Delhi’s Eye in the Sky

The first and original Ferris Wheel was designed and built in Chicago by George Washington Gale Ferris Jr. Since then, it has become a must-have for most parks and fairs. And over time it has gone under further development with the Wheel getting bigger and bigger. Currently, the High Roller, located in Las Vegas is the tallest Ferris wheel (550ft).

These wheels are used to give the riders, who are the cabins, an aerial view of the surrounding area. Therefore, the higher the better. In the past decade, the trend for setting up ginormous Ferris wheels for tourism has been slowly catching on. The first one having been set up in Paris during the Y2K celebration. And now, even Delhi is in view.
