The Changsha Ferris Wheel is built on top of an enormous roof. The apex of the Ferris wheel is approximately 120 meters above the ground. From atop the Ferris wheel, one can see Changsha University, the Window of the World theme park, and the Xingsha Economic Development Zone to the east. Looking south, one will have a view of Nanjiao Park, while Mountain Yuelu will be visible to the west. Looking to the north, one can have a view of the Kaifu government office. At night, the Ferris wheel will be illuminated by colorful lights installed in the center and the outer ring of the wheel, which change colors as the wheel rotates.
