Big Wheel Marseille, Marseille

3.2
Grande Roue de Marseille is a 55-meter tall Ferris wheel in Marseille, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. It is the second tallest Ferris wheel in France and has 42 gondola cabins. It opened to the public in 2009 and has moved multiple times between two locations of Vieux-Port (Old Port) and Escale Borély.
A 10 year-old girl was injured and suffered a broken jaw and bruises to her ear on August 19, 2019, when she allegedly stuck her head out of cabin. The operator claimed it was a disregard for safety by the occupant, not a mechanical malfunction.

  • Don't go there. Somebody lost its phone in front of the Big Wheel so we tried to deposit the phone at the cashier of the Big Wheel. Since it was probable that a customer of the Big Wheel has lost its phone, we assumed they would be willing to help. But they didn't care at all. So if you are planning on going there, reconsider to spend your money with these people.
  • The big weel is not in the area any more Thanks Google for being tired for nothing!
