Melaka Revolving Tower or Melaka Taming Sari stands 110 meters (361 feet). The revolving platform takes you from the ground, then spirals and revolves as it ascends to a height of 80 meters. It seats 66 people, and the ride takes 7 minutes. The tower is built with advanced Swiss technology, and is said to have the ability of absorbing earthquakes measuring 10 richter scales. This is Malaysia’s first and only Gyro Tower which opened April 18 2008. A ride up the tower costs 10 ringgit per person if you are Malaysian, but 20 ringgit if you're a foreigner.
