Turkmenistan builds largest indoor Ferris wheel


The largest Ferris wheel in an enclosed architectural design was presented last month in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan.

The Ferris wheel measured 47.60 metres (156 ft 2 in) high and with a diameter of 57 metres.

A large glass and white-steel casing houses the Ferris wheel, which has 24 six-seat cabins for the ferris wheel. 

The structure also houses the Alem entertainment center, which includes a bowling alley, cinema screens, a restaurant, and a planetarium.

Created by the Turkmenistan government, the structure cost approximately $90 million (£57 million) to build and was opened on Turkmenistan's Day of Revival, Unity and Magtymguly Poetry.
