Well, its being funded by the German banks and it will be promoted by the Tourism Board. No mention of SIA so far.

As for views, yah I figure the buildings you mentioned would block some of the views of Orchard and parts of the North East. Orchard itself will get an observation tower in future.

However this should offer excellent views of the bay, the skyline, the new downtown, the Kallang Basin, and the east. In addition you can see the Indonesian isles, and all the ships out at sea

Great news, cant see it becoming as big as the London Eye though as thats in a perfect position, but its great none the less. Birmingham had a plan for a giant wheel, but London Eye were gonna sue the company as it was a copyright, guess it was just for a new wheel in this country they opposed. Ours was gonna go under ground and act as an archway to our new city extention

Those were the days

Good Luck with yours

The dubai one will be set higher, but this one has a bigger diameter and more capsules.
So that's the tallest, while this is the biggest.

I'd much rather have an observation tower though...

I love the name. Singapore Flyer....kind of a retro good ol' days type of fun.

Its a moving observation building. Lots of fun to go on one of these including the London Eye.

I haven't been on one yet. Maybe someday.
