June 18th – Wonder Wheel

Wonder Wheel. Built in 1918 and opened in 1920, this steel ferris wheel has both stationary cars and rocking cars that slide along a track. It holds 144 riders, stands 150 feet tall, and weighs over 2,000 tons. At night the Wonder Wheel’s steel frame is outlined and illuminated by neon tubes. It is part of Deno’s Wonder Wheel Amusement Park.[13]
