Ferris Wheel Embedded into Hotel Towers

12/23/2014 11:03 AM

Recently, I heavily involved into such a project. Such an idea is unprecedented:
I want to bring this technology to other part of the world. Anybody interested?

Reminds me of the thrill rides outside the top of the Stratosphere Tower in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"I want to bring this technology to other part of the world. Anybody interested?"

What, exactly, are you looking for?

If you seek financial backing for such a venture, you might contact the individuals holding the varied and numerous confidential design data for the project you have been heavily involved with.

I suspect some of that intellectual property might be protected.

I look at this and wonder: why do the two rings intersect? Seems smarter/safer if there was a gap between them.

Also, why build them in the middle of the towers? A substantial portion of the view is blocked.

And: Are they really ferris wheels, or simply a design of the architect to have the appearance of two ferris-like rings?

I've never seen a figure -8 Ferris Wheel?

  1. Does it revolve?
  2. Is it one or two wheels?
  3. This looks like a roller coaster rather than a Ferris Wheel?

Is it April fools day?

The title of the drawing is "Figure 8 Truss" I have yet to see anything that says "Ferris Wheel"?????

Why don't you get it perfected in your part of the world first.

What are the riders going to look at other than blank walls?

Tornado!! Exactly!! A Ferris wheel is like an observation platform, look at the sights like the Linq here in Vegas. I did a search and the OP actually just posted the same pictures to a picture sharing sight too.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all

I think you need to explain far more to gather any interest?
e.g.
Are the wheels replacement external elevators?

Are there hidden usp benefits? (to explain the costs)

Are there concerns about blocking the view from windows?

Are there concerns about room privacy?

Are there any planning restrictions?

What is the involvement, and the scope required?

I think lots more info. is required to generate genuine interest?

jt.

And God said, "Come forth...." but I came fifth and won nothing.

Women are Angels...
And when someone breaks our wings, we simply continue to fly...
usually on a broomstick. We're flexible like that.

Finally, I would just like to say a big thank you to all those wonderful
young people who stand on motorway slip roads, and in all weathers,
holding up boards telling us motorists where the road goes to.

Ferris trolls hold the stages in place.
