Trends in Ferris Wheel Construction: Bigger, Taller, and Better Views

Through the development status of outdoor large Ferris wheels, I have a certain understanding of the structure of Ferris wheels. Although their structural shapes are different, they represent the imprints of different eras, leaving profound cultural connotations and social significance. From the current situation, the future development trend of outdoor large Ferris wheel is as follows:


1. The height and diameter of outdoor large Ferris wheels are showing an increasing trend


As a whole, the Ferris wheel has grown from the initial tens of meters to hundreds of meters now, constantly breaking new world records in terms of height. From the perspective of the development process of China Ferris wheel, there are seven Ferris wheels over 100 meters.

The Kaohsiung Eye Ferris Wheel in Chinese Taipei is designed upstairs, which not only reduces the footprint but also increases the location of the highest point of the Ferris wheel, allowing visitors to view the scenery further afield.
