The Big Wheel was back on Eastbourne seafront yesterday opposite The Grand Hotel on the Western Lawns.
The 35-metre high big wheel is run by De Koning Leisure Group, which has 20 years of experience operating ferris wheels.
The site will operate from April 1 until October 31 with the process of dismantling completed by the end of November.
Last year the wheel stayed longer than expected – more than 25,000 people went on it.
Head of tourism and enterprise for Eastbourne Annie Wills said, “Tourism and enterprise are very supportive of this.
“This is a fabulous attraction on Eastbourne seafront and will generate an income for both the council and the wider community.”
