Remember back in 1995, every Friday night served up another helping of PK Tonight, with Patrick Kielty's close-to-the-knuckle jokes, guests and bands. Spinning the Big Rickety Wheel was a constant segment throughout the series.
It'll take fifteen minutes to complete a revolution. One of the capsules is black and marked VIP ... not sure what advantage it offers. But it'll surely become a lunchtime treat - depending on the cost (the wheel is supposed to be self-financing over the few months it remains in Belfast).
A bit like the St Anne's Cathedral spire, the wheel pops up in all kinds of views across Belfast: appearing between city centre buildings, peeping above the rooftops as you drive across the Albert Bridge and up past Central Station.
Update: on-board on a rainy Saturday afternoon ...
