The earliest Ferris wheels, called "pleasure wheels," were described by English traveler Peter Mundy in 1620. In Turkey, he saw a ride for children consisting of two vertically oriented wheels, each 20 feet (6 meters) across, supported by a large post on each side. A similar ride, called an "up-and-…down," was featured at the St. Bartholomew Fair of 1728 in England. In 1860, a hand-turned French pleasure wheel was developed that carried 16 passengers. By that time, Ferris wheels were also in use in the United States. One of the early models, in Walton Spring, Georgia, took the form of a large, wooden wheel. The first "true" Ferris wheel was created in 1893 by American bridge builder George Washington Gale Ferris (1859-1896). Ferris entered the plans for his wheel in a competition sponsored by the directors of the 1893 Columbian Exposition (in Chicago, Illinois). The directors... ( Full Answer )
A wheel that looks similar to the London eye, you find them at fairs. It is a giant metal wheel with seats around it for entertainment at fairgrounds

He invented and built it as a landmark for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago.
l892 and it was not completed until l893 for the Columbian Exposition. a fine if somewhat shady on details historical novel was done on the construction of the Wonder Wheel ( no.l, not the current one at Coney) called the Great Wheel by one Robert Lawson. one has to read between the lines to get at …some of the facts. the Wheel itself was largely subcontracted to Bethehem Steel and the cars were made by Pullman- and shipped to the Carnival site on flat cars which was surely an amusing sight. huge temporary railroad yards had to be set up- massive labor tasks- near the Fair grounds and right up to the ride site- this was also done with the Coney Island Wonder Wheel of l920. The ride was erected in the winter, which posed some problems for lodging for the many temporary workers- exactly how this was handled ( tents under the ride would be impractical on Lake Shore in Chicago)- the commissary needs were a simpler task- as food wagons could be moved around on site- the Western Chuch wagon idea- like today"s commissary trucks.

The axle of a Ferris wheel is the part that the wheel spins around. It is in the center of the whole construction. So when you say Ferris wheel you don't say Ferris wheel and axle, you just say Ferris wheel. ... or the same "why" is when folks say" WOKEN UP (dangling particple...inncorrect use)... i…nstead of the correct word..."Awaken" ... " I was "woken up" (Awakend) by the banging of trash can lids being thrown..." ( Full Answer )
There's no direct connections. You need to either drive north to Anacortes, WA and take the Washington State Ferries to Sidney, BC (Spring through Fall), or take the Washington State Ferry trip from Seattle to Bainbridge Island and drive north to Port Angeles and take the Black Ball Transportation f…erry to Victoria.

The number of gondolas on a Ferris wheel depends on the size and strength of the wheel and the motor that turns it. The Ferris wheel built for the Paris Exposition in 1890 had 36 gondolas, each capable of carrying 30 people. Smaller Ferris wheels used at county fairs may have only about a dozen seat…s, each large enough to hold only two or three people. ( Full Answer )

Yes; since a Ferris wheel is named after George Ferris, it does need to be capitalized. The 'wheel' part does not need a capital letter, but it is not incorrect to do so.
The first Ferris wheel was made when Mr. Ferris liked a girl so much he invented a wheel for her, but the girl fell off it and her family started hating Mr. Ferris. They started WWI. This is the real story. My name is Lauren Ferris. He was a relative.
Since its not usually documented, the opinions of an inventor are usually unknown. But I imagine that since ferris wheels generate fun, that the inventor wanted to make something that people found fun and exhilarating, since ferris wheels tend to be quite high as well. :)
yes the girl was on a ferris wheel with her seatbelt on. then the girl just went flying off the ferris wheel with her chair and everything. so the girl died.
It's a very simple process, in reality. First you need someone willing to make out with you. Second you need a Ferris Wheel. The next part is where things get tricky. You have to take the person you want to make out with on to the Ferris Wheel. It is precisely at this point that you make ou…t as you would in any other public area (preferably, sparingly and unobtrusively). Have fun, you crazy kids. ( Full Answer )

In 1892 William Somers had three 50 ft. wooden wheels entertaining visitors to Asbury Park, Atlantic City NJ and Coney Island NY. George Ferris Jr rode on one of Somer's "roundabouts" and had his own idea's. The wheel built by George Ferris Jr. for the Chicago Columbian Exposition in 1893 was larger… (264 ft), and more advanced. Large wheels built as early as the 17th century were called "pleasure wheels" or "great wheels" built purely for the joy and thrill of it. Ferris' wheel was originally called the "Chicago wheel".

I have to assume that you are referring to the Rim of the wheelwhere the seats are attached. That being the case, the circularmotion of the wheel's rim creates Centrifugal and Centripetalforces. These forces act against each other along the radius of thewheel, at every point on its circumference. Un…less the wheel rimflies apart, the two forces are exactly in balance. The acceleration is caused because the points on the rim areconstantly changing direction as the wheel rotates. In order for areal object to change its direction of motion, a Force is needed. Remember that Force = Mass x Acceleration. So an Acceleration isneeded to generate the Force to change the direction of any pointon the rotating wheel. That acceleration is felt by the riders ofthe wheel as being lifted off the seat, or pushed into theseat...depending on their position relative to the ground (force ofGravity), and the speed of the Wheel.
