The arrival of Vue, the giant observation wheel, situated October 2013 on Civic Square, was a first for Ellesmere Port. Jan has a wealth of experience in setting up the big wheel, and made complying with health & safety requirements, structural engineering assessments, and setting up and taking down arrangements look simple to me.
During the operation of the big wheel, Jan de Koning and his team were a pleasure to work with and they were always available for any advice needed. The wheel was very much liked in Ellesmere Port, with people enjoying the rides and views, and I would recommend Jan to other towns and cities aiming to host a big wheel. ~ Jochem Hollestelle, Ellesmere Port Town Centre Improvement Manager.
