Place de la Concorde Ferris Wheel to stay up most of 2016

Jump to last reply

The "Grande Roue" at Place de la Concorde will be in place from 6 November 2015 until 23 September 2016 instead of being dismantled in mid-February. It will also be bigger than before with a height of 65 meters instead of 57 meters (note that this is nothing compared to the London Eye which is 135 meters tall). The new wheel will have 48 capsules instead of 42.

The reason for the extended period in 2016 is because France is hosting the European football (soccer) championship next year, and the Grande Roue will be used to advertise it. Each capsule will be decorated with the faces of the major European football stars.
