Want to visit the newest themepark and ferris wheel attraction in Manila? Then head tomorrow December 16, 2011 to the SM Mall of Asia or SM MOA as this popular mall will open its uber the top attraction to the public. The SM MOA’s Ferris Wheel called the SM MOA EYE wheel is now the tallest ferris wheel in the country! There is more and more reasons to visit the capital city as you can now enjoy not only Star City but the SM MOA Eye and the theme park where it is at.
Located just across the SM IMAX parking lot, this giant ferris wheel towers at 160 feet overlooking the fame Manila Bay. The ferris wheel carriages and coaches are air-conditioned so its perfect to ride up even if the day is hot. Fee to ride the Philippines’ tallest ferris wheel is at P150 per person, vip gondolas are to be pegged at P200. And the more awesome news is that the SM Moa Eye is located inside the SM amusement park complex, and entrance to the theme park is free and you only have to pay for the rides that you want to try out. Once fully completed, this theme park will be home to 30 or so different heart pumping rides and spectacular attractions. I hope they will have a carousel there too as carousels are perfect backdrop of pictures hehhe. I will be updating this post with the pics of the SM Moa Eye and the official opening and closing time of the sm amusement park. Watch out for that!

It is also best to time your visit to the Mall of Asia during Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays this holiday season as they also have spectacular fireworks display at around 7 to 8:30pm as well as the hugely popular Christmas Parade. You can even try out Ice Skating at Moa’s ice skating rink =).
All Manilenos probably know this already but for those who does not know yet how to go to SM Mall of Asia (sm moa), find yourself under the LRT Taft Station for under it there are jeepneys plying the SM MOA route. Fare is only P8.00.
