It was November 2011 when I noticed the construction of the ferris wheel at the mini theme park of SM Mall of Asia, when I go back in the area February 2012 it was already operational. I learned that it opened last December 16, 2011.
The SM MOA Eye is the largest and tallest ferris wheel here in the Philippines as it towers 160 feet. Just like the Singapore flyer and the London Eye it is bears resemblance to an eye because by riding it you can have the best view of the area.

It has 36 gondolas and 6 of it are the VIP gondolas. Each gondolas can accommodate 6 persons. For the regular gondolas which are the 30 are in fully air conditioned, with seats, and clear windows, while the VIP gondolas which are also in fully air conditioned has a leather seats and with tinted windows.

And it is also important to be aware and take note of the safety rules which are being posted near the ticket booth. And it states:
Location: SM Mall of Asia Amusement Park, along the Seaside Bay
Fees: Entance Fee for the Amusement Park is free
- Regular Gondola : P150 / person
- VIP Gondola : P200 / person
The best time for me to ride the SM MOA Eye is during:
- the Sunset
- the weekend nights fireworks display
