Description:
According to Wikipedia, a Ferris wheel is a nonbuilding structure consisting of an upright wheel with passenger gondolas suspended from the rim.

Ferris wheels are an amusement park ride and may also be found at urban parks and public places. Ferris wheels usually hold about 50-100 people.

Expanded Description:
The first ferris wheel was designed by George W. Ferris, a bridge-builder from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

He built the Ferris Wheel for the 1893 World's Fair, which was held in Chicago to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Columbus's landing in America. It cost $380,000.00 to make and stood at 264 feet. The diameter of the wheel was 250 feet, making it the largest known wheel in American at the time.
