Singapore Flyer is 165 m high and it's a great experience to go on it. The flyer takes you in closed cabin meant for 28 persons,but we were only 7 at the time I was riding . It moves slowly giving ample time to take photos and enjoy the scenery. It is very safe and enjoyable ride.total ride takes about 30 to 40 minutes. There are arrangements for dining and drinks on the flyer by paying higher ticket.
