This week in Dubai, plans were announced to build the tallest ferris wheel in the world. The Dubai Eye will top all other roller coasters at 689 feet.
Let's put that in perspective.
Washington Monument (555 feet, 5 inches)
London Eye (443 feet)
The Dubai Eye will be over TWICE as tall as Big Ben (316 feet)
The Leaning Tower of Pisa is TEENY in comparison. At a mere 183 feet, you could stack three of these buildings on top of each other, and still be shorter than the Dubai Eye.
While the Eiffel Tower WILL still be taller, it's not by much. It measures in at 1,063 feet, with a small margin over the Dubai Eye.
This is a view of London from about 700 feet. Think you could stomach it from a ferris wheel?
So, would YOU accept the challenge and ride the tallest ferris wheel in the world?
