(Macau).- Developers in Macau have unveiled plans to build one of the world’s tallest Ferris wheels, embedded into the façade of a giant entertainment complex. The Golden Eye, currently under construction on Macau’s Cotai Strip, is slated to open this summer.

Inspired by Gotham City – the fictional home of Batman – the Art Deco-esque resort is already expected to include 1,600 hotel rooms , 400 gambling tables, a 5,000-capacity sports venue, a Pacha nightclub, a TV studio, and a 300,000ft sq mall. There will also be a DC Comics-branded entertainment centre featuring a virtual reality ride called Batman Dark Flight and a Wonder Woman-themed go-karting track.

Now details of the 130-metre-tall Ferris wheel, which will sit on the side of the resort’s main building, have emerged. Just a shade smaller than the London Eye, which is 135 metres tall, the Golden Eye resembles a figure of eight, and was reportedly inspired by “two asteroids blasting through a Gotham City building”.

To help ensure its success, Studio City is said to have paid Robert De Niro, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt $13 million a-piece to star in, and Martin Scorcese a further $13 million to direct, an advertisement masquerading as a short film, called The Audition.
