The Singapore Flyer, Asia’s largest Ferris wheel, is a great spot for spectacular views of the Marina area.
It would be a shame to come to Singapore and not ride it.
This time, I actually rode the Singapore Flyer, and I’m going to give you a detailed report on what it’s like there. .
We had a very special night in Singapore thanks to the Singapore Flyer.
This report includes recommendations for a memorable ride and even discount ticket information. .
The Singapore Flyer offers a dynamic night view
The Singapore Flyer is the largest Ferris wheel in Asia, located in the Marina Bay area.
With a height of 165 meters, it was the tallest Ferris wheel in the world until it was surpassed by a new Ferris wheel built in Las Vegas, USA in 2014.
It is still known as the largest Ferris wheel in Asia.
You can walk there from Marina Bay Sands, so it’s easy to visit.
There is no better place to see the dynamic night view of Singapore than the Singapore Flyer.
The best time to visit is at night. You can enjoy the night view of Singapore that shines like a jewel box.

[Experience] A Romantic Night on the Singapore Flyer
This time, I actually took a ride on the Singapore Flyer to see the sparkling night view.
Here’s a detailed report on what happened there!
Arriving at the Singapore Flyer
On this day, we planned to visit the Marina Bay area and ride the Singapore Flyer at 7:30pm.
We arrived a little early. A really big Ferris wheel!
It’s the biggest in Asia, so I definitely want to ride it when I come to Singapore! I thought to myself.
This time we had made reservations in advance. I’ve heard that it’s crowded at night and hard to get on…
Here are the tickets I had reserved -> 「Asia’s Largest Ferris Wheel」 Singapore Flyer ride ticket + 1 alcoholic drink for $49.04
When we went to the place where we could buy vouchers for tickets, we could wait here until it was time to board.
By the way, the place where the Singapore Flyer is located is like a small shopping center.
Finally, we boarded the gondola
When it was time to board, I was given a ticket.
This is my favorite ticket because of its cute design.
I guess they needed to adjust the time until we got on the gondola, so we waited in what looked like a VIP area, lol.
When I could wait in a place like this, I was glad I made a reservation.
For couples as well as those with children, reservations are recommended. .
Ride in the glowing gondola
The Singapore Flyer glows blue at night. As you can see in the picture, the capacity is 28 people per gondola, which is a lot.
We rode in a special gondola that was a little different from the regular gondolas.
Since our plan included alcohol, we were given cute glasses at the entrance.
The people riding the gondola with us were all six in total. It was nice to be able to see the night view at my own pace quite a bit.
The gondola got higher and higher. The romantic 30 minutes have begun!
Enjoying the night view of Singapore
As the gondola gets higher, the night view of Singapore comes into view.
On the other side, you can now see Marina Bay Sands.
Impressive view of the marina area
We’re finally approaching the top. This view is so powerful!
I was able to capture the Singapore Flyer and Marina Bay Sands together.
It’s beautiful and enchanting.
The Singapore Flyer is made of glass, so I was able to enjoy a 360 degree panoramic night view.
From here, the gondola goes lower and lower.
The blue glow of the Singapore Flyer is beautiful.
You can also see the light show at Gardens by the Bay.
We enjoyed a quick 30 minutes and came back down to earth.
Ahhh! It really was a beautiful night view.
The night view was much more dynamic than I had imagined, and I was left overwhelmed.
The Singapore Flyer was honestly a spot that exceeded my expectations.
If you’re ever in Singapore and want to see a beautiful night view, this is the place for you!

Reviews from people who went to Singapore Flyer with KKday
I felt very VIP! We had to wait on a sofa in a separate area to enter. The Singapore Sling was very tasty and easy to drink. It was a very quick 30 minutes. I think it’s worth the money for the option!
Because it was the end of the year, it was crowded and the start time was slightly delayed, but since we had reservations, we got in next to the long line. I was very impressed with the beautiful night view of the marina while having a Singapore shilling. I will take it again.
I’m glad I didn’t have to wait in line, because I felt like a VIP because of the priority boarding and the exclusive lounge. I’m glad I didn’t have to wait in line!
