Eye on Malaysia was launched in conjunction of the Visit Malaysia Festival 2007 which runs from January 6 to December 31, 2007. It is open from 10:00AM till 10:00PM daily.
It is touted as "the largest portable observation wheel in the world". Well, basically it is something like the gondolas of cable cars and yes, the gondolas are quite small. It is best if there are not more than 6 of you otherwise ... It is supposed to seat 8! Definitely only for smaller sized people.
Since it will only be in Malaysia until 31 Dec 2007, we quickly took the opportunity to visit it while in Kuala Lumpur.
We were there on a Sunday night but there was only a short queue. Luckily it was night time and dark so it wasn't so scary but even then, my legs felt jelly-like sometimes when I looked down! When inside, you better not move a lot or else the gondola is going to swing! A day ride is better if you want to view more of KL. The workers were very polite.
There are many security personnel actively on duty around the place so it definitely feels safe. Many people were strolling in the park around it.
We had nice iced peach lemon tea at the cafe, The Eye while watching the laser show. Yes, the show was enjoyable.

Located at Lake Titiwangsa, its abit far from Titiwangsa Station. From KLCC, take bus 114 from the bus stop (near the metered taxi line). Paid RM2 bus fare. Keep the ticket as it can be used for the whole day. Stop at the second last bus stop (ask the locals if unsure). We missed the stop and ended up at Titiwangsa Station, but do not get down (or pay anymore). Carry on sitting and tell the bus driver you're going to the eye on. He'll drop you there. Missing the stop turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as the earlier stop was opposite a highway. Take a short walk in and you'll see the wheel. Can't miss it.
There are laser shows on the lake, promoting some of Malaysia's destinations. Very interesting to watch. The twin towers are also visible from the lake.
The tickets for Eye On is RM15 for adults, RM8 for senior citizens. Piece of advise, try not to visit the ferries wheel after it rains as the cabins get misty and you can't see much from inside. The ride is about 15-20 mins, well worth the money. You'll have to share your cabins if its very crowded.
When leaving, you'll have to cross the highway to the bus stop. Not much of a problem since there was a jam, but beware of motorcycles riding between the cars. Board 114 again, show the driver your tix and hop off at Titiwangsa if you're travelling by rail.
It is huge and tall.. located at Titiwangsa. I'm not sure how long it's going to be there but we got a chance to get on it. 1 private gondola costs RM100 for 8 persons. We took a bus from KLCC to titiwangsa- RM2/person.
