"You know, this thing may look like a windmill, but it's actually a wind-powered ferris wheel! It used to harness the wind's power to spin in quite a nifty manner..."

The Ferris Wheel is a location from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Located on Windfall Island, it serves not only as a Ferris Wheel, but as a lighthouse as well. If Link changes the direction of the wind to the north by conducting the "Wind's Requiem" with the Wind Waker, and steps on the switch on top of the ladder in the back of Salvatore's shop, the Ferris Wheel is reactivated. If a Fire Arrow is shot into the center of the unlit beacon at the top of the structure, Kreeb will give Link a Piece of Heart for seeing the lighthouse's light restored, which he is overjoyed to see. A Treasure Chest holding a Piece of Heart on a small island to the south of Windfall Island also materializes at night.
