Build a Playground Ferris Wheel Plans
These are plans for a playground or back yard Ferris wheel.
Dubbed a "Squarris Wheel" by its designer
because of its square wheel, this pint-sized backyard
version of its big brother, the Ferris wheel,
will bring safe carnival fun right to your own
Braced to make it as sturdy as possible, the
wheel is designed to operate on "kid power."
That is, each time around, each passenger gives
the wheel a backward push with his feet.
The plan's designer says there is no danger of traveling too fast for safety, and
no danger of falling out of the bucket seats, since
the small riders are held in by a safety bar.
Another safety feature is a set of wheel locks,
which prevent the toy from being used when
mom or dad can't be around to supervise getting
on and getting off.
