Sunday 2nd March 2008 and the first day of operation. We had booked our tickets for the Inaugural Flight over the internet about 3 weeks before and were looking forward to going on the "World’s Largest Wheel."
Everything was very efficient and quick from the moment you arrived to the moment you left in a taxi. We were lucky to have a relatively clear day which allowed us a great view of Singapore. Around the base of the Flyer is a rainforest complete with a little walking trail, waterfalls and hot volcanoes and springs, all adding to the entire experience. There is also a souvenir shop and various food outlets around the complex.
Access for people with disabilities or in wheel chairs is also possible as there are lifts, and the doors to the capsule are wide. The wheel also moves slowly enough to allow easy entry and exit for everyone.

Thank you and your team for a job well done!
It has been a wonderful and awesome experience for the birthday gals. Your staff have been most accommodating and patient with our requests. No words could describe how grateful I am for the set-up. And this experience and memories will stay with us for a very long time.
Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Kudos to your team!

I cannot recommend highly enough a visit to Singapore Flyer. My husband and I booked a Champagne Flight which came with a glass of champagne each, some chocolate-dipped strawberries and some gorgeous chocolates. It was great! The capsule rotates very, very slowly, and you get to enjoy the wonderful experience.

My hubby booked 2 tickets for a Signature Cocktail ride as a surprise for my birthday in August. The capsule being used for this ride is their VIP capsule, which is much more classy than the usual capsules. Not sure if the rest had a sound system but mine came with a separate Bose system which added to the ambience.
He had booked for the 6.30pm ride which was supposed to be the "sunset ride" where you can witness the sunset during this time but unfortunately for us, it was cloudy on the day we took the ride but to be fair, I can't fault anyone for this. Also because it is end August, we get a bird's eye glimpse of some sections of the F1 track! Singapore's latest attraction, Gardens by the Bay, is also visible.
The overall experience was fantastic and I wouldn't be too surprised if numerous marriage proposals have been made inside the VIP capsule. This ride should be experienced at least once in your life.

I would like to thank Joseph Ravindran Christie of Flyer’s Guest Services for making our trip to Singapore Flyer a very special one. Three couples went to the Flyer to renew our wedding vows, celebrating our 25th anniversary this year. Joseph was kind and very accommodating to our requests. The morning spent at the Flyer was most enjoyable!

Very stimulating and interesting … it interacts the past and present of Singapore’s historical and cultural events. Students will be able to better understand how the Singapore Flyer works.

Purchased the extra Singapore Sling and booked a late night (about 9.30pm) trip on my honeymoon. Timing was perfect as we got a capsule to ourselves with drinks and all. Amazing trip with music and drink, would definitely recommend.
