Like the tagline, “a moving experience on every turn”, yes, this giant Ferris Wheel really give you lots of experiences when you are inside the capsule.
How to get there?
The easiest way is by MRT, stop at Promenade Station (Circle Line). From there, you just need to walk around 5 minutes and you can reach Singapore Flyer.
I always have a thing for a Ferris Wheel, don’t know why but it’s always so nice to see the giant wheel moving slowly, especially when it’s nighttime when you can see the wheel turning as the sky getting darker. Okay maybe I start to sound a lil poetic here :p
So, I decided to hop inside this capsule on January 2nd, 2016. I need to Q a while to get to the capsule maybe because it’s weekend and New Year’s vibe is still on 😀
FYI, the opening hours is 8.30 a.m – 10.30 p.m. There are 28 capsules and one capsule can fit to 28 passangers in one time. You will be inside the capsule for around 30 minutes.
So, I may say night time is the best time to ride the capsule as you can see the nightview of Singapore. Maybe you think you’ll be afraid of the height, but if you really do enjoy the spectacular view, you would hardly know you were moving. From the capsule, you can see some attractive places like Merlion Park, The Fullerton Bay, Esplanade, Singapore River, Marina Bay Sands, The Helix Bridge, Youth Olympic Park, F1 Circuit, and many more. The view is stunning, amazing, and breathtaking.
You can ride the capsule with your family, friends, but the best is with your partner of course. When you’re inside the capsule, you can feel the romantic vibe all around you. And there’s a myth saying that if you both kiss when the capsule reach the top, both you and your partner will live happily forever. Haha I know it may sounds cliché, but there’s no harm trying :p
You can also get your own capsule and get a premium sky dining with your partner. It’s also a good place to celebrate your anniversary or to propose your girlfriend.
Anyway, if you need to buy the admission ticket first, of course with the cheaper price, you can contact me through my e-mail : email@example.com
