I was in Seattle a few days ago, where they have a Ferris wheel on the waterfront (above).
It would not be too difficult to make Ferris pods watertight, whereupon part of the ride in any ocean or river city could go underwater. At the top you'd get a view across the city, and at the bottom you'd get a view of the fishes. Plus there would be a small frisson for the wheel riders as each pod submerged.
It would work particularly well next to a reef dropoff, where the pods on the wheel could go down next to the coral wall.
Go build one, World!
