Singapore Flyer

The Singapore Flyer is a giant Ferris wheel in Singapore. Described by its operators as an observation wheel, it opened in 2008, construction having taken about 2½ years. It carried its first paying passengers on 11 February, opened to the public on 1 March, and was officially opened on 15 April.

Insider tips

Best time to go?

The Singapore Flyer is open until 10pm, and Singapore is an incredible city to see at night! From sunset onwards the city is at its most striking, yet the Flyer gets considerably less busy, perhaps because the downside is not being able to see as far.

How long does it take?

Each rotation takes 30 minutes, although you should plan to spend at least an hour at the attraction, if not longer.

Booking tickets

Tickets can be bought on-site, but online discounts are available if you decide to book in advance.

Good to know

When should I visit?

8:30AM to 10:30PM. Last entry is at 10:15PM.

How to get there

The MRT station Promenade (on the CC4 and Circle lines) is a five-minute walk from the Flyer. Alternatively, catch buses 106, 111, and 133 – get off at Temasek Avenue.

Is it expensive?

An adult ticket is S$33.

Will I need a guide?

It will definitely help. A tour could be a worthwhile investment to get the best out of the trip!

What people are saying about Singapore Flyer

★★★★★ Excellent when the time is about half a day.

We took the Green and the Orange Route tours spaced by one hour, a total of three hours. We had only half a day to take a tour. For such short time, this was a great tour for me with my family.

★★★★★ O.k. Headphones would b good to counteract 'construction' noise

Signs at the various 'hop-on-hop- off' bus stops would definitely have helped. Enjoyednthe trip. Thanks! Monica + 2 Australia
