According to GWR, the Ferris wheel was put into freewheeling mode, in which the hydraulics and brakes are separated. In this the wheel is not operated in any way. Conley had to work single-handedly to turn it around. In this he had to use a lot of force.
Already recorded Guinness World Record
Conley informed GWR that this was one of the most difficult physical and mental challenges for me so far. I’ve done a lot of strength stuff over the years, but this was different from the rest. Never done such a thing before. It took me 100 percent strong mental balance to do this kind of work.
This is Conley’s fourth Guinness World Record. Earlier he has pulled cars with his teeth, pushed a heavy vehicle from a height of 100 feet and also pulled a light plane with his teeth for the fastest distance of 20 meters.
