Fly Away

The Singapore Flyer, a giant observation wheel that features brilliant engineering breakthroughs a world apart from the traditional ferris wheel, took its maiden flight yesterday with 700 people on board.

On a clear day, at 165m aloft, the view will stretch 45km across the island and even into neighboring Malaysia to the north and Indonesia to the south.

Costing $240 million to build, the Singapore Flyer is inspired by the London eye but is 30m taller than its British cousin. It is set to be Asia's most visible iconic visitor attraction, providing breathtaking, panoramic views of Singapore and beyond.
