The metal frame design of the "Eye of the Bohai Sea" is inspired by the dragon's back. The whole roulette wheel is like a "dragon spine" with head and tail, which is like a dragon at sea. The diamond-shaped woven grid implies the energy of the dragon, forming a unique landscape of the integration of the wheel and bridge. Approximately 4,600 tons of steel were used to build the ferris wheel big wheel. The scales formed by the steel tube are clearly visible.
There is no support in the middle, the wheel does not rotate during operation. The car has a walking mechanism, which rotates along with the wheel through the track.
The design of the Bailang River ferris wheel big wheel is inspired by the kite design concept of Weifang, which is the capital of kites. The whole design is supported by the form of mesh weaving, like two giant dragons echoing from end to end!
