Asia’s largest observation wheel, the Singapore Flyer, is back in full swing now!

Singapore Flyer resumed operations on Sunday, 1 April 2018 after stopping its operations for over two months due to a technical breakdown on 25 January 2018. The root cause was a defective part at the foot of the wheel, which obstructed the rotational mechanism. No passengers on any of its 28 capsules were affected.

The part has since been repaired and has passed all the necessary safety checks and tests carried out by the Building and Constructions Authority (BCA).

Since its reopening a few days back, hordes of travellers were seen queuing for the Flyer from as early as 11am.

Food and beverage outlets located on the second storey of the Flyer’s base cheered in hopes that businesses will resume back to normal. These eateries saw a dip from an average of about 400 customers a day to fewer than 200.
