New Branson Attraction: Iconic 15 story Chicago Navy Pier Ferris Wheel"



Yet another new attraction for Branson! The iconic 15 story "Chicago Navy Pier Ferris Wheel" is coming to The Track Family Fun Parks in Branson. To be located at its Track Four location on the Branson Strip; its 40 gondolas can hold 240 passengers, reaches 150 feet into the sky, and, it is hoped, will be open starting this summer.

The Big Wheel One More Time

Some interesting tidbits about the move, and a video that proves that it spins at breakneck-speed.

Thumbs up New Ferris Wheel

It is not quite as tall as the one that is at Six Flags, St. Louis (180 feet) . But, it will be fun to ride. My grandchildren certainly will want to ride it.

They were just talking about this on the local Oklahoma morning news, so Branson is getting some pub from it.

With a reported 2 million-plus price tag, I hope we can afford to ride it! Will be a great addition to the Branson skyline, and should be visible from several miles away at night.
