Ferris wheel \Fer"ris wheel\
An amusement device consisting of a giant power-driven
vertically oriented steel wheel, revolvable on its horizontal
stationary axle, and carrying a number of balanced passenger
cars or open seats around its rim; the seats are suspended so
as to remain horizontal as the wheel rotates, and, depending
on the size of the wheel, the passengers when they reach the
top may have a grand vista of the surrounding area; -- so
called after G. W. G. Ferris, American engineer, who erected
the first of its kind for the World's Columbian Exposition in
Chicago in 1893.
Note: Ferris wheels are often found at traveling fairs and at
permanent amusement parks. The Reisenrad
