Moment Strong Winds Blow Ferris Wheel Booths Around With People Inside

This is the scary moment strong winds blow the pods on a Ferris Wheel around with frightened people inside.

The incident took place in the town of Zelenogradsk, which is located in the Kaliningrad Oblast region in western Russia, on the Baltic coast.

The Baltic Eye Ferris Wheel is installed on an embankment in the city and it turned into an extreme attraction when strong winds blew the pods back and forth, wildly rocking the people inside around.

The incident reportedly terrified the people on the Ferris Wheel, as well as witnesses on the ground watching the scary scene unfold.

Numerous videos of the incident were shared online by witnesses before being reported by local media. In one piece of footage, two women can be seen being shaken by the wind while inside one of the pods.

One of the women appears to be laughing but her friend appears to be scared.

Some netizens said that the attraction combined three forms of entertainment: a Ferris Wheel, a swing, and a scary fairground ride.

No injuries were reported in the incident. It is unclear if the police are investigating the Ferris Wheel operator and why rides were not suspended during the bad weather.

The Kaliningrad Oblast region is an enclave that is geographically separate from the rest of Russia. The region’s largest city is Kaliningrad, which was once known as the Prussian city of Koenigsberg, and Zelenogradsk was once known by its German name, Cranz.
