Thread: Singapore Flyer stuck since this afternoon (now 9:05pm)

    Just hope there wasn't any tourists inside there who had flights to catch.

    Worst case tourist itinerary: 1) Have Huge Chili Crab dish, 2) Go try out Singapore Flyer before flight, 3) Changi Airport.

    If missing the flight isn't bad enough, that HUGE chili crab boiling inside the stomach with no toilet for 6 hours is sure to be a "David Blaine" moment.

    Hahaha! Man sucks what happened but this is really strange, everything in Singapore runs like a clock. The wheel in Melbourne has just started but I have to say it is ugly.
    Enlighten me...

    The pride of Singapore becomes a national embarrassment. See lah, want to hao lian and build everything the best. Now whenever people see any image of the Flyer on any brochure, this incident will surely come to mind.

    Maybe when they decided to turn the wheel the other way around to make better fengshui, they broke something in the process...

    Talking about Feng-Shui, if each complete turn of the Flyer signifies a year of wealth, given 6 hours of stall, that equates to 8 years of economic stand still?

    The wheel suppose to turn clockwise and they force it to run anti-clockwise. Who to blame? the fengshui master!

    free pizza sounds kinda cheap.

    already it is a money losing white elephant. with this standstill to mark the closure of 2008 by the wheel of fortune for Singapore, it symbolises a bad year ahead.

    i tot there was supposed to be a method to disengage the motor to the gear and allow a free spinning so as to aid rescue? Wasnt there an 1800 number to call the foreigners who designed the wheel? oh i forgot, its Christmas time. To hell with the wheel, they were having a beer party somewhere.

    i know santa was busy preparing presents. But, where was superman when we needed him most?

    even if they pay you to ride, it aint worth it because the next stuck will be 56 hours.

    Well unless you like to have a free heli lift... and a chance for a sky dive.... it would be thrilling then!

    "Look to your right, it is the Stuck Flyer!" LOL

    They are having a special Christmas day ride so I'm wondering how are they going to react if it happens on the day itself.

    German and most European companies are on holidays mood now. I remembered my project involving some equipments from Germany years ago and I was stuck with the delivery schedule. Their working style not like Kiasu Asian.

    Erm, just curious, how to tell whether clockwise or anti-clockwise ? It depends whether you view from north or south right ? Ha....

    Ha....
