The moment you have all been waiting for is finally here! … well, no, not that one. Shanghai’s very own rooftop Ferris wheel is now open for business. woohoo!
Its official opening was February 6th. When we first reported on the Ferris wheel in early December it was scheduled to open on Christmas Eve, don’t know what happened with that. But no matter now!
The “Sky Wheel” is built on top of Joy City Shopping Mall in southern Zhabei District, 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.
Hopefully, this will tide everyone over until Shanghai Disneyland finally opens.
