This is wheel-ie amazing! The Sunshine Coast is once again being totally spoilt with SkyLine Attractions bringing their portable roaming Ferris wheel back, and just in time for the winter school holidays too. The giant SkyLine wheel will be located at one of the most iconic spots in Caloundra - Bulcock Beach on the Esplanade.
Local Sunny Coasters, day-trippers and holidaymakers have the opportunity to experience life from a-high, when Australia's wheel-ie high Ferris wheel, kicks into action on Thursday, 27 May. This giant thirty-five metre high SkyLine wheel will offer brave, fun-loving adventurers sweeping views right across the Sunshine Coast's hinterland mountains; towards distant shores over the winter-perfect azure seas and sneaky peaks into bustling little coastal resort towns - and all from the super comfiness of a pod, high above the ground.
The SkyLine Ferris wheel boasts twenty-four gondolas or pods, which can seat up to one hundred and forty-four people, including an accessible gondola. With every ride lasting between six and eight minutes, Ferris wheel adventurers will experience breathtaking 360-degree views over panoramic landscapes, capturing and creating real-time lifelong memories.
Day or night the SkyLine Ferris wheel in Caloundra promises a heap load of fun and laughter! Why not organise that special date or marriage proposal (winter is the perfect time for some snuggling) or … take the opportunity to boost your Instagram game - the amazing SkyLine Ferris wheel boasts more than nine thousand lights, lighting up both sides of the wheel spokes, the rim of the wheel and the gondolas - guaranteeing some enviable photography.
