Thats impossible, the tower isn't heavy, and if thats true then the tower will sink too. Don't know much about the methods used for building such towers near muddy river banks.... surely similar to bridges I guess.

It appears the tubing is already showing quite large rust stains, is that going to be removed? or is there going to be a protective covering or something?

Yeah, me too. But i must say, the picture looks brilliant. Hopefully we will see another one soon which focuses a little bit more on the two towers.

That's an awesome concept for an observation deck attraction. It's like a horizontal ferris wheel. A spaceshot would have been awesome though.

reallistically, there would be more people watching other people riding spaceshot than actually going on it for themselves. People that go on it would recommend others never to go on it.

many young people would use the spaceshot, but not older peoples. the "horizontal Ferris wheel" will probably be used by everyone
