The idea behind the MOA Eye is after the London Eye in England and Singapore Flyer in Singapore, the MOA Eye is now the new tourist attraction this holiday season and it will stay forever in SM Mall of Asia. The MOA Eye is operated by SM Prime Holdings and S & T Leisure Worldwide Inc., Pacific Leisure Group (a Philippine entity), they are dedicated to its mission in giving the grandest and the biggest to the Filipino people.
To ride the MOA Eye, you need to pay a P150 per person, and here you can experience a 10 min. ride around the MOA Eye, I haven't tried the ride yet, because last night is the lighting ceremony and blessing, and the start of its operation is today Dec 17, 2011, I got tickets here with me, and hopefully I can try riding it tomorrow with my family.
The 10 min. ride looks like a one complete turn and they say that the ferris wheel moves slowly and here you can see the entire Manila in birds eye view.
