Branson Getting New "Skyscraper" Thrill Ride

https://www.ozarksfirst.com/news/bra...e-1/1704697433

The skyscraper will stand 170 feet tall at its peak, right off the Branson strip. That’s about 20 feet taller than the Ferris wheel, about a half mile away. At the site now, drill crews are preparing the ground.

"They are actually, started working yesterday and they're moving along very quickly, so we're really pleased."

Skyscraper resembles a giant windmill with propeller arms turning at about 60 miles per hour.

"They'll see the skyscraper turning at a very rapid pace and then in the distance, they'll see the Ferris Wheel at one of our other locations..and it will be turning at a much more leisurely pace..so."

OK, so where is "about a half mile away"? What's it close to, or what used to be there?
