The earliest by American George Ferris wheel method and the (George Washington Ferris) for Chicago in 1893 Columbus commemorative exhibition design, and Paris in the 1889 expo was purpose built the Eiffel Tower. The first ferris wheel weighed 2,200 tons and was capable of carrying 2,160 people at a height of 26 stories. Thanks to the success of the pharisees, the facility is now known as the Ferris Wheel, the familiar Ferris Wheel.

The Vienna ferris wheel is a surviving 19th century ferris wheel that is still in operation today. It was built in 1897 at the Platte amusement park in the city of Leopold (second district) in Vienna, Austria, for the golden jubilee of emperor Franz Joseph I, with a total height of 64.75 metres. In 1920, when the Paris ferris wheel was dismantled, the Vienna ferris wheel became the highest ferris wheel in the world. Burned down during world war ii in 1944 and rebuilt the following year, it remained the world's tallest ferris wheel until it was surpassed (85 metres) by the Japanese city of tsukuba in 1985.

Once was the world's most good huge ferris wheel throne for a period of time, is located in the Thames BA London Eye (BA London Eye), is a distance to total up to 135 meters of the ferris wheel, is also the pioneer of the observation wheel the design of this type. However, the world first position in the People's Republic of China, nanchang nanchang star completed and after being broken, which opened in March 2006, the star of nanchang is a total height of 160 meters of gravity type wheel.

Nanchang star world first position, however, also maintain soon, because in March 2008 for the opening of the Singapore Flyer (Singapore Flyer) with its total 165 meters high (150 meters) wheel diameter smaller than the star of nanchang and won the first position in the world, but due to the concept of the structure of the different (Singapore ferris LunCai the same as the London eye observation wheel design), nanchang star ferris wheel of gravity can still maintain the highest status, until there is a new challenger to appear. In addition to the ferris wheel, there are several preparations for the world as a big wheel in the construction, which will challenge the world title in succession, including in the fourth quarter of 2009 is expected to enable the Beijing great wheel, the estimated total height of 208 meters, 198 meters of the ferris wheel, wheel diameter is and the London eye of view is same type wheel structure.

In terms of the diameter of ferris wheel, the largest ferris wheel in Taiwan is the ferris wheel in jianhu mountain world, guhang township, yunlin county, with a diameter of 88 meters.
