I want to swim in that pool

Great pix there. Has the Skydeck eaten into the business of the Flyer at all? They forfill a similar role and have a similar view of the city. Will be interesting to know how that it going.

I'm sure it has. The Skypark is higher then the Flyer and cheaper. Plus you can stay up there for as long as you want.

Thats definately a big drawback about wheels.

In Melbourne, we had 2 (280m and 235m) observation decks and the Southern Star Wheel (120m) at one point. Currently we are down to one (Eureka - 280m), as the Rialto has closed to become a resturant and the wheel is currently being rebuilt. The Eureka and Rialto decks were operated by the same people though. There is big questionmarks about the wheels long term viability as its much shorter than Eureka and is in a less desirable location.

I can see the same issues happening in Singapore if they both can not find their place in the market.

Im hoping to get to Singapore next year. Theres so much more there now to see and do.

Sound like the problem melbourne had is similar to what Singapore is having now. But i dont think any of them will close i sure they are in it for the long term. I feel its just a matter of pricing and how unique the location is.
