SkyStar Giant Ferris Wheel Coming To Louisville This Week (VIDEO)
Growing up I loved riding the Ferris wheel at the carnival when it would come to town. Waterfront Park in Louisville is expecting a giant traveling observation wheel to arrive sometime this week.
The SkyStar Observation Wheel is one of the world's tallest and will be in Kentucky for 5 weeks from Thursday, March 29, through, May 6. You do not want to miss an opportunity to ride this~
The ride can hold up to 216 people with 36 gondolas holding 6 people each. Riders will get to experience being extended 143 in the air at the highest point of the ride.
According to in formation from the Courier-Journal, Observation wheels are distinguished from Ferris wheels by industry experts based on the design of the cars, Schneider said. The observation wheels have enclosed, climate-controlled gondolas, while Ferris wheels typically have open-air seating.
"The unique and appealing offering of this Ferris wheel is it will always be fresh, always be exciting," she said. "It will be here at an exciting time: when spring is springing and flowers are blooming and people are anxious to get outside."
I would love to pay a visit while the wheel is close by. With the weather changing and the beautiful riverfront view it will surely be a place to take the kids and make great memories!
