It features over three types of cabins – Observation Cabins, Social Cabins and Private Cabins.
The Observation Cabins will offer ‘never-before-seen instagrammable 360-degree views’ of the dynamic city.
In addition, the Social Cabins also feature beverage-inclusive packages, and passengers can upgrade to a premium cabin for ‘VIP treatment.
Passengers can also book a ticket for the Sky Bar Cabins, which serve drinks as the wheel rotates.
Last but definitely not least, the Private Cabins are geared towards events offering celebration packages for those who host birthdays, weddings, cultural festivities, business functions and other events of this nature.
Each rotation on the wheel takes approximately 38 minutes, though passengers can book two rotations of roughly 76 minutes.
