As the water level in the gondola sorted itself out, one of the crew gave a short talk about the Wheel. While he was doing this, Mr Monkey noticed that they'd started the wheel turning with telling anyone. Because the two gondolas are so well balanced and the movement is so smooth, the trip was a quarter over before anyone but Mr Monkey knew it had started.
