If you’re trying to put together a great theme park, there are a few things you need to figure out. The theme rides are a big one, for instance. Does your theme park have the sort of theme that would allow a log ride? What about some kind of boat swing? Those are things that must be considered.
Once you figure out the theme rides, however, then you have to figure out the more generic rides. Every theme park needs its share of roller coasters, teacup style rides, and bumper cars. Yet one of the most popular rides, one of the rides that no theme park can do without, is the ferris wheel. Every person who goes to a theme park, an amusement park, or a carnival is going to want to ride on a ferris wheel. The very idea of being able to sit in a spot with a friend or loved one and see the surrounding area is the sort of thing that causes many people to go out of their way to make the trip.
When you’re planning on the ferris wheel, there’s a very important question you need to ask yourself. Will you get a big ferris wheel, or a smaller ferris wheel? There are certainly benefits to a smaller ferris wheel. They cost less money to maintain, they’re easier to carry around, and they require less people to set up and tear down. Due to those facts alone, many people make the decision to get a smaller ferris wheel. When one considers that they’re generally less expensive to buy in the first place, some might question why you would ever get a big ferris wheel.
However, there are several very good reasons to getting a big ferris wheel. If you’re running a theme park, then chances are you’re not going to be doing a lot of tearing down and setting up. Nor will you need to take your rides across the state. Because of that, the fact that a smaller ferris wheel is easier to set up, tear down, and carry around doesn’t really factor into the situation.
Once you realize that, then you begin to realize that a big ferris wheel is a huge tourist attraction. People will go quite a bit out of their way to be able to ride in a big ferris wheel. The idea of being able to swing hundreds of feet up into the air is something that excites many people. There’s just nothing quite like being suspended hundreds of feet up, feeling the rush of adrenaline as the wind passes by your face, seeing the beautiful countryside and the rest of the park.
So if you’re looking for a great attraction for your theme park, then look no further than a big ferris wheel. After all, you’re not running a carnival. You’re running a theme park. And what’s a theme park without fantastic attractions that draw people in from all over the state?
