Some interesting and unique news recently surfaced that Phuket could be on their way to having the largest Ferris wheel in the world! Interesting, right? There are plans in the works to construct a state-of-the-art theme and amusement park in Phuket, with the largest Ferris wheel in the world being the centerpiece of the park.
There has been a consortium of businessmen who have applied for permission to the Phuket Provincial Land Office to construct the hi-tech amusement park. The plan is to construct the park over a 30-40 rai area, showcasing some of the largest scale amusement rides in the world, but that’s not the best part!
As part of the plans, the consortium wants to construct the largest Ferris wheel in the world, the title of which is currently held by the Las Vegas ‘High Roller’ at 168 meters tall. The group stated that the wheel will only take 18 months to build
This mega project will take Phuket tourism to another level, while at the same time attracting more investors from Europe, and especially the United Kingdom.
A recent press release about the park and wheel said, “It will be a landmark project, enhancing tourism to the province, and heralding a new era of choice for those wanting to see more on their holiday than the island’s many natural wonders.”
It all sounds amazing and is a real shot out of the blue. Let’s hope this goes through, because more tourism is just what the island’s businesses need.
