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.

If you like heights do it and if you don't then skip it. Awesome view from the top but it's a long wait in the line to get on it.

“Great View, well worth the cost”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

This was a great late afternoon early evening experience. We rarely buy the photos that are taken at such sites but these were spectacular,we bought the lot. The view over Singapore, Sentosa and surrounds is fabulous. We met some other travellors in our car and immediatley struck up conversations on the views and shared cameras to get it all in...the only negative... we walked from Raffles Hotel thinking it was only a few hundred meters down the road. We could see it from there and we made that estimate based on how big we thought it was... mistake.. it is huge.

“Take it or leave it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Ok enjoyed the experience but was just an average " must do experience" similar to The London eye only its 30 metres higher,which only means everywhere looks smaller because of the height. If you have somewhere better to go then i'd recommend you do that instead.

“could have been better for that price !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

A so-so attraction, hyped a lot i'd say. the least they could do is to have some sort of commentary played so visitors know what they are looking at! I heard some commentary only when our capsule was at the very top. I never got to identify the spot where they say we can see Malaysia. In any case, a family that was there in our capsule was too loud chatting, so even a commentary would not have served its purpose.
All said, no denying the fact that the Flyer is an engineering marvel
