Moscow-850 (Russian: Колесо имени 850-летия Москвы) is a Ferris wheel in the amusement park "Moscow-850" on the territory of VDNKh (Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy), built for the 850th anniversary of Moscow and dismantled in 2016.
Moscow-850 had a diameter of 70 metres (230 ft) and an overall height of 73 metres (240 ft), made a full turn in 7 minutes, was equipped with 40 cabins, accommodating 8 people each. At the time of its construction, Moscow-850 was the tallest extant Ferris wheel in Europe, but in 1999 it was surpassed by the 90-metre Eurowheel at Mirabilandia, Italy. Moscow-850 was the tallest Ferris wheel in Russia until an 80-metre wheel opened in Lazarevskoye, near Sochi, in 2012.
