Japan's newest and biggest Ferris wheel to have transparent floors
When finished the Redhorse Osaka Wheel will become the fifth tallest in the world at just over 400 feet. According to Foxnews, what makes the Redhorse wheel stand out is the fact that it will have 72 passenger cabins with transparent floors to allow users see the ground below. Japan Today reports that it will take 18 minutes to complete one full rotation when it is ready to become fully operational in July. Riders will be offered top-class views over the Expo 70 Commemorative Park. The park is well positioned as nearby there is a mall, aquarium, cinema, zoo and a museum.
While ticket price levels have yet to be disclosed for the Redhorse, it is known that there will be two luxurious VIP cabins for the brave high flyers. The Bangkok Post reports that a major Russian company is looking to erect a Ferris wheel in Phuket, Thailand that would be one of the tallest in the world, but as yet, they have not revealed the final measurements. The current Ferris record holder is the High Roller in Las Vegas, which is 550 feet at its highest point.
