SkyView de Pier is a 45-meter tall Ferris wheel in Scheveningen, The Hague. It was the first Ferris wheel constructed over sea in Europe[1], as it is on the Scheveningen Pier eight meters above the North Sea.[2] It opened to the public on August 19, 2016.[3]

Design[edit]

The Netherlands-based Dutch Wheels designed and constructed the wheel. It is a model R50SP-36.[4] It has 36 climate controlled gondolas that can accommodate 6 people each.[3] A dining car can be reserved for dinner or high tea.[5] A VIP gondola features a glass floor.[6]
