Well, it may seem that way. But in all fairness, you can't really get an observation wheel looking any different.

London Eye wasn't an original concept. Riesenrad, the giant observation wheel at Vienna was built in 1897. London Eye came 102 years later.

At least we can say this is the first observation wheel that is set in the midst of tall skyscrapers.

The London Eye I think still has the edge. Where else can you have an observation wheel hung over water and connected to the ground on one side only?

The spindle was shipped here and delivered to the site from the port by a 120 wheeler transporter. The spindle is 25m long and 2.6m in diameter.
