Navy Pier’s Ferris Wheel

navy pier

Navy Pier’s new 196 foot tall Ferris wheel, now officially named the Centennial Wheel. The new Ferris wheel, which will stand at 50 feet taller than the last one which was installed at Navy Pier in the ’90s, will feature 42 climate controlled gondolas which will be able to hold 14 passengers each. The technology comes from a company called Dutch Wheels that is based out of the Netherlands. However, Chicago’s new Ferris wheel isn’t entirely unique. It’s actually the same model as the Hong Kong Observation Wheel which opened on the densely populated island in 2014. Be sure to visit Navy Pier and Centennial Wheel during your next visit to Chicago.
