Has it really been 11 years? wow i remember when it was being built, still haven't been on it.
I think i will just save my money for going on the Singapore Flyer (Tallest Ferris Wheel in the world)

Was only supposed to be a temporary thing wasn't it.. such a money spinner i guess so they kept it

Who is voting this cold and why?

Lol, i wasn't commentating on the deal, just on the attraction.

Although you would need to spend some form of money getting there...

I haven't been on it either. Haven't decided if I will attend or not though. Good deal though.

tbh go on it for free, not worth paying a penny for!

we didnt queue anywhere near that long :?

Queue is normally only 20 mins ish!

I only queued for about 20 mins too when we went.

Depends what time you go - but I've never queued for more than 5 mins for the ride. The 4D show however has been a different case - more like 30 mins.

Which queue are you supposed to join? The ticket counter, the 4D Experience or the wheel itself???

Very tight margin....10 mins! But also the first time I've ever seen such a deal, so hot from me.
And I do think it's a great experience. Amazing views.

Great deal, I've been on it a couple of times and I've never had to queue, guess I've been lucky :-)

The new 4d cinema is supposed to be pretty good, I wonder if you get to see that too?

Hot from me.

Tried to see how much a ticket normally is but the booking part of the website is down at the moment.

Says it was built in march 2000 so where is these 11 years from :thinking:

Apparently it was designed and engineered for a 5 year life. Hopefully they built plenty into the safety margins - note to self: must go sooner rather than later! :whistling:
