last week i was on the tallest chaining roundabout in the world ( only 52m high!), opposite was the ferris wheel with also 50m. it's difficult to introduce to be in 172m on a chaining roundabout or a ferris wheel. i was already in 200m on the Main Tower in Frankfurt but this is something differently.

Yup.

It's like saying every boxy skyscraper is a copy of Seagram?

[QUOTE=RafflesCity]The Flyer at the public model exhibit.

Wheels suck. Seriously. It's just an opinion, but I couldn't be more adament about it. They wreck the skyline and are piss-poor observation platforms. If I was on the city zoning board, not a single one would ever be built.

An observation tower like the CN Tower in Toronto or Stratosphere in Las Vegas accentuates the urban skyline and actually observes more.

The Singapore Wheel is a real waste of some premium property. Hong Kong has a nice piece of property across the harbor from the main skyscraper district. They put the 118 floor ICC building on it. Good for them.
