Apr. 15 - The world's largest Ferris wheel, the Singapore Flyer, opens its capsules to the general public, offering a bird's eye view of the city-state as well as parts of neighbouring Malaysia and Indonesia.
It's 541 feet high. For comparison, the observation deck of the Space Needle is 520 feet. I'd poop my pants...
The Flyer had better enjoy it's moment of fame. The Great Wheel of China will open in Beijing at the Olympics in 2009 at 682 feet.
QUESTION: Could you take a ride?
