Ferris wheels scare me...I can't explain it really. I'll be fine on MF or Nitro, but I get scared on Ferris Wheels. I would be petrified on the 500 foot one, since I was scared on the Wonder Wheel! :)

If/When you make one, I hope it looks safe. That's what scares me the most about old ferris wheels, the idea that they could break.

Me too! They are real scary because it feels like the metal holding you up is thin and can break instantly! and he seats they don't feel right!

Once the wheels get crazy big, ie. 500ft they become safer than smaller ones. They have enclosed capsules with airline like safety inside the cabins. You dont feel as exposed or vulnerable, the giant wheel Im referrin to is the biggest in the world, the London eye.
