    i think the common thinking is, view from the main land towards the sea, which means clockwise towards cdb area and anticlock wise towards east coast area

    Just curious .... if you kanna stuck there and bad luck, stomach ache and you need to poop poop, do you

    1. poop in your pant and say sorry to the rest of the 27 ppl in the cabin,

    2. take out pant and poop in a corner and say very sorry to the 27 ppl, or

    3. try to find an opening / or break the glass, and poop with your backside facing those kaypoh spectators below and make sign to say you are so very very sorry?

    Then again, who got tissue paper?
    always the Light, .... always.

    Did the flyer change the rotation direction ? When I took it earlier this year (Yes, I was a sucker to have paid the $$$ to get on....), it was rotating anti clockwise if you're standing in the car park opposite and looking at the Flyer..... meaning, see the Singapore skyline at the start and end with a view of Tanjong Rhu and the Marina GC at the end of rotation.... Has that changed ?
    Snap ?

    Are you serious about the "pride of Singapore" thing? All I saw was that yet another parcel of greenery got poured over with concrete to erect a "me, too" copycat attraction. In my view, not particularly original, and the "world's largest" hype will only last so long.

    From a touristic point of view, I believe authentic local creations like Haw Par villa are far more enticing.

    According to Fengshui, The Wheel turning clockwise means The River of Great Wealth flows to the heaven.

    The Wheel turning anti-clowise is The River of Great Wealth flows to the earth and to Singapore.

    I'm sure they have enough people ranting about the situation already. They're already doing their best. Nobody wanted this to happen. It can happen anytime, anywhere in the world. Let's take some pride in what our country can offer instead of dissing them cos of some tech errors ..........the london eye did have a few problems too..........mrt n lrt n nel too had problems too.............

    But to be trapped up there for 6hrs? It's quite inexcusable. They obviously didn't have a proper evac plan going on. Why should I be proud of this? It's a national embarassment!

    Ditto.

    Easily replicated. Not unique. Far from being the pride of Singapore.

    All Flyer passengers should be issued with a Spiderman Costume?

    Just read in today's paper that the London Eye has emergency water, food, blanket and toilet facilities in each capsule and the worst case was 1 hour of stuck time. It also has its own power generator, can freely rotate if needed and some sort of rope rescue system. Our Singapore flyer only has an intercom.

    Worst, an intercom with no information when tourists were wondering what happened. The staff were probably running around to get approval for "official" statement. Even the news on mediacorp was appealing to public for pictures and / or video.

    Btw, did you notice the rescuer in the picture in today's newspaper does not seem to be an SCDF person?
