Water slides are best when they take you on a long meandering ride through curves and hills, but not every amusement park has room for a big installation. That’s why a German company has combined water slides with Ferris wheels to create this dizzying attraction that will have riders wondering which way is up.
If Las Vegas has taught us anything, it’s that you can’t open a new casino without some kind of gimmick. Be it a fancy exclusive restaurant, an amazing waterworks show, or the world’s first ferris wheel shaped like a figure-8 that also happens to be perched 430 feet above the city of Cotai in Macau.
Rickety, slow, and mind-numbingly dull, Ferris wheels are the black sheep of state fairs. Not the Singapore Flyer—this engineering marvel lifts visitors high enough to spot neighboring countries.
