Where do you want to be in March 2008 ?

It was last April when the news appeared that we’ll be able to view 360% of Singapore as well as neighboring Indonesia and Malaysia on the world’s tallest observation wheel – the Singapore Flyer.

Singapore Flyer

Instead of the stated date of public opening on 1st March, 700 lucky people got the first spin yesterday up the 165meters ferris wheel which is 30meters higher than the London Eye. They were guests of the 17 companies who coughed out $8,888 for each of the 28 capsules booked.

Until 1st March, the flyer is opened only for private functions. Judging by the sold-out response for the next few days, even at the normal S$29.50 (adult fare) for the 30 minutes ride, it will definitely be a mad rush for the 20% seats allocated to walk-in.

To prevent your blood pressure from shooting up, book online at their website www.singaporeflyer.com.sg.

Come to think of it, will patrons breathe in fresh air, or circulated air-con?
