When is a bridge not quite a bridge? When it’s a Ferris wheel, of course. The Tianjin Eye is a 394-foot-tall carnival ride over the Haihe River in northern China. Completed in 2007, the six-lane bridge incorporates 48 passenger capsules, each with a capacity of eight people. One full rotation takes half an hour, creating the perfect diversion for commuters stuck in bridge traffic.
