Singapore Flyer to reopen on July 23
THE Singapore Flyer will reopen on Thursday with “strict” safety measures in place, said its operator Straco Leisure, a subsidiary of mainboard-listed Straco Corp.
The iconic giant observation wheel will operate on Thursdays to Sundays and on public holidays, from 3pm to 9pm.
Visits are limited to five guests per group, Straco Leisure said in a press statement on Tuesday.
Each capsule will host no more than seven persons at a time. After each rotation, guest-occupied capsules will be disinfected before the next group boards.
All guests are required to make an advance reservation online at www.singaporeflyer.com, where they will select a date of visit and entry time. Ticketing counters will remain temporarily closed.
The Singapore Flyer will reduce its operating capacity “significantly” to ensure ample space for safe distancing, Straco Leisure said.
For better crowd control, apart from limiting the number of guests onsite, there will be a one-way traffic flow from the flight entrance to the disembarkation point.
With the reopening, there will be a promotion of up to 54 per cent off on flight tickets for Singapore residents for the month of August.
The attraction has been closed since April 7, when Singapore began its “circuit breaker” in response to the novel coronavirus pandemic. The country is now in Phase Two of the reopening.
Food and beverage outlets at the attraction’s retail terminal are also open now.
Shares of Straco Corp last traded on Monday at S$0.52.
