Singapore’s observation Ferris wheel will remain shut pending a probe into a fire that caused it to break down
The world’s biggest observation wheel will remain shut pending a probe into a fire that led to a break down while 173 passengers were suspended mid-air, for six hours Singapore police said Thursday.
“There was apparently a fire that caused damage to the Flyer’s control system,” Singapore police said in a statement.
It said the Flyer would resume operations once its structural and mechanical system had been certified safe by an internationally recognized body.
The power cut was the fourth such incident since the wheel opened earlier this year.
At 165 meters (540 feet), the Singapore Flyer is 30 meters taller than the London Eye.
