In travel brochures, the Singapore Flyer is described like this:
Standing at a stunning 165m, Singapore Flyer is the height of a 42-storey building – that’s some 30 metres taller than the famed London Eye. Taking a flight on this S$240 million wheel is a one-of-a-kind experience you wouldn’t want to miss.
It usually costs 39 Singapore dollars ($29.81 US) for a half hour ride, but during the month of September it was free for educators, so we gave it a try.
We went after school on a weeknight, which turned out to be a perfect time because we saw the Singapore cityscape as it transitioned from day to night.
After the ride ended, a nice employee snapped our photo beside one of the cabins. The cabins are large, holding about 30 people in each one. You can make reservations to have a romantic dinner in a private cabin or celebrate a special event with friends and family.
It was a fun night with a beautiful view of Singapore. We have now officially been on the tallest Ferris wheel in the world!
