York's answer to the London Eye has marked its first birthday by launching a bid to stage the largest ever wheel of fortune.
The wheel is 197ft high and offers panoramic vistas
A golden ticket will be given to one person to visit the wheel or the nearby National Railway Museum, chosen at random each day for the next 42 days.
Those who receive tickets will enter the event on 24 May.
The empty wheel will be spun as quickly as possible, and pods which land where X marks the spot will win prizes.
The Yorkshire Wheel is the county's only giant observation wheel and stands at 60m (200ft), 9m (29ft) lower than the city's famous Minster.
Judith Whitaker, head of commercial development for the National Railway Museum, said: "We wanted the Yorkshire Wheel's first birthday celebrations to be something very different and great fun, and this should certainly be both of those things.
"The advantage of our wheel has over others is that it can spin faster and be stopped randomly - without anyone in the pods of course."
