Ferris Wheel History

The original ferris wheel was in invented by George Washington Gale Ferris Jr in 1893 for the Chicago World’s Columbian Exposition.

Intended as an attraction in the same manner as the 1889 Paris Exposition’s 324-metre (1,063 ft) Eiffel Tower. The Ferris Wheel was the Columbian Exposition’s tallest attraction, with a height of 80.4 metres (264 ft).

The Ferris Wheel was dismantled then rebuilt in Lincoln Park, Chicago, in 1895, and dismantled and rebuilt a third and final time for the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis, Missouri, where it was ultimately demolished in 1906.

Their specific production for travelling the fairs did not start until the mid-twentieth century with modest machines containing 16 cars, which were eventually scaled down to more portable 12 car versions.
