Singapore XD Theatre
The Singapore XD Theatre, one of Singapore Flyer’s newest attractions, takes passengers on a multi-sensory journey through the canyons of the American Southwest, over snow-covered mountains, into outer space, or through an arid ravine, all without leaving the comfort of your seat.
30 Raffles Avenue #02-09, Singapore, 039803
The moving theater has 10 seats, each equipped with its own motion technology that can include up to 400 distinct movements per second, including left to right, up and down, front to back, twisting and pitching. Pair that with 3D glasses, state-of-the-art surround sound and wind effects, and the experience becomes incredibly immersive. Billed as a 6D motion ride, the resulting experience is akin to riding a roller coaster without actually getting tossed around. Visitors can choose from four different films, and at least one typically caters to families with younger kids.
Things to Know Before You Go
- Unlike many thrill rides, young kids and elderly visitors can ride without worry of injury (and both get a slight discount).
- Visitors prone to motion sickness might want to sit this one out.
- Buy your tickets online to ensure you get the time you want; discounts are often available.
How to Get There
The easiest way to get to the Singapore Flyer is to take the MRT to Promenade Station and take Exit A. A blue pedestrian bridge leads to the observation wheel, and the XD Theatre is on the second level.
When to Get There
Singapore XD Theatre is open Thursday to Tuesday in the afternoon and evenings. The 10-seat theater can fill up, so it’s a good idea to visit earlier in the day. Try it out before or after riding the Singapore Flyer.
