^You can't really judge just because it's not finished.

More so, you should say that the Tokyo Skytree would not be anymore superior than the GZ Tower.

also, this is the picture of the carriage

Now that some pods are in place it suddenly seems kinda unnecessary... I mean if people can go up to the outdoor deck anyways, why get stuck in a pod especially if it takes 40 mins to go around??

I agree...if the pod is just circling the rim then why even bother going in the pod which i might add will surely cost more $.

Photos by me taken on October 3 during a quick morning visit to site. Crowds were long to purchase tickets to observation so didn't have time to do so myself. Pods installed but were not running while I was there.

Your saying is like why take escalator when there is a stair. Some prefers to do their walks around the top to cover 360. Others prefer to have the pod ride. It is just personal choice, I think. Then again the pods are at the edge which make it more exciting.

Whoa, the gravity ride's back? How're they gonna fit that on there? The antenna doesn't look like it'd accommodate it. But if the rumors are true, then that'd be awesome. I'd definitely wanna go on that instead of the boring pod rides.
