Good afternoon Mingalagyis,

I saw that old Ferris Wheel the other day by Inya lake while I was on Kaba Aye pagoda road. Curious I stopped there to see how it was, but actually the wheel seems really old, painting cracking all over and not really maintained.

Has anyone ever tried this Ferris Wheel, is it safe ? Is it even working actually ?

I think that could be quite cool to ride this wheel and have a top view of the Lake, but I fear that as soon as I am in, it will just crumble away and fall. 

 

Anyone keen on sharing his/her experience on that wheel would be appreciated  ;)

Hi Big foot, I have tried more than 3 times that old ferris wheel. The wheel goes around very slowly so it is safe, but the windows are broken already and not safe for young children. Note. the wheel goes only one round for one time. Do you want to ride 2/3times??? Please buy 2/3tickets and give to the guard. :-) Enjoin the ride, Ros

Hi Ros,

 

Wow, I didn't know that its still working. How's the scenery on the top? I haven't try a ferry's wheel more that 15 years, and Im still hesitant to try again :wacko: .

Hi teton, Don't be hesitate to try it. Just bring your camera and go up. :P We are looking forward to see the photos... ;) Actually, I couldn't enjoyed the scenery on the top well since I went with my 5years old nephew. As I told, the windows are broken already and had to be very careful with the inside situation. :(

Hi Ros,

 

I will pass on this one :wacko: . I feel sick the last time I try, i remember i'm sweating cold and my stomach turning up-side down.

 

Yup, you need to be very compose to watch over your nephew. You should try it again so you can have a good view on the scenery on top.
