Wow, I can hardly wait !!
"Wow, I can hardly wait !!"
Sarcasm? I find these rather boring. And what a thrill for the other one that's being built--non-stop commercials being played. Pay a lot of money, go on a slow ride and get bombarded with advertising.
I must admit these wheels are a bit boring. Last month we went on the London eye for the 1st time. It will be the last aswell. Load of money and queing for not alot really. I think you will see more and at your own pace from the Stratosphere or the Eifel tower.
It won't be ready when I go in December. Ah well...
The other one is bankrupt and wont be completed. I forgot the name of it but only 1 of the giant wheels is going to be completed unless the one that is in bankruptcy can get funding.
I wonder if they are going to do anything special with it. If the pods are big enough they could sell the pods for things like new years eve. Provide drinks and what not.
If it was ready when we go I would have went on it, i liked going on the London Eye.
Like someone above said, they'll probably rent the pods out on special occasions, perform weddings up there etc.
I went on the London Eye and really liked it! We had a special occasion, and it was booked with champagne and snacks. It was very special, especially timed to be on top when the sun went down and the sky got colored and extra beautiful. It was an experience never to forget. Absolutely not boring, the time went so fast, I wished the wheel would have gone much slower. Ok, I agree that the Strip isn't London, but also in Vegas it could be very nice and impressive. What is not to like to see a nice view of the Strip? I will definitely give it a try and hope to do it when the sun goes down and with champagne!
I will def be giving it a go when it is ready, cant see what is not to like about it.
Arrive next week so no chance on this trip.
Vital Vegas is doing a good job of keeping up with the progress of the project. It's alot more complete than the OP article.
Hang out on the London board, and you'll see billions (approximate) of questions on the London Eye. Somebody finds these things worthwhile.
Well I found it pretty boring, everyone's got different opinions on things. I still think once you have been on one, they are all the same, OK different view but in LV you can see that view from many places.
