DEVELOPER REVEALS
STRIKING NEW IMAGES AND
DETAILS OF £100M PLAN TO
BUILD EUROPE’S TALLEST
OBSERVATION WHEEL ON
NEWCASTLE QUAYSIDE
Developer World Wheel Company, which is planning to build Europe’s
tallest observation wheel on Newcastle Quayside, has revealed striking
new images and further details of the proposed project.
Standing nearly 460 ft (140 m) high,
the giant observation wheel – dubbed
‘The Whey Aye’ in celebration of its
location – will be 16 ft (5 m) taller than
the London Eye. It is anticipated that the
project will see around £100m invested in
the city and up to 550 jobs created.
The computer-generated images show
elevations of The Whey Aye and the rest
of the ‘Giants on the Quayside’
development, including The Geordie
Giant, a 39 ft (12 m) tall steel structure,
and a new destination food and beverage
experience for Newcastle called The
Giant’s Quay.
In addition, the development will
feature a family entertainment centre
lled with trampolines, climbing walls, a
skywalk and separate café. The ‘Giant
Sport Deck’ will comprise a multipurpose play and sports complex, with
covered ve-a-side pitches and tennis
courts available for public hire, as well as
a state-of-the-art virtual golf club called
The Quayside Golf Club. Its clubhouse
bar will oer food and beverages before
golfers can play some of the world’s most
famous courses in private, best-in-class
simulator experiences.
