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.
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.
