Londan Eyes
The London Eye is a huge Ferris wheel located on the banks of the famous river of London, Thames. The entire construction is about 135 meters tall, with a wheel having a diameter of 120 meters. Being the tallest Ferris wheel in Europe, London Eye becomes the most famed tourist attraction in the United Kingdom, explored by 3.5 million tourists, every year. When established in 1999, London Eye was the biggest Ferris wheel in the world, until exceeded first by 160 m tall Star of Nanchang in 2006, and later the 165 m tall Singapore Flyer in the year 2008. However, the wheel is still described as the world's biggest cantilevered observation wheel by its operators.
Also known as Millennium Wheel, London Eye was officially named, British Airways London Eye buy later it changed to the Merlin Entertainments London Eye. However, from 20th January, 2011, it is gifted with a new official name, EDF Energy London Eye, followed by a three year sponsorship deal. The actual position of this incredible structure is at the western end of Jubilee Gardens in the London Borough of Lambeth, on the South Bank of the River Thames amidst Westminster Bridge and Hungerford Bridge. The site falls near former Dome of Discovery that was constructed for the famous Festival of Britain in the year 1951.
The beautiful air-conditioned ovoidal passenger capsules of London Eye are designed and supplied by a North American aerial lift manufacturer, Leitner-Poma. The structures nestles 32 capsules, which are strongly attached to the outer circumference of the wheel and further revolved by electric motors. Each capsule of London Eye represents one of the London Boroughs and has a capacity to hold 25 people, who can freely move and enjoy the outer view of London Eye. Every ride of London Eye comprises one rotation, which is completed in 30 minutes. The highlight of London Eye is its astonishing lightening which looks gorgeous after sundown.
An amazing feature about this wonder is that it generally doesn’t stop to take any passenger as the speed of the rotation is sufficiently enough to allow passengers get on and off from the moving capsules at ground level. However, it stops, to get older and disabled passengers safely. London Eye makes you see the whole town, at one go. Being up in the air, getting to see the whole city with family and friends is simply incredible and a perfect outing. The attraction is truly not less than any wonder.
