The idea of Singapore's Ferris Wheel first came into being in 2000, and the formal plan began in 2002. The German Melchers Project Management (MPM) and Orient Pacific Management (O P) jointly established Singapore Ferris Wheel Co., Ltd. as the developer of the project. MPM and O P account for 75% and 25% respectively. After the project was officially announced, a memorandum of understanding was approved and signed by the Singapore Tourism Bureau on 27 June 2003, formally recording the agreement between the developer and the Tourism Bureau on land acquisition procedures. The memorandum stipulates that the land in the coastal centre will be purchased from the Singapore Land Administration and leased to Singapore Ferris Wheel Co., Ltd. for a period of 30 years and an optional extension of 15 years. In addition, the Tourist Bureau will not charge rent during the construction of the project. In July 2003, Jones Lang LaSalle was appointed as the real estate consultant for the project. Takenaka Corporation and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries were selected as contractors, and Arup was responsible for structural engineering research and design. The Ferris wheel was originally designed to resemble the London Eye, with a height of 170 meters, but was criticized for lack of originality. The developer quickly responded that the design was not the final version, but for conceptual purposes. The Ferris wheel, which was originally scheduled to be completed by the end of 2005, was delayed indefinitely because of the difficulty in raising funds for developers. In September 2005, the project was funded by two German banks, Delbrueck Bethmann Maffei Bank (a subsidiary of Bank of the Netherlands), which provided S$100 million for the project and S$140 million for Yubao United Bank, which enabled the project to recover.
Boarding the world's tallest Ferris viewing wheel at 9 p.m., sitting in the viewing cabin 360 degrees to enjoy the beautiful night scenery of Singapore, everything can be seen in 30 minutes. Waterfront Art Center, Merlion Park, Singapore River, Coastal Bay Golden Sand Hotel and F1 Race Track have been seen together. There is air conditioning in the observation vessel. Although it is hot outside, the cabin is very comfortable and rotates very slowly. It can hardly feel its rotation. It can walk around without fear. It can take pictures of every corner of Singapore with a camera. When you go in, there are staff members to take photos for you. At the exit, you can see the photos. I like this picture of our mother and son very much. It cost 20 New Yuan to buy a souvenir.
Singapore Ferris Wheel, also known as the Flyer, is a giant Ferris Wheel located in Singapore. The design of the Ferris Wheel is undertaken by Oyana and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. The height of 165 meters is equivalent to 42 stories, which is 30 meters higher than Millennium Eye in London, England. The first time I went to Singapore, I passed by in a hurry. Although the second time was not long, the Ferris wheel was put in the place of punching in. After a trip to the Museum of Science and Art in Kinshasa Bay and a wonderful rehearsal of Singapore's National Day in August, we walked to the Ferris Wheel not far away. In fact, we wanted to sit on the Ferris Wheel and watch the fireworks show, but the Ferris Wheel queued for a long time, so we couldn't! On the first floor, you can buy tickets, RMB 33, ordinary box, which can seat about 10 people, and VIP dinner. Actually, it's cheaper to buy online in advance. The team is really long. The mountain road is eighteen corners. It took us nearly 40 minutes to line up and get into the box quickly. It's quite spacious inside. Transparent glass on all sides and two rows of sofa benches in the middle. Inside, there is a small screen to play the introduction of Singapore's classic attractions, including landmarks from the Ferris wheel. Turning around for about 30 minutes, you can see the beautiful night scenery of Singapore, which is made up of neon lights. During the day, there is a blue sea view, maybe another beautiful view, maybe you can see the small islands of Malay or Indonesia. 165 meters is also quite high, if you don't look at the soles of your feet. Everything was fine except for a few Chinese boys who were chattering in the box. It's no use reminding me of the beautiful scenery. Although all the boxes are Chinese, are they disgraced in other places? On the importance of educating children well.
You can see the panorama of the city, the Singapore Strait, the coastal embankment, the coastal South Pier and so on. It is absolutely a good place to eliminate the memory of the camera. It took 2 years and 3 months to complete the project, which cost 240 million Singapore dollars.
The Ferris wheel happened to meet the National Day rehearsal. I wanted to see the scenery on the Ferris wheel. Unexpectedly, the weather was bad. The Ferris wheel stopped selling tickets and changed tickets, and I was not sure whether to return the tickets, but I would return home the next day. We decided to wait, which led us to wait for more than an hour. Fortunately, the scenery is beautiful and the waiting is worthwhile.
Suggestions to do after 8 o'clock, because then the sky is completely dark, the lights are fully bright, the night scene is beautiful, we must see the night scene, during the day I feel boring. Ferris wheel carriage is very large, can be more than a dozen people, walk around at will will will not shake, very smooth, do not feel fluctuations. There's nothing like the fear of heights in a cable car.
Tickets are much cheaper to buy online, but we should pay attention to the change time, because it is almost too late to change tickets and rush all the way. Ferris wheel queues at night are not a lot of people, and soon can go up, because it is like a carriage design, can accommodate 8-10 people, will not shake, move very slowly, feel very comfortable. You can enjoy the night view of Poguo, overlook F1 track, Jinsha Hotel, National Stadium, Super Beauty!
