Bamboo Ferris Wheel in the Philippines

Do you enjoy riding a Ferris wheel? It's fun right? Well, check this out. A Ferris Wheel made from bamboos! Watch the video below and see for yourself.



Would you dare ride that? Those riding the bamboo ride seems to be enjoying it. The downsides of this ride is that people need to manually spin it and that it could be noisy as the friction of the bamboo will scratch against each other that causes a screeching sound. But those little things won't stop us from riding it right?

This video went viral on Facebook and I want to share it here. All credit goes to the one who captured or recorded it. I don't know who since many users re-uploaded it and shared without giving credits to the original uploader. Sigh.

I was about to say that the Filipinos made or invented this but it seems like people from Sweden could have made it first during their 21st World Scout Jamboree. Here is a picture of a A Ferris wheel built by the Swedish contingent.
