40 Free Ferris Wheel Images

It’s impossible to picture out an amusement park without a Ferris Wheel. Since the first rotating “pleasure wheels” debuted in 1893 at the World’s Fair in Chicago, many have followed the footsteps of George Washington Gale Ferris Jr. and created their versions of the wheel.

The first ever Ferris Wheel made by Ferris – a bridge builder – was 265 feet tall and weighed over two million pounds. One full ride took ten minutes. The Ferris Wheel had 36 seat compartments, and each one could carry a maximum of 60 passengers. When the wheel was fully loaded, it had 2,160 people on it.

These days, a Ferris wheel is a staple in parks and carnivals. Some of the most popular pleasure wheels in the world today are the following:
