    Financially they cannot make ends meet. It cost a lot to build, maintain and operate. The rental revenue from F&B outlets is insufficient.

    I only went up once and thats it. Not worth the high (on discounted purchase) fees for that short ride. High ridership mainly contributed by Tourist and most of them on package tours I think.

    For a start they could give a nice 50 percent discount on ticket price for pink ic holders.

    At a price of ? $33 a ticket, I am prepared to never step afoot the flyer, And I doubt I will miss anything.

    Me think its just another victim of the "let's have the greatest, tallest, biggest, longest, no. 1 whatever....." mentality that has plagued this country for so long.....

    Agree with you it's probably too expensive and most people would never go up there more than once at best, but it's a nice view. I've seen good photographs from there too.

    Perhaps most tourists rather go for a lucky spin in MBS

    I have no doubts it gives good views. But for that price, I will have to humbly give it a pass.

    You can wait for promo I guess. I recall they offered a $20 for Passion card members a while ago (and I'm sure loads of people here have it). Still steep, but not all that different from Skypark.

    Public servants can go for free, if I'm not wrong.
    A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.

    for the price, might as well go up to MBS skypark and spend the money on a drink and no-glass walk-around multi-perspective view of the Bay area... and still cheaper too

    It was originally supposed to rotate in the opposite direction but a consultation with some the world's best feng shui masters ($$$) advised the g-man that it was inappropriate.

    You see, there'll soon be many "faithful devotees" offering their utmost dedicated "prayers" at the "three giant ancestral tablets of eternal wealth" 24/7 and it was "analysed" by the feng shi masters that reversing the rotation of the "water wheel" will channel some of the flow of wealth back into the "five fingered hand with the golden ring of fortune in it's palm (Suntec City)".
