The Oriental Pearl Radio & TV Tower (Chinese: 东方明珠塔;东方明珠广播电视塔) is a TV tower in Shanghai.

Its Construction began in 1991, and the tower was completed in 1994.

The bottom sphere houses a VR Roller Coaster and futuristic space city; the middle sphere offers 360° view of the city while walking on transparent glass and a revolving restaurant; and the third sphere hasa 5D Cinema (not a typo) and old-school arcade with dozens of games.,

The two largest spheres, along the length of the tower, have diameters of 50 m (164 ft) for the lower and 45 m (148 ft) for the upper. They are linked by three columns, each 9 m (30 ft) in diameter. The highest sphere is 14 m (46 ft) in diameter.
