Hey, it was fun. It can be really relaxing. Spinning the car made it fun if you wanted some thrill out of it. Also, they keep you up there for a pretty long while, so that gives it some points

This is a fun ride, but when i went on it with my friends back in 1999 (the only time ive been on it btw) They almost had a heartattack when i attempted to turn the wheel, so i never got to spin it lol. Sure, i too was a bit nervous about turning it... you know, i turn the wheel and the car breaks free and plummets to the ground...but i doubt that would happen! This is a very unique ferris wheel, its really 2 claw looking wheels on a huge see-saw boom. The boom lowers one wheel while lifting the other one. Its a great idea! The ride is being loaded while others are enjoying their ride. There are 3 armed versions of this ride but both of the ones in the US have been taken down I beleive. EDIT: And now I dont think there are any more 2 armed wheels left in the US either...RIP Giant Wheel.

I am scared to death of this ride. Heights terrify me and this ride is definitely not good for people like me. Its neat to look at and some of my other family members enjoy it. Id much rather ride the Kissing Tower. Its not nearly as frightening.

A good, unique ride. Good way to see around the front part of the park. And if you are not that fond of heights and have someone in your "bucket" that insists on using that wheel in the center to spin the thing around, it can turn into a border line thrill ride as well.

Few parks have these Intamin double ferris wheels, when one side is in the air rotating, the other is on the ground loading passengers. I think its a neat ride to watch and it provides a great observing experience at the top.
