Description This is a ride I started back in 2015. Projects like this sit for years collecting dust in boxes, sort of packed in segments. I pulled it out and fixed some of the problems it had, supports and wheels. It's a double ferris wheel inspired by a ride of the same name by Chance Rides, the older brother of the zipper.

This particular model was inspired by a K'Nex model by Greg Nuse. It uses micro chains to drive the two wheels. A basic fixed axle setup turns the wheels when the boom is turned. It's a really basic model, but it looks great.
