The Singapore Flyer

This is the Singapore Flyer is a giant observation wheel equivalent to the London Eye.

The Flyer comprises a 150 m (492 ft) diameter wheel, built over a three-story terminal building, giving it a total height of 165 m (541 ft). This exceeds The Star of Nanchang by 5 m (16 ft) and the London Eye by 30 m (98 ft). Each of the 28 air-conditioned capsules are capable of holding 28 passengers each, and a complete rotation of the wheel takes approximately 30 minutes. For more information you can view from source:Wikipedia.



I have yet gone for the ride in the flyer, will post more photos when I actually go for the ride. :)

I have been to the London Eye last year, so I have to get a ride on the Singapore one, one day.

I would go on that without hesitation! I love Ferris wheels! I've been on 'double' ones, and just huge ones.

great shots--it looks scary but it feels so good to be up that high, without racing around like you do on a roller coaster, and seeing the world from up there.

Thanks for coming by my blog. I would have liked to go inside the log cabin but it was not open so I had to settled for outside.

I think I would like to go on the flyer. I love anything that gives you a wonderful view and I bet those views are priceless.
