Presumably because they didn’t want to put in the effort to best the world’s tallest Ferris Wheel (located in Singapore), the Chinese have gone ahead and created a completely different category of world’s highest Ferris Wheel.
Located atop the 450 meter tall Guangzhou Tower, 130 yuan will buy you 20 minutes of Guangzhou gazing when the attraction opens on September 1st.
When we first read the headline, we were excited. After seeing the pics, we’re still a little impressed, but mainly disappointed. Sure, with wind and all it’d be practically impossible to actually build a Ferris Wheel atop the Guangzhou Tower, but we would hardly count this contraption as a Ferris Wheel — more like a boring roller coaster or “multi-roomed rotating observation deck.”
