Up and Down and ‘Round and ‘Round
The 18 93 World’s Columbian Exposition featured an exciting new ride, invented by George Washington Gale Ferris Jr! Yep, he created the first Ferris Wheel! Jake “Paco” Navarro set a world record, by riding one for 53 hours straight. The tallest Ferris wheel ever is being built in Dubai. It’ll be 689 feet high! Happy Ferris Wheel Day!
