Diamond and Flower Ferris wheel in Tokyo ~ With its history of technological prowess & its love of architecture (not to mention that the centerpiece of the country’s national flag is a big circle) Japan is a perfect match for the modern Ferris wheel. The elegant Diamond & Flower Ferris wheel has the tallest recreational circumference in Japan. Its 364-ft diameter is trussed together with uniquely patterned spokes. At night, the illuminated attraction glows with the crystalline & floral aspects.
The Texas Star in Dallas ~ What goes better together than a good ol’ American state fair & a huge Ferris wheel? A main attraction of the annual celebration in Dallas, the Lone Star State’s main Ferris wheel is fittingly the tallest in the U.S. At 212 ft in height, the attraction shows riders views of the midway below and out beyond into the vast Texas horizon, with the high-rises of nearby Dallas and distant Fort Worth as reference points. At night, the wheel is illuminated in red, white & blue.
Grizzly River Run is a six-minute white-water rafting ride as if the rider is in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains at Disney California Adventure park at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California.
