Traditional Fairground Ferris Wheel Hire

One of the most iconic traditional rides available, this is superb when you need something a little slower for those who don’t want to be turned upside down and inside out. Big wheels have been a regular fixture at funfairs throughout the world for over 100 years, George Washington Gale Ferris Jr. designing the first ever one in 1893.

Its not only a super attraction, but being so high, makes a landmark centrepiece for any event, being visible all over your venue the Ferris Wheel is a standout attraction.

Ferris Wheel For Hire

Big Wheel Hire

The Ferris or Big Wheel, is one of the mainstays of any funfair event. Its one of those  rides like the Carousel or Helter Skelter that is instantly familiar to anyone.

Basically the ride consists of two giant spoked wheels parallel to each other, between them are suspended a number of cars for the riders to sit in. As the ride turns the cars remain upright due to being mounted on a rotating axle.

Our rides need around 44ft width and 35ft depth for installation, we have used them successfully at many indoor venues, though obviously they do need suitable headroom.

There are even bigger wheels out there, usually referred to as a continental wheel, these can be supplied, but for anything less than a major event they are prohibitively expensive due to the logistics required to transport and install them

Ferris Wheel History

The very first wheel of a type that would be familiar nowadays  was called the Chicago Wheel and designed by George Washington Gale Jr. It was 264ft (80.2) metres high and was the tallest attraction at the Worlds Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893.

There are historic depictions of pleasure wheels going back as far as the 1600’s  with the same basic idea though obviously with a more primitive design.

The oldest surviving wheel is the antique Weiner Riesenrad in Vienna, built in 1897 and has cabins for groups of people to gather in rather than seats as are traditional nowadays.
