    Excellent

    Singapore Flyer is worth its money. Not everyday do you get the opportunity to Singapore from a bird’s eye view (different angle) and the photos captured are spectacular every time. The speed is slow and you barely feel it moving (suitable for acrophobic people). I would highly recommend this attraction if you’re not a budget.

    Fantastic attraction

    Our trip started visiting the major landmark of the city- The Singapore Flyer. Ticket for three of us cost $ 87 which was little expensive but the 30-minute ride was amazing. We took a normal ride and the flyer moves very slowly. It allows you to capture the glimpses of Marina Bay Sands, the track used by Formula One drivers and Garden by the bays. We spend only 45 minutes there but the attraction remains mind-blowing. The best time to visit the flyer is at night allowing you to view the entire city glittering with light.

    Fantastic attraction

    Singapore Flyer provided a simply breathtaking view of Singapore, especially during the sunset. The price was on the expensive side, but for the view and amazing photos captured, it was well worth it. Great for a romantic date.

    It was good

    For all its hype and being a major landmark, I found the Singapore Flyer very underwhelming for the price. We didn’t enjoy the Journey of Dreams much, it just seemed like they were trying to justify the high ticket price. You’d be much better of taking the cable car to Sentosa and back if you want to get a really stunning view of Singapore. If you do decide to go, then sunset would probably be the best time to view the cityscape.

    The ride itself doesn’t take long, its about 30 minutes long. It’s all about the view, which was superb! My only regret was not timing the ride well or we could have experienxed the sunset!

    Fantastic attraction

    Contrary to popular belief, this is not a typical Ferris Wheel ride as it allows you to have dinner with wine while riding the iconic Singapore Flyer. However, I only opted for the normal ride as it was economical but the experience was exhilarating. There is also a museum which you actually walk through before you ride the flyer and you can also buy a souvenir coin, if you want.

    The Singapore Flyer reminds me of the London Eye. It provides great views of the city while slowly going around in a circle, a ferris wheel in slow motion. Unfortunately, it is located close to Marina Bay Sands, which has an even more spectacular view from its rooftop restaurants and infinity pool, so you might prefer to just catch the view from there.

    Fantastic attraction

    Good view from the top. Standing high 165-meter-high, the Flyer is Asia’s answer to the London Eye. There’s a reason why TIME has name it as one of the must do in Singapore. I have been here during the day, and enjoyed the view. I recommend the dining experience in the capsule in the evening and catch the sunset. Absolutely stunning and worthwhile!

    You can get a bird eye view of whole Singapore city from the flyer. The view is stunning and pleasant especially at night.

    The Singapore Flyer is a huge Ferris wheel (165mt high) situated adjacent to the Gardens by the Bay and is well worth a visit in my opinion. You will get some fantastic birds-eye views of the city and the surrounding gardens and the astonishing Marina Bay Sands resort. You can even splash out and treat yourself to dinner, cocktails, champagne or high tea in a VIP carriage.

    It was good

    It is one of the main attractions in Singapore offering some stunning panoramic view of the cosmopolitan cityscape. It takes about half hour for a circle to finish and my suggestion is to take the tour at evening around sunset for the spectacular view of the skyline it has to offer. You also get to see the Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay, Waterfront promenade from the flyer. Good experience and good chance for some aerial photography.
