  1. I don't mind going on a small Ferris Wheel but big ones scare the crapola out of me. For example, in the UK I did NOT go on the London Eye.

  2. Having never looked up the history of the Ferris wheel I for some reason thought it was the construct of a Frenchman. They are pretty to watch at night when you can really see the light show they produce.

  3. The real big ones are fun but sometimes super duper scary for me as well.
