Disneyland California Adventure And The Ferris Wheel (Sun Wheel)

We enjoy Disneyland and go there at least 2-3 times a month, sometimes more!  These photos are in the Ferris (Sun) wheel at California Adventure.

We go to Disneyland about 2-3 times a month to visit and dance and people-watch!

The Sun Wheel
Paul must love Sue as he gets into these steel wired cages and spins at 80 miles an hour over 1,000 feet in the sky!

 

Did You Know? - The Ferris wheel is named after Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute graduate George Washington Gale Ferris, Jr., who designed a 264 foot (80 meter) wheel for the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Illinois in 1893.

It was designed as a rival to the Eiffel Tower, the centerpiece of the 1889 Paris exhibition. This first wheel could carry 2,160 persons at a time; The Ferris wheel was the largest attraction at the Columbian Exposition standing over 250' tall and powered by two 1000 HP steam engines.

There were 36 cars each the size of a school bus that accommodated 60 people each (20 seated, 40 standing). It took 20 minutes for the wheel to make two revolutions - the first to make six stops to allow passengers to exit and enter; the 2nd a single non-stop revolution - and for that, the ticket holder paid 50 cents.

The wheel was moved twice after the 1893 Fair and was eventually destroyed (by controlled demolition) in 1904 after it was used at the St. Louis exposition of that year. At 70 tons, its axle was the largest steel forging of the time. It was 26 stories tall, only a quarter of the Eiffel Tower's height.
