if they do end up installing the gravity ride, i still have no idea how they will ever pull it off with the lattice structure.

lol, i dunno
i guess what im trying to say is that if i were to pay money for a ride, i would want it to be something like a thriller amusement park ride
(something like a gravity ride),
that also does not obstruct the view of the observers who choose to stay on the deck.
now if the bubbles actually did end up running at 40 rpm, then i might reconsider my disapproval

well thats what im saying, that you can see more without falling off, but i would rather them just put pedestals with nice railing on the edges
i just dont like how the bubbles--and the nodes on the antenna--ruin the look the whole structure.
i dont know, maybe thats just me.

Knowing the record for Chinese amusement park rides, I'm gonna give this at least 5 years before I go.

cheers google, the pictures above don't give us a slightest hint of gravity ride... oh well, maybe there wont be one. I guess its replaced by perimeter orbiting dining cells. I heard there will be theater at the roof as well, but it looks as though there wont be one. With the spire blocking the performance.

This is just like the London Eye rotating horizontally.

I hope and think that the sphere rotates on itself as well, otherwise the people sitting in the inner side wont see anything, if the sphere don't rotate, there will be a massive problem with where people wanna sit.

i don't think anyone would eat or watch any videos on the LCD in it without watching the scenery.
