A little about the Ferris wheel:
Ferris wheel or big wheel a fun ride consisting of a straight wheel with many passenger loads (commonly called passenger cars, chambers, tubes, capsules, gondolas, or pods) attached to such an edge as the wheel rotates, kept upright, usually gravity. Some modern Ferris wheels have cars parked outside the rim, with electric motors to independently rotate each car to keep it stationary. These wheels are sometimes referred to as watch wheels and their vehicles are called capsules. However, these different terms are used with wheels with cars that are accustomed to gravity.
The original Ferris Wheel was designed and built by George Washington Gale Ferris Jr. as a historic site of the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. The common Ferris wheel name, now used in American English for all of these purposes, has become the most common form of entertainment at state shows in the United States.
Ferris was not the first to think about this wheel. In fact, a carpenter named William Somers built 50-foot [50 m] wooden wheels at Asbury Park, Atlantic City, and Coney Island; round, it cost, and he also got a patent for his design. But Ferris was not challenged to think big; A large number of attendees encouraged him to bet more. He spent $ 25,000 on security courses, hired many engineers, hired investors. On December 16, 1892, his wheel was chosen to turn Eiffel. It was about 1,600 feet [250 m] wide, and it carried 36 vehicles, each with a capacity of 60 people.
More than 100,000 parts went into the Ferris wheel, especially the 89,320-pound axis that had to be lifted from two 140-foot-high [140 m] towers in the air. Launched on June 21, 1893, it was a remarkable achievement. Over the next 19 weeks, more than 1.4 million people paid 50 cents for a 20-minute ride and accessed the few aerial panoramas ever seen. “It’s an indescribable fact,” writes journalist Robert Graves, “that it would take a huge roundabout run in the birdhouse.”
But when the right gates were closed, Ferris was immersed in a series of tire-related litigation regarding the debts owed to suppliers and that the right owed him. In 1896, running out of money and suffering from typhoid fever, he died at the age of 37. The erroneous company bought the tire and sold it at the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Petersburg. Two years later, it was reduced to rubble.
Thus died only one official Ferris wheel. But the invention is based on a universal imitation of the joy Ferris has made possible. The immortal Eiffel icon undoubtedly has a unique pièce. But on boardwalks, circuit assemblies, and regional festivals around the world millions roam the sky in neon-lit wheels and know the feeling that, years ago, Joni Mitchell put it into words. She sang “Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels,” “how you feel dizzy.” Summer riders know what you mean.
