There seems to be quite a number of this observation wheel coming up lately. Guess the original idea came from the London Eye.....there's also one in Malaysia recently erected...similar setting beside a lake in Titiwangsa Park with KL skyline as a backdrop...but it's not meant as a permanent fixture...only for Visit Malaysia Year 2007......wonder is the construction method is similar coz it was erected quite fast
