Owner description: Singapore Flyer, the world's largest giant observation wheel, gives a 360 panoramic view of Singapore, from the fast-changing Marina Bay that is transforming by the minute, to the islands of Malaysia and Indonesia. It is the best vantage point of Singapore to see and feel the vibrancy of the beautiful and colorful city. Besides enjoying the 30-minute ride on the 165-metre tall Singapore Flyer, the exciting mix of specialty and lifestyle concept shops at the three-story Retail Terminal.

“Best view of the city's skyline”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

We went mid-week in the late morning, faced no queues . The flyer was a slight walking distance away from the nearest Bus station (10 minutes) . We wanted to visit the Flyer + collect the day passes for Singapore destinations.

The mall in which the Flyer Boarding takes place is itself very pretty.There was a Punjabi restaurant in the mall too but with buffett only. There is a museum on the way to the Flyer with a funky lighted up passway. Anyways , coming to the Singapore Flyer - the views are superb. On 1 hand the city meets the sea , with so many ships out there. And on the other some of the smartest sky scapers of Singapore, the Marina Bay Sands, The gardens by the bay , the grand prix with racing cars in it... Due to the glass cabins, photography opportunities are awesome. its a must do activity when in Singapore. Preferably in the daytime.

“Good but nothing Extraordinary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

It was a so-so experience may be because it was raining and there was too much crowd. The school holidays began and may be that was the reason.

“Flying high over Singapore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

The Singapore Flyer can be easily accessed from the Promenade MRT station.

We visited at night and had a great experience. We purchased the basic admission ticket at a cost of $33 (SGD) each although there are a lot of other packages options available.

Photos are taken of each group before getting on the ferris wheel and you have the option to buy your flyer themed photo at gift shop on the way out.

Pods are spacious and the friendly staff do not overcrowd them so there is plenty of room to move around and take photos during the 30 minutes onboard.

“Bird's eye view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Though the same concept just like the London eye, you can't beat the beautiful skyline and the clear waters of our Singapore river! Offering views of F1 night race track, barrage, MBS too!

“Not for people scared of heights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Great experience, went mid week and there was no queue, views are breathtaking, make sure you bring a map, possibly binoculars. We check the Grand Prix site which is right under the Flyer, it looked very small though. We walked to the Flyer from the Gardens by the Bay, it took us about 20 minutes via Marina Bay Sands.
