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. (:

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...

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 --
