If you noticed a ferris wheel being constructed at Robson Square this week, good news – you can finally ride it!

Variety – the Children’s Charity is wrapping up the end of Variety Week by opening a 60 ft. ferris wheel to the public.

The ride will accessible today at 12:00 p.m through 7:00 p.m. It’s important to note that the ride will only be accessible for one day only, so you’ll have to act fast.


To enjoy the sky high panoramic views of the city, organizers are requesting a minimum donation of $5 per ride. Proceeds will go towards helping BC kids with special needs.

The event will also boast a concession stand with hot chocolate, popcorn and other snacks.
Last year’s Variety Week campaign helped raise $835,000 for our province’s most vulnerable children.
