The Star of Nanchang
(english / chinese / pinyin)
Currently the third tallest Ferris wheel in the world, the Star of Nanchang stands at 160 metres tall. When it opened in 2006 it was the world’s tallest until 2008 when the Singapore flyer took the top spot. In 2014 the High Roller in Las Vegas beat the Singapore Flyer pushing the Star of Nanchang in to third place. Nevertheless it remains an impressive sight, especially at night when it is lit up by thousands of LED lights.
Offering amazing views of the city, the Star of Nanchang has 60 enclosed air-conditioned gondolas (each gondola representing one minute), each of which can carry up to 8 passengers. It takes approximately 30 minutes to complete one rotation and passengers can embark and disembark without the wheel having to stop turning. For nervous passengers each gondola is equipped with a fire extinguisher, intercom and a lifeline barrel for safety.
