Ferris wheel construction begins at Shimao Dream City

Construction of a Ferris wheel has started at Shanghai Shimao Dream City in suburban Songjiang District. The trial operation is scheduled to be launched in December and by then tourists will be able to overlook the region’s hill scenery at a height of nearly 50 meters.

Located inside the Wonderland Area of the dream city, the Ferris wheel, when completed, will be 48 meters’ high and have 26 ordinary four-seat landscape cars and 4 VIP cars with a glassy bottom. A tourist will spend 11 minutes in one circle.

In addition, the tourist site has prepared a series of activities for the upcoming October 1-7 National Day holidays. An aerospace-themed activity will be held until October 8, with flower parades and drama performances to offer parents and kids a new tourist experience.
