The Flyer will be better in many ways than the existing London Eye on the bank of River Thames. The Eye was built at the turn of the century and stands at 135 metres. It is currently the tallest observation wheel in the world (but not for much longer.) The cheapest ride on it costs 14.5 pounds and lasts 30 minutes.
Diameter of the wheel:
165 metres (the height
of a 42-storey building)
Duration of ride:
Here are some photos related to the Flyer that I have taken recently:
A different view from Marina South of the half-completed Flyer (minus its glass capsules).
Doesn't the Flyer look like a bicycle wheel rim? Maybe it should've been called the Unicycle, haha.
I can't wait to take a ride on it when it is completed (the Flyer, not the bicycle that is).
Firehorse, next time you visit Singapore, I bring you for a ride on the Flyer but you pay, alright?
