10 Great Reasons to Visit

10 great reasons to visit Singapore’s most iconic attraction – Singapore Flyer.


It’s the world’s largest observation wheel (outside United States).

Standing at a stunning 165m, Singapore Flyer is the height of a 42-storey building – that’s some 30 metres taller than the famed London Eye. Taking a flight on this S$240 million wheel is a one-of-a-kind experience you wouldn’t want to miss.

It’s the only place to see Singapore’s magnificent cityscape.

As the wheel turns, you’ll be treated to a visual 360° feast of iconic and historical landmarks and views from the Marina Bay to the Singapore River, Raffles Place, Merlion Park, Empress Place and the Padang. There is no other place in Singapore that offers these breathtaking, magnificent day and glittering night views.

You’ll get to see a video technology that is Asia’s first.

Check out the first inflated PufferSphere using internal projection in Asia at our brand new attraction – Journey of Dreams [12]. It projects the transformation of a dream into the icons that are Singapore and Singapore Flyer. Definitely something you wouldn’t want to miss!.

You’ll get to feast on famous local dishes.

Sky View Pavilion [13], the restaurant that allows you to savour the best of local Chinese cuisine, serves up signature local dishes such as chilli crab, cereal prawns and authentic dim sum. Enjoy these authentic dishes alongside innovative culinary creations by our talented chefs.

You can get to enjoy an iconic drink on an iconic attraction.

An all-time classic – the Singapore Sling is synonymous to Singapore and one of the nation’s best-known cocktails. Now you can look forward to a hand-shaken and chilled bona fide Singapore Sling served only onboard Singapore Flyer with the Singapore Sling flight [14], and complement the indulgence with lovely city sights seen from different altitudes.

You’ll get to experience a 6D motion ride – a first in Singapore.

Gear up for a thrilling 6D motion ride experience at XD Theater [15] – a state-of-the-art 10-seater attraction – a first in Singapore.

You’ll experience urban nature.

Right in the centre of the atrium is a lush, tropical rainforest. The cascading water displays, streams, rocky outcrops and pond fuse together naturally to offer a picturesque landscape for photo taking.

You’ll be able to experience Singapore’s first real flight simulator.

For the first time in Asia, you can fly a real 737 simulator! Flight Experience, Singapore’s first real flight simulator, offers you a unique opportunity to fly a real flight simulator – exactly the same as pilots use for flight training – with more than 20,000 worldwide airports and using the same operating procedures as the real airlines. No experience necessary as full instruction will be provided.

Your toes will be tickled by fishes.

On Level 2 is a fish foot spa – that’s right – it’s a spa where Doctor Fishes (“Garra Rufa”) work their magic on your feet. These fish, imported from Turkey, have healing properties and will give you a pedicure you won’t forget.

For some good Feng Shui.

With Singapore Flyer’s 28 capsules and each capsule’s maximum capacity of 28 persons, the evident figure of 28 means “double prosperity” or “easy to prosper” in Cantonese. Swing to some good Feng Shui onboard Singapore Flyer – the largest wheel of Fortune in its own rights.
