The Singapore Flyer is a gigantic Ferris wheel erected near the shore of Marina Bay. At a total height of 165 metres, it was the World’s Largest Observation Wheel at its opening in 2008.
After 2014, this title was snatched by Las Vegas Strip’s High Roller, which is only 2.6 meters taller than the Flyer. However due to its height, visitors will be able to see amazing views of Malaysia and Indonesia on a clear day!

Approximately $250 Million was spent in the development and construction of the observation wheel, along with the other features of Singapore Flyer, such as the man-made Tropical rainforest garden surrounding it.
The observation wheel has 28 air-conditioned capsules, each of which can carry 28 passengers. The capsules are specifically mounted along the wheel’s outboard rim so as to give patrons a continuous unobstructed view. A complete cycle around the giant observation wheel lasts about 32 minutes.
On your trip, you will be able to enjoy 360° views of Singapore’s city skyline including the iconic Merlion Park, Raffles Place, Empress Place, the historic Padang and so much more! The view of the Marina Bay from one of Singapore Flyer’s capsules is a one-of-a-kind treat for guests who love Singapore’s beautiful skyline. Riding the wheel at night is a must-try for guests who want to see Singapore at its absolute best.
Apart from the observation wheel, the Singapore Flyer also has a number of other attractions. One of the more recently opened attractions is the Journey of Dreams. This attraction houses Asia’s first inflated PufferSphere – which is a device that uses internal projection technology to show a creative multimedia showcase of Singapore’s story. Other notable attractions include the XD Theater, Singapore’s first 10-seater 6D Theatre and Flight Experience, Asia’s first 737 flight simulator.
