VMY20007 and the Eye on Malaysia launched

The Prime Minister of Malaysia launched the Visit Malaysia Year (VMY) 2007 at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa together with the 60 metre tall Eye on Malaysia, the tallest Ferris wheel in South East Asia. It has 40 air-conditioned gondolas with a capacity of 8 passengers as well as a glass-bottom tinted glass gondola equiped with leather seats, DVD player, plasma screen TV and a fridge.

A 12 to 15 minutes ride on the regular gondola will cost RM15 (USD4.25) per adult and RM8 (USD2.26) for children, senior citizens and the disabled. A ride in the VIP gondala will set you back RM50 (USD14.16).

The ferris wheel will operate between 10am to 10pm daily. An "International Watersky Spectacular" will also be held every night from 8pm.

The ferris wheel will operate throughout 2007 and a decision on whether to continue after that has not yet been made.
