It has been here since ages… (ok, ok lets say months).
Perhaps it aimed at having a phenomenal success just like the Moonwalker, one of the most popular attractions of the island. However it has never been put in operation. At its mere sight, you won’t even think to approach it in fear that it break into pieces… And it is nearly running into ruins.
Yes, you have perhaps seen it, the thing (technically known as a Ferris Wheel) standing in Champs de Mars, Port Louis.
Officially opened on 1st September 2007, the Moonwalker has been in Mauritius for several months, to the joy of the Mauritians. Indeed, there hasn’t been any attraction of this kind in Mauritius and the Moonwalker has given the opportunity to discover the pleasure, fun and fear of amusement parks while rotating in the air for around 5mins.
While doing some research for this post, I found out that the Moonwalker can (perhaps) be categorized as a Kamikaze ride.
Just besides the thing (mentioned above), a bumper car park which does not seem to have much luck either but it is nevertheless operational in the evening…
But for how long?
Awaiting to ride in another amusement ride in Mauritius 😛
What about you?
