Things the World Needed: Tianjin, China’s Ferris Wheel-in-a-Bridge

Tianjin - Tianjin Eye Ferris Wheel

It’s not quite  Tokyo’s “Big O,” but I’ll give China credit once again for gratuitous randomness.

Located in the city of Tianjin, a quick train ride just south of Beijing, the Tianjin Eye (天津之眼摩天轮) opened in mid-2008.  What makes this Ferris wheel stand out is the fact that it is located in the middle of the Yongle Bridge, close to West Tianjin train station.  Why create a separate amusement park when there’s plenty of space downtown?

They should dedicate an hour everyday for cars to take a spin.
