Singapore Flyer, described by its operators as “Flyer Observation Wheel”, was the tallest ferris wheel in the world from 2008 until 2014. Standing at a stunning 165m (541 ft.) from the ground, near the shore of Marina Bay, it is 5 m (16 ft.) taller than the Star of Nanchang, in China and 30 m (98 ft.) taller than the London Eye, in England. It is built over immense three-storey complex with restaurants, shopping, and bars.
The Flyer is mounted with 28 air-conditioned capsules, each one the size of a bus, capable of holding 28 passengers. The scenic flight on the Flyer offers you breathtaking 360° views of Singapore’s center and beyond to about 45 km (28 mi), including glimpses of the neighboring countries of Indonesia and Malaysia. This ferris wheel rotates slowly and the ride lasts approximately 30 minutes.
