LEGO has published high resolution images of the Ferris Wheel (10247), which is due for release in June this year.
LEGO describe this model as wonderful, iconic, majestic, delightful and magical. I largely agree, although I think that “iconic” should be reserved for RedCoKid’s Ferris Wheel! I love the colour scheme of the Ferris Wheel and also that it can be motorised, but the bit that actually caught my eye were the topiary trees. I presume these use the new stem pieces with the extra (uhm …) stem bits for holding more flowers.
Here are some more images of the new Ferris Wheel and below are the details from LEGO:
