Passengers stranded on Singapore Flyer, GM says they "a bit disturbed". WTF!

steven

I think they should change the tagline below the Singapore Flyer logo to this: "A moving experience at every turn. A harrowing experience when not turning." More than hundred people got that harrowing experience when the world's biggest observation wheel stopped for about six hours yesterday. 10 passengers even had to be lowered down by rope!

Steven Yeo, the general manager of the Singapore Flyer says that some trapped passengers were "a bit disturbed" by the experience. A bit disturbed? Steven, try getting stuck in one of your capsules for 6 hours, with no where to pee, and the music over your PA system driving you crazy and then, you still have to abseil down to safety. Let us know if you feel "a bit disturbed" after that. Photos here, here and some videos here and here.

Well done Singapore Flyer. You're in the news all over the world. Good luck in getting some new customers for 2009.

The people who are right at the top must be scared shitless when they look down to see the passengers from the lower capsules are abseiling down.

The part about the person complaining that music over the PA system driving her crazy is funny.

Perm Sec can save 100K if he knows this. Perm Sec can be shifted out of his comfort zone just by taking the Singapore Flyer. No need to waste 100K to go to Paris. It surely will be a little bit stressful.
