Dubai officially opened the world's largest and tallest ferris wheel on Thursday, as part of an initiative to bolster the city's status as a major tourism hub. It's known as the "Dubai Eye" and stands at 250m.

I'd go for it if it wasn't in one of the most hostile climates on the planet.  Oh yeah, and it gets REALLY HOT there too ;)

they are going for records,  tallest building in the world, the only indoor ski mountains, highest number of car crashes per car with no alcohol involved, and now this.

We can ballpark 250 meters at 750 feet.  Military parachute gums for training are normally done at 1250 feet.  This ferris wheel is high enough to easily qualify for making a combat jump.

I’ll skip the ride being a former paratrooper.  If something breaks you could really be jammed up.
