I did a 24-hour Singapore Stopover on my way through and had to visit the new Singapore Flyer, the world's biggest ferris wheel - sorry, "moving observation platform". I'd been on some big ferris wheels before and was pleased to see this one had very large and stable observation cabins.They easily fit a couple of dozen people, but while we were there, just 8 or so. the Flyer revolves very slowly so that you hardly feel you are moving. The views are spectacular, across the whole of Singapore city and the impressive port (container ships everywhere). We got a great view of some of the new architectural art being built in the city - the durian-inspired buildings, the Marina Mandarin which sports what looks like a giant ark atop three towers, a helix bridge said to be the world's first curved bridge; and a still-under-construction events centre featuring outstanding curved glass domes.
The Flyer was a great novelty on the upward flight, but the downward part went a little slowly for my 9-year-old son. I was in no rush, and I appreciated the air-conditioning.
The Singapore Flyer does sightseeing during the day and dining platforms in the evenings. Worth a visit even if you're on a short stopover.

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!

… Boarding the all-glass capsule that slowly ascends from ground level to an altitude of nearly 200 metres to afford 360-degree views of Singapore and even into the distance parts of Malaysia and Indonesia.… the Flyer also offers a Champagne Flight with Moët and Chandon champagne and a plate of strawberries and chocolate – really romantic.
After a trip on the Flyer, you can try flying a Jumbo Jet in the flight simulator which can be found in the Flyer complex. It is an exhilarating experience and any budding pilot can choose from over 2000 airports and a myriad of flight destinations. Great fun!

Booked a cocktail flight and it's worth spending extra money as you get everything exclusive.
Exclusive reception in the Flyer lounge which means no queues. Staff escort you to the Flyer upstairs exclusively again in a separate line from the public and you also have exclusive themed capsules which is very romantic for couples. Views are spectacular and amazing. Worth a visit.

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!

Interesting and engaging exhibits, and good resources for national education!

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.
