Editor’s note: The world’s tallest Ferris aka Observation Wheels are currently under construction. They are located in the U.S., where such big wheels were invented (1893) and in Dubai. To celebrate, this millennium’s world wide fascination with giant observation wheels, this blog is launching a year long series of monthly posts on Ferris Wheels from around the World. We started [Pillar to Post blog July 20, 2016] in Chicago, where a 33 year old engineer George Washington Ferris invented and had built the world’s first Ferris Wheel in 1893. Each following month we’ll spotlight another Ferris Wheel somewhere else in the world. This month we’re in Dubai.
