Zhengzhou Ferris Wheel is a 120-metre (390 ft) tall giant Ferris wheel at Century Amusement Park in Zhengzhou, Henan, China.[1]

When it was completed in 2003, Zhengzhou Ferris Wheel was the tallest Ferris wheel in China, and the second tallest in the world, after the 135-metre (443 ft) London Eye. There are now four 120 m Ferris wheels in China, the other three being Changsha Ferris Wheel (completed 2004), Suzhou Ferris Wheel (completed 2009), and Tianjin Eye (completed 2008). The only Chinese Ferris wheel with a greater height is the 160-metre (520 ft) Star of Nanchang, which opened in 2006.[2]

There is at least one other giant Ferris wheel in Zhengzhou, at Renmin Park.
