I saw a story on CNN today about a figure-eight ferris wheel being built in Macau.
I'm curious what path the cabins take, and how this occurs. Do they actually follow a figure eight pattern? Do they move from one wheel to the other somehow?
The story has a picture with the caption
The cabins don't actually cross in the middle. They follow a gourd-shaped track. Each ride takes around 15 minutes.
I don't understand what that means. A "gourd-shaped" track?
