wheel of laugh (park ride or circus attraction)
Explanation:
1) I think you are correct. It is a park ride od side-show or attraction in circus:
Еще было "Колесо смеха" - круг, установленный в центре зала с мягкими бортиками. Желающие усаживались на него, и он начинал крутиться, похожий на огромную пластинки. Фокус был в том, чтобы удержаться на этом колесе до конца аттракциона.
(Wheel with soft boarders installed in the center of the hall start turning like a gigant gramophone disk. Goal was to keep oneself on it up to the end of attraction.)The secret is to be near the center.

2) Also Russian humorous newspaper

3) Instrument of torture

etc.

But I do not know how does it called in English. Maybe "wheel oh laugh" or something like that.
