Singapore Flyer

9/29/10

Included in our F1 tickets were free flights on the Singapore Flyer. We decided to take advantage of this on Friday since we got to the track pretty early. And because I've been bugging Jeff to come with me on the Flyer since the day I arrived here. The Singapore Flyer is the world's largest observation wheel and is 165m (541 ft). That's about 37 stories high. 
The inside of our capsule.
From the Flyer we saw these exclusive rooftop suites across from pit lane. How awesome would it be to watch the race from here? 
This photo was taken at the top. You can see the Marina Bay Sands in the background. 
Although a trip all the way around is about 30 minutes, that was too long for Jeff. Not even a third of the way through he was ready to get off. It's definitely a once-is-enough sort of tourist attraction. The views are great, even though it was a bit hazy when we went up (I recommend going on a clearer day, or evening so it's not as hot in the capsules).
