Riding high up in the sky
Watching “little” people strolling by
In tad acrophobia
We watched in silent awe
Inside the Manchester Big Wheel
What a nervy ride!
During summer in 2013, my husband and I with our then 4yr old son went for a ride on the Manchester Big Wheel in Piccadilly Gardens. It was really fun as that was my first time so high up. I manned up courage during the ride but realised I didn’t need it- I wasn’t scared. It was lovely looking down into Piccadilly Gardens/Market street from a different view. My son loved the ride as well and was not scared at all, as for my husband that was a different story altogether.
In 2014, we went to Blackpool Pier and went on the Big Wheel. I felt very confident with myself as asual but…Oh boy!!! That was way high, higher than the one in Manchester (I think), and I was very scared! I wasn’t screaming but I wasn’t taking pictures. And when I’m not taking pictures, then something is wrong. You can imagine my relief when my two feet touched the ground. We truly had a wonderful family in Blackpool, but I don’t think I would be willing to go on their Big Wheel again.
