China Has the World’s Tallest Spokeless Ferris Wheel

Ferris Wheels have been around for more than a century, but what makes the Bailang River Bridge Ferris Wheel so special is that it is the tallest Ferris Wheel in the world without spokes.

The “Hollow Ferris Wheel” in Weifang, China, stands roughly 476 feet tall — that’s more than 30 feet taller than the London Eye. Each of the wheel’s 36 carriages can carry up to 10 people and is outfitted with Wi-Fi and television sets.

A typical ride around the Ferris Wheel takes about 30 minutes.
