As mentioned in a previous post, I took a ride on a ferris wheel in a theme park found in Johannesburg, South Africa. As we approached the ferris wheel in Gold Reef City, this what we saw from among the trees:
As you can see, the theme of the ride was the soccer world cup (which South Africa had hosted in 2010). Not only did I take pictures of the surrounding scenery from up high, but also tried to capture a part of the ferris wheel itself from my seat.
This is the view I saw opposite to where I was sitting:
I also had a bird’s-eye view of another section of the amusement park, as well as some outlying factories.
And Gold Reef City would not be the same without a well-known piece of equipment used for gold mining:
We all enjoyed our ride in the Ferris Wheel. And the next time we visit the amusement park, I am sure my children will pull us towards it!
Have you been on a ferris wheel? What was your experience like?
