Observation wheel without a centre!!

Ferris wheel standing at 142.52 m (467 ft 7 in) tall, this impressive structure on the shore of the Bohai Sea in Weifang, is the Tallest center less observation in the world and aims to attract more tourists to the area.While a conventional Ferris wheel contains a centre with spokes coming off it, this one built by Weifang Bailang River Scenic Spot Management Co. Ltd., China Construction Sixth Engineering Division Corp, Ltd. and Zhejiang Juma Amusement Equipment Co., Ltd has no such thing.Instead of rotating, the wheel itself in China's Shandong Province remains stationary and acts more like a track with the cabins moving around the outside.Into the record-breaking wheel it took the builders four years to build foundations and weave 4,600 tons of steel pipes, which has 36 viewing cabins that take up to 10 people each on a 30-minute journey.On the Bailang RiverBridge which is 540 metres long and consists of a 190-metre-long main bridge and 350-metre-long approach, the wheel has been built on the double-deck.The main bridge contains two levels; the upper part is a road for motor vehicles while the lower part is pedestrianised and also the entrance of the Ferris wheel. The metal frame design of "the eye of the Bohai Sea" is inspired by the back of the flood dragon with the whole wheel designed to look like a ridge and in the shape of the dragon going to sea.
