SINGAPORE FLYER: World’s Tallest Ferris Wheel for a Few Months






Finally, it’s finished! You dudes and babes don’t have any idea how long have we been waiting fro this dang Ferris Wheel to be completed. We have flown in and out of Singapore in the past year and this giant structure is just standing just right below us, my nose press against the dang cabin window.

The Singapore Flyer is the World’s Tallest at 541 ft! Now that the world is taking a new meaning to “observation decks”, do you think Singapore would be left out? Uh-uh! No, siree. They have just built the tallest of ‘em all.


Although it is “officially” the tallest in the worldnot for long. When the Great Dubai Wheel opens late this year, it would be 66 ft taller at 607 ft. And early next year… the Beijing Great Wheel will open at 682 ft! *what a bunch of kill-joys. Ha!*


So, what are you waiting for? Plan a trip to Singapore and try the Singapore Flyer while it is the planet’s tallest. Here’s their official website. It would be one of the best experience in Singapore – guaranteed. And it's not just a ferris wheel... it's an engineering marvel!

Note: For the record, although it already opened last 01 March, the grand launch is on 15 April 2008. See you there!
