Work has been completed on the Pripyat Ferris Wheel to protect it from damage

A few days ago, it was discovered that for the second time the Pripyat Ferris Wheel had been vandalised by illegal visitors to Chernobyl, and as a result was moving freely.

This obviously poses a safety risk to people around it, but also a risk to the structural integrity of the wheel and risks it decaying even faster.

Thankfully, COTIZ staff have carried out repairs to stabilize the structure and hopefully make it harder for vandals in future to attempt a similar project.
