小编摘要:位于中国广东省广州市的世界最高“摩天轮”正式对外开放了。与众不同的是,它不像传统摩天轮可以悬在空中,而是与水平面平行的圆形环道。这座建筑因为其扭转妩媚的外形,还被大家戏称为“小蛮腰”。

导读:世界上最高的“摩天轮”被定于8月31日对外开放,它位于中国一座1,480英尺高塔的顶部,乘客们可以坐进透明的小车厢游览。建于450米高的广州电视塔上方,这个令人惊异的转轮由16个小观光舱组成,可以运载96名勇敢的乘客。

 

The world's “highest” Ferris wheel is set to open for business today on top of a 1,480ft tower in China - with passengers riding in see-through pods.

Built on the 450-meter-high Canton Tower, known as the Guangzhou TV Tower, the amazing wheel consists of 16 pods holding a total of 96 fearless passengers.

Each capsule is just over three meters wide, and built using a special macromolecule material which allows a 360-degree crystal clear view.

Unlike other Ferris wheels, it has a 15-degree incline and can resist 8-magnitude earthquakes and Beaufort scale 12 typhoons.

An elliptical track has been constructed around the edge of the tower's roof, and the 16 transparent “crystal” pods take between 20 and 40 minutes to go round the track.

It's located in Guangzhou, capital of the southwestern Chinese province of Guangdong.

The attraction will cost visitors 130 Yuan each.

Although it's described as a Ferris, its passenger cars are not suspended from the rim of a wheel in the traditional fashion and the track is horizontal.

The tower is also known by its local nickname - Xiao Man's waist - which refers to a famous Geisha who used to entertain people during the reign of the tang Dynasty.

She was appreciated for her slim waist and the tower has a twisted and tight appearance.

In August, Las Vegas announced plans to build the world's “tallest” Ferris wheel, which will be more than 100ft higher than the London Eye.

Caesar's Entertainment, which runs the Caesar's Palace hotel and casino, revealed its wheel will be called the “Las Vegas High Roller” and measure 550ft.

That would pip the Singapore Flyer (541ft) to the title of world's highest wheel.

The London Eye is 443ft tall.
