Don't know if it's been discussed before, but I thought it was interesting. It came from Yahoo news. http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20071105/od_uk_nm/oukoe_uk_china_greatwheel
682ft? I got nervous riding Americana at GL. I can't imagine riding one that tall.

Well, I rode the rather large hubless Intamin ferris Wheel at LaQua in Japan and it doesn't have much in common with our ferris wheels...
The wheels in Asia don't stop. Instead, they just move slowly, allowing people to get on and off. The one at LaQua also had AC in each cabin as well as an I-Pod that allow you to play music.

When I was there this summer, pollution wasn't a big problem. Granted, I wasn't 600' in the air, but Xian was MUCH worse for pollution. I think it'll be neat.
