Wheels of the World

Eye On Malaysia was launched on 6 Jan 2007.

The Great Dubai Wheel is under construction and its wheel diameter will be around 185 meter.

One of the latest attraction in Fukuoka of Japan - the Sky Dream Fukuoka which is about 112 meter.

In bringing up its tourism reputation, the Abu Dhabi emirate is planning to construct a unique Diamond Ring Hotel.

The Singapore Flyer in Singapore of course, should be by March 2008.
This London Eye has been operating succesfully and was featured in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer's movie.
And the not to be outdone ....... Pakistan Eye. I really admire their creativity actually (but is the wheel real?)

Hey, in Texas we have the Texas Star at the State Fair - the largest ferris wheel in N. America.

Being 22 years old - it is perhaps lagging in Giant-ness at only 65 meters - but it's a great ride.

I love ferris wheels - all my kids but one like them as well.

Been to eye of malaysia, not really that spectacular. One reason is because it's quite low and nothing much can be seen.

Should try out Singapore flyer once it's ready, at least 2.5 times taller. If it's ready by Sept '08, you can enjoy F1 view at the same time too.
