Since George Washington Gale Ferris Jr. introduced his invention in 1893, Ferris wheels have been delighting young and old. Rotating from the Harbourside Amphitheatre at Darling Harbour is the Star of the Show. This 101 foot amusement ride features 24 gondolas. Passengers can manually control the observation car’s rotation for optimal 360° views. Equally enjoyable at night is the colorful display provided by the changing LED lights. This Ferris wheel travels throughout Australia. Hopefully, it is in Sydney when you are.
