Singapore Flyer is one of the must visit tourist attraction in Singapore. Standing at a height of 165m, it is one of the largest observation wheel in the world. Singapore Flyer is designed by Dr. Kisho Kurokawa & DP Architects and officially open to the public in year 2008.
Do you know each capsule in Singapore Flyer measures 4m x 7m with an interior area of 28 square metres and one capsule can carry 28 passengers.

With MRT – Singapore Flyer is easily accessible by circle line (orange). Alight at Promenade MRT, use Exit A and follow the pedestrian signs. You will be able to see the great giant wheel when you come out of the MRT station.
This is my first experience at Singapore Flyer. Well, it took me 7 years to finally visit Singapore Flyer since it’s launch. We bought our tickets from Singapore Flyer booking website. When we reached Singapore Flyer, we collected our flight tickets from the ticket booth at level 1 (entrance).

Before reaching the place where we board the capsules, we went through a simple security check and Journey of Dreams. Journey of Dreams showcases the Singapore Story and some background information of the Singapore Flyer. There are so many engaging multimedia showcases that you can play with. Pretty sci-fi right? There are no time restrictions here so you can spend all your time here. Kids will love it.
Just when we reached the place to board the capsules, a staff verified our tickets again. Like other attractions places, we got our photo taken by the staff and given a photo tag. If you are interested, you will be able to purchase the photos after the Singapore Flyer ride.
We waited patiently for our turn to board the capsule. One by one, we stepped into the capsule following the guidance from the staff. The capsule is clean and spacious and you can have a clear view of the outer surrounding. The capsule started to move slowly and without knowing, we are already quite high up in the sky. It’s pretty amazing how smooth the journey is. For those who “chicken” out at heights, there is nothing to worry about.
We started taking photos once we are up in the sky. The scenery is beautiful right? We are fascinated.
165m is around 42 storey high. That’s how high Singapore Flyer is!
There is an audio recording explaining each of the attractions that you can see from Singapore Flyer. We are so engrossed in the photo taking that we only realized this after a while.
So after 30 minutes of rotation, we finished our ride in Singapore Flyer. It’s quite a pleasant experience. We are thinking to ride Singapore Flyer again at night to experience the night view. After the ride, you may also consider visiting the restaurants in Singapore Flyers for lunch/dinner.
This concludes our moving experience in Singapore Flyer. How do you find Singapore Flyer? Share your comments below.
