7 FACTS YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE SINGAPORE FLYER OBSERVATION WHEEL

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Singapore Flyer is one of the world’s largest observation wheels - after two and a half years of construction, it was opened in April 2008, its height reaching 165 meters. With a capacity to hold 784 people, Singapore Flyer is considered to be one of the main tourist attractions in Singapore.

2. The observation wheel consists of 28 air-conditioned capsules, each of them able to fit 28 passengers! (take notice of the Feng-Shui arrangement of the digits: both numbers 2 and 8 are considered to be prosperous in Chinese culture)

3. Despite the fact that Singapore Flyer attracts thousands of tourists to this day, this attraction has not always been successful. Developers of this project were forced to delay the construction multiple times due to insufficient funds.

4. The “First Flights” at the grand opening of the wheel were held from the 11th to 13th February, in time for Chinese New Year. Tickets for those three days were sold at $8,888 (a number believed to bring wealth and prosperity in Chinese culture)

5. Initially, the wheel turned in a counterclockwise direction, if viewed from Marina Centre, but its direction was reversed on the 4th of August 2008 upon an advice from a Feng-Shui expert.

6. The view from Singapore Flyer opens up a magnificent panorama of the city and the Singapore Bay from a bird’s eye-view. You may even catch a glimpse of the coasts of Malaysia and Indonesia!

7. Singapore is always looking for a new way to surprise its visitors: apart from the standard tickets, inclusive of one 30-minute spin on the wheel, you may also order a bottle of champagne, lunch, or a romantic dinner to be served on the wheel.
