Amateur crooners in Japan's capital city can now literally take their singing to new heights. Travel + Leisure reports that the Big-O, a popular local Ferris wheel located in the Tokyo Dome City entertainment complex, recently received karaoke machines in some of its cars as part of a collaboration with karaoke company Joysound.

Visitors who take a 15-minute spin in one of the attraction's eight tricked-out gondolas can choose from a selection of popular songs ranging from Disney themes like Frozen's "Let It Go" to an assortment of 50 classic pop tracks. Each car fits up to four riders—just enough people for a sky-high party.

The Big-O costs 820 yen (about $7.50) per trip. Luckily for karaoke fans, they won't be charged extra to enjoy its musical gondolas. To learn more about the ride that's being billed as the world's first karaoke-themed Ferris wheel, visit Tokyo Dome City's website.
