Standing at 165m tall, the newly-opened Singapore Flyer is currently the world's highest observation wheel.

I managed to get a ride up there, tickets can be purchased online:

Put a small bathroom on each car and I am set. I would like to see a restaurant or two along the way...it would be nice to do more stuff as it goes round.
