye! Although a much-anticipated part of our Singapore vacation, the actual experience was a bit underwhelming. The Ferris wheel moves so slowly that it started to get boring after a while. They packed so many of us into each cabin that not everyone had a place to sit. Yes, there were gorgeous views of the cityscape along the bay, but the windows were so dirty and full of handprints that any attempts at photos were pretty much foiled by smudges on the glass. We did enjoy the Historic Food Trail afterwards for Hainanese chicken rice, oyster omelet, and a snow ball that was akin to ice kacang. The oyster omelet was way too oily, but the other two dishes were pretty good.
