Ferris Wheel catches fire at Dinosaur Park in Bangkok


A ferris wheel caught fire over the weekend on Saturday at a new dinosaur theme park.  The attraction is called the The Dino Eye, and is one of the centerpiece attractions at the park, sending riders 5-stories high.

The fire is under investigation but is believed to be caused by an electrical short circuit.  The fire broke out after a thunderstorm in the Thai capital

“At the time of the incident, no one was on the ferris wheel,” the park said in a statement on its Facebook page.

Dinosaur Planet opened on March 25
