The giant wheel THE VIEW 2 is currently under construction and is a prototype of the manufacturer SAD Maschinenbau from Dinslaken (Germany). It impresses with an innovative construction and the very compact dimensions with a total height of an impressive 50 meters.
THE VIEW 2 stands on 6 supports and is thus less efficient with 2 supports than a conventional giant wheel construction. This reduces the space required behind the Ferris wheel, while the front section benefits from an enlarged station.
A total of 36 gondolas with a standing height of over 2 meters can accommodate up to 216 passengers. The dome-shaped glazing of the gondolas offers an undisturbed panoramic view over the rooftops of the city.
One of the visual highlights of THE VIEW 2 is the sun designed as an LED video wall (wheel hub). At a diameter of 5.5 meters, photos, videos and animations are displayed with approx. 2.8 million pixels.
The View 2 is loaded onto standard semi-trailers, enabling easy transport by truck and boat.
