The Singapore Flyer reopened on April 1, more than two months after its suspension in late-January, The Straits Times reported.
The decade-old attraction was forced to suspend operations after a “technical issue”. It is understood the problem was traced to a glitch in the mechanism which allows the wheel to rotate. Located at the base of the wheel, it did not affect the observation wheel or any of its 28 capsules structurally.
Singapore Flyer announced on March 31 that it had received approvals from the relevant authorities to resume operations, and that the “necessary safety checks and tests have been carried out to the satisfaction of the Building and Constructions Authority”.
