Well i have been to the Flyer on a couple of occasions already. Opened in early 2008, it looms over the Marina area looking over the Skyline of Singapore.
My first time up there was my mum’s birthday, someone gave her VIP tickets, which means only the four of us getting the whole cabin to ourselves!
Check out the VIP waiting lounge~
The VIP lounge has its own LCD tv to keep guests entertained, as well as a bar!
Then when you get on the capsule itself, you get to choose if you want cocktail or mocktail. And .. peanuts~
Overall the view is pretty nice, especially when i went, it was during the rehearsal of the National Day Parade as well as construction works going on at the completed Marina Bay Sands. But i do feel that time is too short up there on the wheel.
Prices are not exactly cheap either, except for student discounts on some days. The flyer is pretty pointless to go again and again. Only if its with friends or family as i’ve got to say that the time spent up there with them is golden. Better yet if you book the whole capsule for your other half or probably have a dinner in the capsule itself! (which will BLOW A HUGE HOLE IN YOUR POCKET).
Not all fun though should you get stuck in it like these folks when the flyer malfunctioned and jammed for six hours in 2008. Sure wouldnt want to be in that one, especially if you have issues holding your pee. But they have fixed the problem and nothing of the sort has been arising ever since.
However if you are a tourist visiting the country, i feel that its an experience taking the largest observation wheel in the world and highly recommend you to go for it.

Family Outings to the Singapore Flyer can be a real fun affair.
So, do you wanna go to the flyer? or have going? or is going?
