I was reading the latest addition of Amusement Today, and there was an article on Mondial rides. They announced they have a new Giant Wheel like the Ray Cammack wheel except larger. 60 meters (180') 42 tubs on 8 trailers and can be set up and torn down without a crane in one day.

Monde Festiv - Mr. Campion and Mr. Vatonne are the proud owners of the latest Mondial Giant wheel called “Roue de Paris “. This breath taking wheel with an impressive height of 60 meters and with its 42 gondola’s, gives the passangers a spectacular view into the world. The “Roue de Paris “ is another Giant Wheel featuring the Mondial Compact System (MCS) design-format. This means that the wheel’s foundation consists of the same 3 trailers that it is transported on. During set-up of the wheel the trailers are integrated forming the base for the masts.

The main benefits of this way of constructing are the following:

•The wheel and all its equipment are transported on a total of only 8 trailers.
•Very short set-up and dismantling time
•No mobile cranes needed at all.
•Small ground surface needed (21 x 19 m).
•Much power saved by using LED lighting.
•Enclosed gondolas.
•Easy to operate (automatic operation program).
The “Roue de Paris” can be admired on different locations in and around Paris year round. (Jardin des Tuileries until the 20th of August 2010, Place de la Concorde, end of November 2010)

EIGHT trailers?! guess this is just for very very special occasions! just for speculation...... what kind of route here in the states could be profitable for a monster like that?

What do they mean by very short set-up and dismantal time? Very short in my mind is 15-20 minutes but I doubt they mean that.
It is what you learn, after you know it all, that counts.

One day. Keep in mind it takes RCS several days and a crane to set theirs up, which is slightly smaller.

Scott, thanks for posting. Fantastic piece. Below is a photo from their web site.

It didn't say it took 7 days. It said it took 8 trailers to move and can go up or down in 1 day. ( according to the story in AT)

Scott He might be using that "new math". 8 trailers minus 1 day equals 7 days.[;)][:D][}:)]

This really sounds strange, but that wheel is on the front page full color of todays news paper... Weird!

Looks awesome! But what are the chances that an American show gets one?
