What Is Ferris Wheel?

A Ferris wheel, sometimes called an observation wheel, big wheel, wheel ride, panoramic wheel or giant wheel, is the most traditional attraction among amusement rides the whole family can enjoy. Ferris wheel is named after its creator. The Ferris wheel’s synonym is the fair wheel, but observation wheel is more suitable with Ferris wheel meaning. The big wheel consists of a large rotating vertical wheel structure with multiple carrying parts (commonly referred to rider cars, gondolas, carts, carriages, cabins, basket or buckets) mounted to the inside or outside of the rim. Motors and gears force send the gondolas hinged to the rim up to air and the force of gravity drive it down. While Ferris wheel is set in motion, the rim revolves around a horizontal axle in a circle, and the riders in the gondolas are lifted and lowered in turn. As Ferris wheel revolves, the riders can get a bird’s-eye view of the area.

Ferris Wheel’s Unique Features

1. Ferris wheel is a slowly moving and sight-seeing amusement attraction unlike those thrilling rides like roller coaster aiming to let the riders obtain fast and exciting experience, which basically says its rider’s age is unlimited. Gear and motor force gently pull the wheel gondolas carrying riders into the air. When the riders reach the top of the Ferris wheel, they feel a force pushing them outward due to inertia and Neston’s first law. Even if the riders are pushed outward on the top, they still don’t feel a great acceleration because their weights push to the center of revolving, counteracting some force that pushes them outward. Therefore, when the riders get to the top of the Ferris wheel, they can peacefully enjoy the panoramic view of the place where the Ferris wheel is located.

Ferris Wheel’s History

The Ferris wheel has been more than 100 years old since it debuted on June 21, 1893.

George Washington Gale Ferris, a civil engineer from Illinois specializing in bridges and other steel structure designs, invented the first Ferris wheel for the World’s Columbia Exposition in Chicago. This engineering feat was intended to compete with Eiffel Tower, the centerpiece of 1889 Paris Exposition. This original Ferris wheel was 80.4 meters and was the tallest amusement equipment at 1893 Chicago exposition. There were 36 passenger gondolas with 40 revolving chairs and able to carry 2,160 passengers every ride. It took 20 minutes to make a complete turn.

After the Chicago World Fair was closed, the original Ferris wheel was shown on the 1904 St. Louis Exposition. After the exposition, the wheel was returned to Chicago and dismantled because of its too expensive operation cost. The metal from this original Ferris wheel was used to construct a giant ship during World WarⅠ.

Even though the first Ferris wheel doesn’t exist any longer, its legacy has lived on to make Ferris wheel one of the most popular fairground rides. All in all, the first giant wheel is the beginning and inspiration of modern Ferris wheel, for example, the London Eye, Skyview, Seattle Ferris whee, Paris Ferris wheel.
