Great Wheel of China

Nope, I didn't type wrongly and it's true that China will be putting a 'Wheel' too just like the one in Malaysia and similar with several wheels found in various countries.

This Great Observation Wheel of China will be the biggest in the world once fully constructed, scheduled to be completed by end 2009.








It will be at a height of 208m weighing 2,800 tons that comes with 48 capsules to cater for visitors. Each capsule could fit in 40 people which is like a normal public transport bus in Malaysia that seats 44 people. Just imagine how big is one capsule.

It seems that the Great Dubai Wheel and Singapore Flyer (which I have blogged about) are under the same management company Great Wheel Corporation, that will operate the Beijing Wheel.

Singapore Flyer (under the same managament company) is charging S$29 per ride. so, it should be a bit higher than Singapore's pricing since it will be the world's tallest and could fit in 40 people per capsule compared to Singapore's capsule which could fit around 28 persons.
