Montreal's Giant Ferris Wheel In The Old Port Is Almost Done, Here's Everything You Need To Know

Montreal's Old Port Ferris wheel has been slowly taking shape over the last few months, but now it's nearly complete and it will soon be open to the public. 

But this isn't just a boring old wheel with metal cages, like the Ferris wheels you're used to. It's a luxury observation wheel and a world-class recreational tourist installation.

It also has some pretty cool features you might not know about.

Here's everything you need to know about Montreal's Observation wheel.

The Boring Features:

The wheel measures 60 meters, which is as high as a 20-story building.

The cabins are equipped with both A/C and heating, which means the wheel can be enjoyed all year round.

The Awesome Features:

There will be a bistro, a café, a bar and a terrasse at the base of the wheel, but the cool part is that you can actually take your drinks with you on the wheel. Say hello to you new favorite pre-drink spot. 

The cabins will have a table in the middle so it'll be like having your own private bar booth for you and 7 of your friends. 

There will be special VIP cabins that features leather seats, a champagne fridge and a glass bottom floor! I hope you aren't afraid of heights otherwise you may want to stick to regular cabins.
