Its Sands Skypark

Both are different experience, my view. If you have teens with you, Flyer should be more enjoyable.

Yes there not really competing attraction, both very different. If it's just views you want there others available from similar or greater height for free or significantly less money. And yes, the wheel is much more fun for kids.

Hello, the MBS Skypark is higher than the Flyer, entrance fee is slightly cheaper (though you get discount with a SQ boarding pass at the Flyer). The observation platform is much larger than the Flyer cabin.

You can stay on the platform as long as you want. You can go before dusk and enjoy the view at daylight and at night; doing this on the Flyer requires a good timing.

The MBS Skypark is subject to weather while the Flyer cabin will protect you from the rain. Also there is an audio guide in the cabin.

We chose the MBS Skywalk as it also allowed us to snoop around the hotel but also we have done the flyer type of thing in other cities.

I also liked the idea of taking my time at the observation deck and take photos as I had the time had a new camera which I wanted to try out.

MBS wins for me. Flyer is slow and the view for me is not as good.

I would advise to go for both. Both are different experience. both are good at dusk time so enjoy both on different days. My advise can save you@S$ 13 on flyer entry tickets. means you need only S$ 7 per head to sea Marina Bay sands. Due to paucity of time & last minute tiring we could not go to marina bay.

Dear Gupta PK

As I am planning to visit both, I kinda got impressed reading your reply, Could you please tell if any such combo actually exists as I cannot find it anywhere across the net, I mean the package of flyer and skywalk.

Thank you.

There s no package. I suspect what he means is if you save some money on the Flyer, you can put the savings towards buying tickets for the Observation deck at MBS.
