Ferris wheel with views over Southend beach...

Adventure Island's Big Wheel towers over 50ft in the air above Southend sea front.
The classic ferris wheel attraction features eight pods which each seat around four or five passengers. While the colour scheme of the pods themselves has changed over the years, the main wheel structure has remained painted white.
From the top, the Big Wheel provides some great views over Southend Pier and out to sea. On clear days it is even possible to see across to the Kent Coast opposite.
