When it comes to ferris wheels, size does matter. The ferris wheel is an iconic symbol of amusement parks and carnivals everywhere and some are undoubtedly bigger and more impressive than others. But which country has the largest ferris wheel in the world?
The answer is China. China is home to the world’s largest ferris wheel, the Star of Nanchang. This wheel is a whopping 160 meters (530 feet) tall and was opened in May 2006. It is located in Nanchang, Jiangxi province, in the south-central part of the country. It consists of a total of 60 cabins, each able to hold up to 8 passengers. The wheel takes a total of 30 minutes to complete a full rotation and offers stunning views of the city and surrounding countryside.
What makes the Star of Nanchang such an impressive sight? Firstly, it’s the sheer size. At 160 meters tall, it towers over the city skyline and is visible from far and wide. This makes it truly a sight to behold. Secondly, the wheel has been designed with the utmost attention to detail. Each cabin has a unique design, with a different color scheme and pattern, giving it a unique and eye-catching look. The wheel is also illuminated at night, further adding to its grandeur.
The Star of Nanchang is just one of many impressive ferris wheels located in China. Other notable wheels include the Beijing Great Wheel and the Shanghai Ferris Wheel. But none can quite compare to the sheer size and grandeur of the Star of Nanchang. It is truly a sight to behold and is a reminder that when it comes to ferris wheels, size really does matter.
