Is that big wheel safe in high winds?
Don't think there will be many rides on the Ferris Wheel today, Gale Force Winds, Force 8 at speeds ranging from 62 to 74 kilometres per hour forecast for all of Saturday.
Morning everyone. Merry Xmas Frank from a cold and dark Durham (UK), but is currently a balmy 4 degrees. It looks very windy in Malta this morning.
Hello Frank and Merry Christmas to you too !! :)
It also takes over an hour from Qawara bus station to the airport. Good luck with the transfer.
Hi Jon, is that the Riviera in Mellieha? What's the bus situation like on NYD, but even if the airport bus is running, if you haven't used it before be aware it takes absolutely ages. We used it from Sliema to the airport in May and it took at least an hour (luckily we were trying to fill in some time!!).
And now we have a big wheel
Thanks Dave S, Margaret & Ann for your comments. I'll remember to let you know about the view. We're going for 4 nights coming back on NYD. We just have to sort out how to get back from the end of the island (Riviera Hotel) to the airport early afternoon on NYD. Taxi's really expensive. Thanks again
Merry Christmas Folks- from Nova Scotia Canada..Hope the sun comes out and wind and rain stops for your celebrations...It is -6c here. I watch this cam every day..
Jon, hopefully all the rain that has been happening these past couple of weeks will clear up by the time you go so you can enjoy yourselves. Have a great time !
@Jon.....and remember to wave!!
@jon, the info I read says the wheel is 32 M, judging by how the seats are facing, and the rotation, the view will be out toward Floriana, but i can't see if there are both front and rear facing seats. You will have to tell us all after your ride the wheel.
We're in Malta between Christmas and New Year - Have to have a go on the Ferris wheel. I wonder whether its high enough to see over the main buildings? I'm sure it will give an amazing view of the city and surrounding area.
User 739xxx Think you have answered your own question with the last word in your question. The Christmas fair is taking place in Valletta and St Publius' Square (The Graneries) is in Floriana.
I doubt that the granaries would take the weight as there are grain stores under those lids.They get enough abuse at the concerts they hold there.
why did they have to place the ferris wheel in front of the Phoenicia why not by the graineries in Floriana ?
