COO of Eye On Malaysia says Singaporeans have a better deal with his ferris wheel

Malacca is taking on Singapore with its new ferris wheel called the Eye On Malaysia. It is the largest portable wheel in the world and the first overhanging a lake. Malacca hopes that Singaporeans will flock to its ferris wheel because the Singapore Flyer is too expensive. From NST:
Eye On Malaysia chief operating officer Adam Yong Abdullah said their biggest market would comprise Singaporeans and Malaysians, followed by Indonesians and other foreigners visiting the state. "We understand that Singapore has the tallest Ferris wheel in the world and a ride costs about RM80 per person. It will set a family of five back at least RM400 and for that amount, they can get a better deal here."
Here's a comparison of the ticket prices of the Singapore Flyer and Eye On Malaysia. Singapore Flyer charges S$29.50 for adult and S$20.65 for child while an adult ticket for Eye On Malaysia is only at RM 15 (S$6.27) and a child ticket will cost RM 8 (S$3.35)! No wonder he says Singaporeans get a better deal with his wheel!

i think both are unique on its own turf. spore is apparently the biggest one in the world now... with a city skyline.

malacca one is unique as well, and of course the biggest in the country.
