Did You Know Coachella’s Beautiful Ferris Wheel…

by Kat Ballard

That beautiful Ferris wheel at Coachella (Le Grande Wheel) is the world’s largest transportable Ferris wheel, only second in size to the London Eye and Le Grande Roue de Paris; both are so big they remain stationary.

After spending 20 years as a ticket taker at carnivals, Ron Bussink, 43, envisioned this fabulous wheel. The ingenious Swiss designer is now president and chief executive officer of  Nauta Brussink, Inc. which manufactured the wheel.

It took three years to build and requires more electrical power than all other rides at most fairs.

The Coachella skyline would not be the same without it, the views from the top of the wheel are spectacular.
