World's Coolest Ferris Wheels

Wonder Wheel, Brooklyn, NY

Thrill-seekers have lined up every summer since 1920 for their turn to climb inside one of the 24 rocking carriages of this Coney Island landmark. In an eccentric twist, some of the carriages slide toward the center axel and then back to the rim as the wheel turns. It’s one of four old-timey rides at Dino’s Wonder Wheel Amusement Park; West Coasters can find a smaller replica of the wheel at Disneyland’s California Adventure Park. wonderwheel.com
