Apparently, the Melbourne Wheel is closed six weeks after its opening due to structural buckling.
Quote from ABC News:
"Melbourne's Southern Star Observation Wheel has been temporarily closed because of structural concerns."
"The $40 million wheel formally opened for business about six weeks ago, and has 21 observation capsules."
Sometimes, I question all these wheels that were all modelled after the success of the London Eye. Are they all profitable? What is the return on investment? How is the effect on tourism? Is it necessarily a good idea?
Update thanks to ol' Kuoby who was back in Singapore for a visit. It was great seeing him after eight or nine years.
