Introducing SkyView™, one of the latest innovations from USTR. A design more beautiful, stronger, lighter, and cost effective than its predecessors. It's the Ferris Wheel reinvented.
SkyView™ is unique in that the structure itself does not turn. Instead the gondolas move around it on a chain-type mechanism. The SkyView weighs around half of what rotating wheels do and is designed to withstand hurricane force winds and seismic loads. Heights range between 200’ to 1000’ feet (61m- 305m), while requiring less ground space than the older giant wheel designs. The industry’s only emergency access pod “escape system”, incorporated within the design of the SkyView, meets industry requirements with regard to passenger safety.
Passengers will travel in comfort aboard stylish gondolas with a capacity of 6-20 people. All gondolas are climate controlled and equipped with a state-of-the-art multimedia center for guided sightseeing, as well as other interactive marketing opportunities.
Our gondolas are custom designed to meet the customers required specifications, and are built using advanced manufacturing techniques. The state-of-the-art design incorporates comfort, safety and ergonomic requirements while additionally focusing on low cost environmental operation and maintenance.
The gondola's design strategically places all systems in one convenient location for ease of access and control. Our priority in the design process of the gondola places tremendous emphasis on safety without compromise. The resulting design also allows for ease of maintenance, thereby reducing operational costs.
