Christmas is still a few weeks away, but we happen to already know what Shanghai is getting, its very own rooftop Ferris wheel, opening on Christmas Eve.
The Ferris wheel in question (aka the “Sky Wheel”) is built on top of a shopping mall known as Joy City (新靜安大悅城) that is located just outside of Qufu Road Station on Shanghai Metro Lines 8 and 12. The ride has 30 carriages each capable of holding up to four people, and offers amazing views of the nearby Suzhou Creek and the Huangpu River.
Check out some concept art to get into the spirit:
Hopefully, this will tide everyone over until Shanghai Disneyland finally opens.
