It is as high as 35 meters and weighs an incredible 90 tons. Sky View has 24 closed cabins that can seat 6 people and has a total capacity of 144 people. The largest panoramic wheel in Osijek and Croatia arrived from Turkey as a great attraction of Advent in Osijek, reports HrTurizam.
Sky View was produced in Turkey, from where it was delivered to Osijek and had its premiere in the Slavonian metropolis. It attracted a large number of guests to Advent in Osijek because riding in a panoramic wheel of this size is a unique and certainly unforgettable experience.
Such tourist attractions are a lure for visitors and were quickly praised by the leaders of Osijek and Osijek County, who eagerly waited for the wheel and daily monitored the installation so that Osijek would have the largest panoramic wheel as part of its event.
Today, panoramic wheels have become an indispensable attraction of major tourist destinations, and in the largest European cities, they are set as permanent tourist content. This Croatian panoramic wheel is mobile, which makes it attractive for filling the contents of our tourist destinations.
This is the entrepreneurial story of the Vinkovci-based company Contigo, backed by Vedran Jukić, who ordered the panoramic wheel at the end of 2019. “I visited several factories, but in Turkey, I came across the most corporate team that somehow gained my trust because they have many years of experience in making amusement park equipment. I participated in every step of making wheels and often stayed in Turkey. The pandemic caused big problems for production, and the wheel only arrived in Croatia this December,” says Vedran Jukić, who owns one of the largest amusement parks in Croatia.
It takes a maximum of one week to mount a panoramic wheel of this size, and the surface on which the wheel is placed should be 20 by 15 meters. “The idea of purchasing a mobile panoramic wheel has been in my plan for a long time and I saw great potential in it because I have been in the amusement park segment for years, and the fact that I already have a number of inquiries for this season from our sea destinations they see an opportunity to strengthen tourist facilities by setting up such a large panoramic wheel”, adds Jukić.
According to this entrepreneur, the interest is great and we expect that the panoramic wheel Sky View will be a tourist attraction of our sea destinations that stick to themselves and strengthen their tourist offer.
The Sky View panoramic wheel ride in Osijek every working day from 10 am to 11 pm, except on New Year’s Eve when it will be open from 10 am to 9 pm. for children up to 12 years the price of the ride is 40 kuna, and the youngest up to three years can ride for free.
