This is a small wooden wheel consists of passengers chairs suspended from large wooden rings and it is turned by strong men. Two men are continuously rotating the wheel, while other four climbs on the passenger chair and come down to increase the speed of the wheel by pulling any chair down, while hanging on it. They land on the ground and then again climb up the wooden stairs to repeat the action. Passengers are enjoying the ride. I think this happens only in India. There are other Ferris wheels you can enjoy, which runs with electric motor, but this is something different and amazing, so riding on this wheel might be a great experience. The people who are scared of height and the speed of rotating wheel, can enjoy this without any fear, because it is not very high and turns at slow speed.
