The gambling mecca of Las Vegas is to construct a ferris wheel larger than the London Eye. The new wheel will be constructed at the south end of the strip next to the Mandalay Bay resort and will be built on a 38-acre site with amusement rides and a retail complex.
Unlike most things it Las Vegas, it will not be the largest ferris wheel in the world with larger structures in Singapore and China.
The ferris wheel will be built on a former 1950's hotel and is planned to open in 2013 and the wheel will have 40 gondolas holding up to 25 passengers.
