NEVER BUILT-Abu Dhabi: VOYAGER WHEEL (World's Largest Ferris Wheel)

ABU DHABI to build the world's largest ferris Wheel , 600 feet high ,

there was a picture of it on the front page of the business section of the bayan paper this morning,

so if anyone can scan it (i am too lazy) or look it up, its a very cool design

cool
600ft that's incredibly tall for a wheel

i'm not sure but there also is one of these huge wheels in london, it's likely to be the world's tallest for now

I replied in the world forums. It's good it's in Abu Dhabi and not Dubai to balance things out, or atleast everythin isn't in Dubai .
