Tallinn gets a new Ferris wheel

The Estonian capital, Tallinn, has a new Ferris wheel – one opened on the top of a new shopping mall on 11 April.

The Ferris wheel is located on the top of the T1 Mall near the airport. It will take visitors to the height of 120 metres (394 feet) above the sea level, but this is not the height of the actual wheel as it’s positioned on the roof of the mall.

A standard gondola of the Ferris wheel accommodates up to six people and provides wheelchair access. All gondolas are fitted with thermal insulation to protect from the cold weather and with air conditioning for hot summer days. A standard ride on the observation wheel lasts for 12 minutes.

The ticket to the Ferris wheel will set visitors back €10; a family ticket for parents with children costs €28.

The Ferris wheel with 27 gondolas is open every day from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM.
