The Singapore Flyer, proudly standing at a towering height of 165m, boasts of its gigantic structure, giving it the honors of being the largest Giant Observation Wheel in the world. This giant observation wheel offers 360-degree city views, a panorama that stretches to parts of Malaysia and Indonesia on a clear day.

It was publicly announced in September 2005, making it known to the world that they were about to hit Singapore shores with a big bang. Three years later in 2008, they held their grand official opening along Raffles Avenue, where the wheel stood - literally and figuratively - as one of Asia's biggest tourist attraction.

Las Vegas' High Roller may have since stolen its 'World's Biggest Observation Wheel' title, but Singapore's 165m-tall Ferris wheel continues to serve up a gob-smacking panorama. On a clear day, the 30-minute ride will have you peering out over the Colonial District, CBD and Marina Bay, the high-rise housing sprawl to the east and out to the ship-clogged South China Sea. The wheel's construction is documented in an onsite multimedia display, Journey of Dreams. Purchase tickets online for a modest discount.

Highlights

  • Journey of Dreams – Before boarding the observation deck, various interactive and colorful exhibits tell the story of Singapore culture and how the massive Flyer developed. 
  • Rainforest Discovery – A mini rainforest environment installed with tropical trees, plants, and a pond filled with fish, sits right under the Flyer.
  • Giant Observation Wheel – The 165 meter high Singapore Flyer takes you on a 32 minute journey to see some of Singapore tallest Skyscrapers and latest landscapes. You’ll be able to see the Supertrees and domes at Gardens by the Bay, the famous Marina Bay Sands hotel, as well as the iconic lotus archetectual of the ArtScience Museum.

What to See & Do

When dusk falls

The prettiest time for a spin on the Singapore Flyer is at sunset, when the skyscrapers are covered in a golden glow. As night falls, the darkness is illuminated by the buildings’ twinkling lights.

Butler service as you eat

For a really special occasion, indulge in the world’s first full butler sky dining experience, which includes a four-course menu, personalised butler service, wine pairing options and of course, amazing skyline views.

Gear up for more thrills

Try Singapore’s first 6D motion ride at the state-of-the-art XD Theatre. Or head to Flight Experience, for a shot at the first real 737 simulator. Both these attractions are on the second floor of the Singapore Flyer terminal building.

Other Activities at Singapore Flyer

  • Duck & Hippo Tours – A vehicle that can travel by land and water.
  • Ultimate Drive – Speed around the track used by Formula One drivers.
  • Flight Experience – Test yourself on a flight simulator.
  • Kenko Reflexology & Fish Spa – Llittle fish nibble away on the dead skin of your feet.
  • XD Theatre – A 6D theatre thrill ride.

The Capacity and Structure of Singapore Flyer

'Capsules', as they are called, make for the foundation that gives the flyer its structure. Each capsule is big enough to accommodate 28 persons, piecing together nicely, to form this monstrous marvel with a capacity that holds a whopping total of 784 passengers.

A ride on the Flyer would last an estimated 30 minutes - long enough for you take in and admire the beautiful lush scenery, yet not too long that your mind starts to wonder about what you'll be having for your next meal.

The Bird's-Eye-View from The Flyer

Anyone who has had the privilege of being on board this gigantic observaton wheel would tell you that the view you get from up above is beyond exuberating. While basking in the allure of luxury, style and comfort of the Flyer, you'll get a panoramic view of the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort, Collyer Quay, Raffles Place (Singapore's main Central Business District), The Fullerton Singapore (probably the most prestigious 5-star hotel you'll find in this country), Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay (our very own performance arts hall), the Merlion Park (an iconic 8.6m tall tourist attraction), the Asian Civilizations Museum, a popular nightlife line-up which includes Boat Quay, Clarke Quay and Robertson Quay; Fort Canning Park, and saving the best for last, the Floating Stadium - known as the world's largest floating platform performance stage on water.

As you can see, a ride on the Flyer is practically a 360-degree bird's-eye-view of some of the famous sights and sounds of Singapore - all summed up in a nutshell while taking flight on this S$240 million rotating wheel.

And as breath-taking as the experience may be, don't forget to take a tour round the vicinity. You can get close to Mother Nature by taking a stroll through the Yakult Rainforest - a landscaped rainforest built within the grounds of the Flyer with the purpose of creating a relaxing atmosphere amidst the hustling and bustling city life.

Dining and Shopping Options

If you understand true Singaporean culture, I'm sure you'll notice that we have two very distinct pastimes - shopping and eating! At the Flyer, you'll be able to treat yourself to retail therapy with shops selling branded watches; crocodile skin products, sunglasses, and souvenirs to give you an even more memorable experience.

The Singapore Flyer knows us all too well. It's amazing the number of food outlets there are in this place. You'll find names such as Seafood Paradise, Ya Kun Kaya Toast, O'Learys & Popeye's - popular American favorites and Bayview Tandoor - an authentic Indian restaurant.

Singapore Food Trail, located at level one of the Singapore Flyer, is another ideal place to hunt for your favourite Singapore Food all under one roof. Beside the popular Chicken Rice, Fried Hokkien Mee, Fried Carrot Cake and Satay, you can also try out other local delights such as Fried Oyster Omelette, Prawn Noodle, Barbecue Seafood and Beef Noodle.

Tips

Hawker Food Court – Like all shopping centers and popular venues in Singapore, there is a hawker food court on the ground floor. It cheap, there’s variety, and most importantly, it’s quality asian food.

Reviews by visitors

Excellent views over the CBD, Marina Bay, Gardens By the Bay, urban areas and ships at anchor offshore.

This was my second visit to the Singapore Flyer, went today around 10am - there was no queue - purchased my ticket and was onboard a few minutes later. I was lucky to have a capsule to myself making it easier to see from all points.

I think I was lucky as a tour group arrived a few minutes later which would have extended the wait time.

The ride takes about 30 minutes...views are good as you rotate - look down upon pit lane and then starting line of the Singapore F1 track, over to Gardens By the Bay and the Marina Bay Sands Hotel and other locations mentioned above.

The view at the top of the rotation is great - next time I will visit at night to see the city lights.

Recommend this attraction....it's a revolution!

~PAC6917

This was just a cool experience, and I was fortunate enough to have money on me at the time to check it out. I shared my cart with an Ozzy girl I met from my hostel and 3 Japanese business men conducting work/pleasure together. Classy place to hang out.

~Richard E

No value for money (30 SGD per person). Ok, it is nice view but that's it. You can get better pictures elsewhere. Ride takes about 30 min and that is it. I would not go there again. Nothing specila Too pricey.

~Katarina M

I thought I would get bored with the 30-minute ride on this giant ferris wheel but NO. It was an excellent way to see a panoramic view of Singapore. Try to go when there is less crowd and ask for a carriage that is empty for yourselves so you can walk around inside and take good shots. I enjoyed it!

~Celestial G

Had an opportunity to ride the Singapore Flyer with my boys, my brother and sis-in-law and we got the whole cabin to ourselves ! 6 of us !

It can accommodate up to 23 pax. The whole ride took about 30 minutes and the view was amazing ! You can take as many photos as you wish as the ride is slow and comfortable.

~WendyPenang_M

If you have little time to spare in sightseeing, this is a must to do especially in the evening when all the lights are on from everywhere your sight can reach. The line is fast and the carts are huge that the kids with us can run around. Great photo op venue

~Melissado

This wheel must be one of the largest in the world, and so of course you get great views of all sides of Singapore, especially near the top of the ride. Of course, time your visit for when the weather is good. The ride is slow enough for you to take good photos but short enough not to get boring. There can be a queue at busy times, booking online may help you avoid some (but not all) of the queue.

~thoughtfulpebble

I have been on the flyer a few years ago during the day, I think it's a lot better at night. This time we had the Singapore Slings so we we're in the Moet Capsule. Drink was mostly ice, definitely not worth the extra money!

~Megan D

Singapore Flyer is an awesome experience. The view from each angle of flight is amazing. There is no height sickness or fear involved. So just jump in even if you are faint at heart. I vouch, you will love the experience. 40 minutes ride will feel like ended soon.

~AnilKumarPorwal

this attraction gives so much view of city from way up.. The ride is one of a kind, and you wont feel claustrophobic as the cabin is ample with wide windows providing you a panoramic view of the great city..its also easily accessible as its just a few blocks from Marina bay and is part of SIA hop on hop off stops..

a definite must have on your itinerary when visiting Singapore

~mrotero8

It is a good experience to have been up in Singapore flyer. View of the city was fine from up there, visiting day time should be fine too. Prepare enough time to enjoy the at this place for if the queue is empty then you are lucky but otherwise there'll be a long queue.

~Sakuntla C

This attraction was included in our Stopover Holiday package so we decided to use it. We were expecting queues like the London Eye but there were no queues and only 4 of us in the compartment. It was a very enjoyable experience.

~Kay C

A great flyer. You can see the whole of Singapore from above. Located near Marina. Good opportunity to take photo. Organized. Heard that it is better at night. However we rode it at daytime and it was fun

~Rabiul H

Singapore from the flyer is a treat. Big comfortable cabins.... You will enjoy this ride not for thrill but only getting some good snaps and a lovely view of the bay, marina Bay Sands hotel and the very green Singapore.... Organised.... Tickets avble at the venue....

~vibha21

Wonderful view of city and port from the top,the wheels spins gently so need to worry about nausea or any such thing.

~john_shekhar

One of the highlights of our Family Holiday was being atop the 165 meter giant ferrous wheel called the Singapore Flyer !! My entire family enjoyed the same. The whole breath-taking ride took us exactly 30 minutes. We could see the whole of Singapore which covered beautiful sites like the F1 Track, the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, The Gardens by the Bay and more. The slow and yet safe observatory wheel was as smooth as silk as it went one complete round. The Wheel encourages a great ambiance - from a romantic dinner especially on Valentines day to a memorable family experience right through the year. The safety and security anywhere in Singapore is simply impeccable and very encouraging especially for new travelers to the Island nation. The various packages which includes either a meal on the ride, a champagne bottle or just memories with family & friends!!

So be there to experience life with a 360 degree view !!

~WDL

The Singapore Flyer offers 360 degree views over Singapore and Gardens at the Bay. Entering the parking area does not prepare one for the charming garden, surrounded by a variety of restaurants.

Entrance to the Flyer is expensive but well worth it for the stunning views from above. The flyer also offers a good photo opportunities for aerial views of the bay and surrounding areas.

~Fransiolemtru P

Please DONOT miss out on this brilliant attraction in Singapore. It has gorgeous views on every side and the 30-minute ride is totally worth the time and the money. The Gardens by the bay on one end, the financial district on the other end and the Hotel Marina Bay Sands on the third, it will be the perfect place for clicking the Singapore skyline.

~Kajal A

This was one of the best attractions in Singapore. You get a very good view of Singapore.Almost 10-20 people will be accomadated in one Flyer Car which is very spacious. Enjoyed the view of the Financial District of Singapore. The view will be more good when it reaches the highest point of the Flyer.

Charges are - 33 Singapore Dollar per person.

~PraveenPotti

Singapore Flyer was included in our city tour ,first we thought it would be a waste of time but as we entered it we felt we would had lost if we skipped it .our flyer trip was over very soon as we just clicked a lot of photos we able to view the whole Singapore from it .

~ajitc1974

Loved the Singapore Flyer. 

Only in Singapore for four days and this was one of the best ways we found to 'see' Singapore. The flyer takes about half an hour to complete the circle giving plenty of time for quality photos and video of the city and coast.

The hop-on-hop-off bus stops here so it is easy to get to. The Singapore Flyer site also has resturants (including a 'street food' market underneath) as well as other great experiences (3D ride and Flight Simulator).

~John B

I'm a person with a fear of heights, but since it's my sons' first trip in SG i wanted him to experience The Flyer even if i find it scary... and a bit expensive (S$33) for only a short ride haha! ;) Yes, it's a nice slow-moving observation deck but if you are someone like me who loves to take photos, you will find the glass panel of the deck unfriendly coz it prevents you from taking clear pictures. Plus, before i knew it the ride was over in under 30mins hehe! Photography is always my primary concern when i go to places. So if you are only after taking pics and on a tight budget and would have to choose between this ride and the Sands SkyPark, i would suggest the latter. You can stay for a longer period, enjoy the great view while sipping a cup of coffee.. and most esp. take snapshots of SG's skyline and entrance ticket is a bit cheaper (S$23).. hehe! For me, best time to go up the park is in the afternoon. Great opportunity to catch the sunset... :)

~Marilyn P

The view from the top is awesome, even though we visited during noon time. could not find time to visit during evenings. From Promenade MRT, it is a short walk. The Hop on hop off buses go directly at the entrance. Opted for the regular ticket as you can walk in any time.

Once inside you can walk around the capsule for taking photos.It was very spacious with around 10 more people with us. Even those who are afraid of heights can try this as the movement is very slow ( it takes 30 mts for each round) unlike a cable car ride.

Worth the money!!
