The long-awaited Ferris wheel is now open! Promotional ticket prices will last until December 19th. The Rio Star Ferris wheel is the largest in Latin America, 88 meters high, and the full ride will last 15 minutes. Visitors are accommodated in 54 gondolas [cabins] capable of holding up to eight passengers each, and rides be held from 10 AM to 6 PM, with the possibility of extended hours during the high season.
“I strongly believe that Rio de Janeiro residents will welcome the Ferris wheel, who will want to come and experience the views at a height of 88 meters,” said Fabio Bordini, executive director of FW Investimentos, the holding company that manages Rio Star.
