Although Ferris wheels are different in the structures and shapes, they represent the imprints of different eras respectively, leaving deep cultural connotation and social significance. From the current situation, the future development trend of the Ferris wheel is as follows:
1. The height and diameter of the Ferris wheel show an increasing trend. The Ferris wheel as a whole has developed from the initial tens of meters to the current hundreds of meters, constantly setting new world records in the height. From the perspective of the development process of the Ferris wheel, there are many Ferris wheels over 100 meters, and the excitement brought by the increase of height has always drawn the designer's mind.
2. The modern Ferris wheel pays more attention to the safety, comfort, and entertainment of the design. When the Ferris wheel designed in the early time was in operation, there was a significant shaking in the cabin lift. The passengers in the cabin lift could feel obvious discomfort, especially for the elderly, who had more psychological fear. At the same time, the equipment in the cabin lift is monotonous, with only the places to sit on. While the Ferris wheel designed now has a more luxurious interior decoration. It has entertainment services such as an air restaurant, a bathroom, a bar, and KTV, and some even install colorful lights of different colors, which can bring different visual experiences for tourists when shining at night.
3. It pays more attention to the perfect combination with the local landscape. For example, the "London Eye" in the UK is built on the banks of the Thames in London, where visitors can not only experience the excitement of riding a Ferris wheel but also can visit the local places of interest and beautiful scenery, reducing the monotony of tourists travel.
4. It tends to be more integrated with local buildings. The "Tianjin Eye" Ferris wheel in Tianjin, China, combining with the local bridge structure, which has realized the effective unity of the multi-functionalization of various building structures. What's more, the "Kaohsiung Eye" Ferris wheel in Taipei, China, was designed upstairs, which not only reduces the floor space but also increases the position of the highest point of the Ferris wheel, allowing visitors to view the scenery further. "The Canton Tower " Ferris wheel in Guangzhou, China, was built on the tower of the Canton Tower, making the Ferris wheel reach an unimaginable height.
