Starting on August 1, select visitors riding Tokyo Dome City's Big-O Ferris wheel will be able to sing their hearts out as they swing (rock?) high above Tokyo. The Japanese entertainment complex has added karaoke to eight of the Ferris wheel's 40 air-conditioned passenger cabins. Riders have fifteen minutes to belt out songs from the 50-song playlist which includes The Beatles' "Let it Be," and Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together."

And as their gondola reached the apex so too did their singing reach a climax. Singing so high up and alone was exhilarating, and even when singing songs for the first time, our boys were belting the lyrics out powerfully like a pair of peckish Pavarottis.
So surprisingly not only was karaoke on a Ferris wheel not a misfire, it turned out that the combination was even greater than the sum of its parts. The two amusements accentuated each other in ways they never could have imagined.
