The Singapore Flyer, a giant observation wheel that features brilliant engineering breakthroughs a world apart from the traditional ferris wheel, is set to be Asia's most visible iconic visitor attraction. It will provide breathtaking, panoramic views of Singapore and beyond.

    I've got my family up in the flyer during last weekend, I like it as it wasn't crowded or jammed packed with tourist. We board the flyer around 5pm. In the capsule there's 12 pax (4 kids, 6 adults), so we get to move around and have space viewing at all angles. The kids love it, exciting and fascinated to see Singapore overview, but as for me it's no big deals as my office is high up on the 30th floor and yeas i can see the same view but not window view standing right down where you can see the ground! ;)

    If you have the chance why not go for it, if not it doesn't matter. :)

    Buying the tickets were simple. The route to get to the fly took some navigation, from the second level, you have to pass through some bag checking via a scanner.

    After going through, you have to go up another level before finally waiting for the capsule. Board needs to be fast despite the slow moving wheel. I don't know if they would cater for the elderly and the not so able-body people.

    The experience in the capsule was both exhilarating and frightening. It is scary for people who have acrophobia. The night view does help to reduce the fear of height.

    As the lighting used is neon blue, taking any photographs inside the capsule will make them blue. It's good to be able to view the IR being built in progress. Looking at the roads intersections gives a different feeling when viewed from a height.

    Overall, it is a great feeling to be in there and watch part of Singapore full of buildings and water.

      Just had my very first ride at Singapore Flyer yesterday.

      Though it was Friday night, the place was surprisengly NOT crowded, so 10 of us could monopolize one capsule. (actually, a couple after us monopolized one capsule all by themselves!)

      As "claud" has mentioned, yes, you need to go through a security check, just like boarding a commercial airplane. After taking a group photo in front of capsule mockup, we boarded the real one.

      The view of Singapore skyscraper was really magnificent, and breath-taking. Luckily, the floor was not transparent, and each capsule had 2 benches for us to sit down, even my colleague with acrophobia (afraid of height) managed to keep her cool and enjoyed the fantastic view.

      I personally suggest those with acrophobia to try Singapore Flyer at night; as you won't see or feel much height, because of darkness. You won't be able to see the space between your capsule and the ground; instead, you will be mesmerized by the sparkling skyscraper.

      I tried to take some photos with SLR, but you will do better with a tripod, as "claud" recommended earlier. Many of my photos ended up blurred or blue-tinted reflection from the capsule's glass.

      The ride was over in 30 minutes. I will definitely come back for a few more times; next time, with my 2 kids during daytime. ;-)
