Random Question, but i can't seem to find an exact answer.

What is the exact height in a trailer-mounted Chance Giant Wheel? Namely, a 1989/1990 Model.

Thanks, ya'll. (:

21 yards 2 feet and 2 7/32 inches @ sea level or did you want that in metric?

So is that like 65 feet, or so? That doesn't seem right... Because Belle City says their wheel is 100' feet and a google search says 90' feet....

The Century Wheels are 66ft give or take -- the Giant Wheels are right around 90 or just under...

According to Chance specs, 27 meters, or roughly 88 feet tall.

See, these are kind of posts that drive people away! Why do you even come on here if you have nothing productive to add?

I agree. Brings to mind the saying "no one likes a smart a$$".

He's actually pretty close on the money there for a Century Wheel measurements -- That totals out to just over 65 feet which is on the money -- she was just looking for the Giant Wheel --
