These bits of white metal may not look like that much at present but in a few months time they will be put together to make the biggest seafront attraction on the South Coast.
The WOW, or Worthing Observation Wheel, is currently being manufactured in Holland ahead of its shipping across the Channel shortly. Here the main towers, base, axle, spokes and gondola frames lie ready to be assembled on our seafront to make a fantastic ride for an expected tens of thousands of people.
The WOW is to be built in the area the area between The Beacon and the Beach Office at the bottom of Montague Place.
At a height of 46 metres, the equivalent of nine double decker buses, the WOW will give unparalleled views of the town, Downs and the Channel. There will be a total of 36 pods with a capacity of 6 people each. A temporary base will be built on the beach to support the ride.
The company, deKoning Leisure Ltd, which ran the successful Steyne Gardens wheel last year, is building the wheel and will operate the attraction which it is hoped will be ready in July.
