Standing 100 feet (30 m) above the Pacific Ocean, the Pacific Wheel’s new 174,000 LED lights are mounted on the Ferris wheel’s structure including the 40 spokes and two hubs. The world’s only solar- powered Ferris wheel’s new lighting system features 16.7 million colour value combinations while the new programming and display software upgrades increase imaging to 24 frames per second to display dynamic, custom, computer-generated lighting entertainment. The eco- friendly, enhanced LED lighting provides 81 per cent greater energy savings than most Ferris wheel’s traditional incandescent bulbs.
