The Giant Ferris Wheel – The MOA Eye

100_8186

Jogging at the SM Mall of Asia for almost every other day or about four to five times a week for several years now made me see all the changes and developments of the place.  I witnessed the Mall of Asia’s “development”, from the time the first foundations of the first establishments were put-up until its inaugurations.  Before the new shops, attractions and almost all the establishments are launched to the public I witnessed almost all of them built from scratches. Because of this it got me into considering putting a special category in this blog titled “Dissecting the Mall of Asia” (nice idea isn’t it?).  I am one lucky “urbanista” having to live conveniently near the SM Mall of Asia.  It is not only an awesome place to go but for me, it is also very informative.

And as usual during my regular running routine at MOA’s bay area, sometime in September of this year, I saw these humongous metals piled up in the bay area and I was wondering what are those for.  Again, I witnessed how it was put-up one by one and how it materialized into one huge form of a giant ferris wheel.  I never failed to gasp each running morning when I see that a new metal installment is added. It was really one exciting experience having to witness such a huge structure built right before my eyes.  Unfortunately, my camera was not with me during those runs as I usually run “light” when I’m doing serious running.  Luckily though two days after it’s lightning ceremony on December 16, I have with me my camera and I am able to take some photos and here I am sharing them with you, plus the details about the Giant Ferris Wheel at the Mall of Asia also known as The MOA Eye.
    • It is called The MOA Eye, The Tallest and Biggest Ferris Wheel in the Philippines.  It was named after the “London Eye”.  It is also called the “observation wheel”
    • It is bigger than the Enchanted Kingdom’s Wheel of Fate in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, Philippines
    • It measures 55-foot tall (175 feet) with 36 air-conditioned gondolas, each capable of seating up to six persons,  averaging 10-15 minutes full circle.
    • a 10 minute ride will cost you PhP 150.00
    • It is located at San Miguel Bay City breakwaters of Manila Bay in the SM Mall of Asia amusement complex
A really nice photo opportunity Winking smile
