Chicago impressed visitors to the 1893 World's Columbian Exhibition with the first-ever observation wheel, named for the inventor, George Washington Gale Ferris, Jr. View images of that massive first wheel, and admire examples of variations from around the globe. Then conclude with information about Chicago's newest wheel scheduled to open at Navy Pier in summer 2016.
