Now a mainstay of theme parks and fairs, the Ferris wheel debuted at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, United States.

How to Celebrate?

  • Visit your closest theme park and spend time riding the Ferris wheel.
  • Since it is also Valentine’s Day, why not take your loved one with you on a Ferris wheel?
  • Learn more about the science and technology behind Ferris wheels.

Did You Know…

…that the world’s largest Ferris wheel is 167.6 m or 550 feet tall? The High Roller, as it is called, can be found in Las Vegas.
