With the new DW-Series, Dutch Wheels is defining the next level in giant wheels.

The existing Dutch Wheels R-Series giant wheel has been designed and refined over the years to become the best developed and highest quality giant wheel available.

Dutch Wheels giant wheels are operational in well-known tourist locations in the Americas, Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia Pacific. Dutch Wheels is part of the Vekoma Rides group of companies and through Vekoma, it has a history with giant wheels that goes back to the early sixties. In the nineties more than 10 wheels were sold to attraction parks and fairgrounds worldwide. Most of them are still operational like the Navy Pier wheel in Chicago, the Moreys Pier wheel in Wildwood NJ, and the Ocean Park wheel in Hong Kong. Vekoma decided to focus on roller coasters and is currently recognized as a global leader in its field, having delivered roller coasters to well-known players like Disney.

The design started with a larger gondola, now comfortably seating 8-10 guests, offering sufficient space to feel comfortable and enjoy the view through the large windows. The steel construction that was designed around the gondola, is meeting building codes all over the world, and able to deal with extreme conditions with our recent Hong Kong installation as an example. The DW-Series is beyond comparison with its predecessor and other giant wheels available in the market. For its owner, it offers a perfect business opportunity. Dutch Wheels giant wheels have proven to be safe, energy efficient and reliable performers in the world™s premier locations; from Helsinki to Bangkok, from Myrtle Beach to Baku, from Seattle to the heart of Paris, from Brighton Boulevard to Goteborg harbour™ and Cape Town™s waterfront cafe©. The wheel is an ideal centrepiece for any major real estate development or urban entertainment area. The DW-Series is expected to grow with other sizes where the 80 meter version is currently being engineered. The DW60 is offered in a 30 and 42 gondola configuration.

DW-Series product details and features:

Next to a sound and safe design, there are many details that make a Dutch Wheel stand out as the leading brand in giant observation wheels.


 


Unique wheel design

The DW-Series has a unique appearance with its 6 robust legs and spokes that widen at the end. This typical spoke design is to accommodate larger gondolas, yet allows the wheel to be packed in regular containers for efficient transportation. The more robust columns represent a construction that is able to deal with extreme conditions and is built to last a lifetime.

 

Large gondolas

Compared to the R-Series gondola, 50 cm has been added to the length now offering comfortable seating for 8 adults. 30 cm has been added to the width making the gondola offer sufficient space to enter and exit, reduce nuisance of bags and other carry-on items and to enjoy the view in all directions. The gondola comes with a number of options relative to the interior design and equipment. The size also allows to sit in combination with a wheelchair inside the gondola.

 

Gondola Air Conditioning and on-board equipment

A HVAC unit is mounted on the roof of the gondola to ensure a comfortable climate inside the gondola. Optional ambient lighting, an emergency button, 2-way communication and an on-board multimedia system with video capability make the gondola a safe and comfortable place to enjoy the ride.

DW60 installed base

The DW-Series already has an impressive installed base in the 60 meter version with the first one operational in Baku, Azerbaijan in a 30 gondola version since March 2014.
