What stage are all the new or old Ferris ( Observation ) Wheels at?

With so many Observation Wheels announced as proposed or underconstruction around the world I thought I would start with a pic of Melbourne's. This is how it stands today...the seven arms of the star refer to the Seven States and Territories of Australia....as with all the wheels they are supposed to be a tourism draw? This one will be 120m when finished....didn't aim for the biggest....someone will always come along and build bigger...PS....looked for an existing thread?? but only see list after doing this one...Sorry

I'm not sure what is causing the craze for Ferris Wheels... I like them in an Amusement Park, but not part of the downtown skyline. I find them a bit on the tacky side...
