Review
What appears to be just another ferris wheel but bigger, turns out to be one fabulous scenic ride. Inspired by other national icons such as the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the London Eye in London, Dr. Kisho Kurokawa of Japan and DP Architects was given the task of designing the Singapore Flyer. In fact, the whole experience from the point of entering the complex to the end of the ride is a pleasant experience.
Thinking that we'd find ourselves typically at the ticketing booth upon entering the premises, we were greeted instead by a waterfall garden, the Rainforest Courtyard. Its coolness, running river, rocks and greenery brought a smile to our faces, especially the young. We couldn't help but to wander through its meandering paths, admiring the landscape.
Boarding the capsule of the Flyer is from the third storey. As you walk down the "aerobridge", it gives a similar feel to that of boarding of an aeroplane. The fun part comes from boarding a moving capsule. But it's slow and easy enough for both the young and elderly passengers.
Once you're in, be ready to be "wow"ed by the emerging scenery. The nice thing about it is that you'll get to see all directions as the cabin makes its way around the wheel. Enjoy the panoramic views and spot as many landmarks as you can before the ride comes all too soon to an end.

Tips
Take photos - the view in all directions and at all heights are great.

Be sure to take the kids to the toilet before you go up. There's no turning back once you're in the capsule.

Things to Bring
A camera for sure. Bring drinking water especially for the kids.
