Construction on Bay Beach's Big Wheel underway
GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- Work on Bay Beach's newest ride has begun.
The Green Bay amusement park showed the beginning stages of The Big Wheel Thursday.
The 10-story Ferris Wheel will be open to riders in the summer of 2019.
The nation's largest producer of amusement rides and Ferris wheels, Chance Rides Manufacturing Inc. in Wichita, Kansas, is making The Big Wheel.
This will be Bay Beach's second Ferris wheel. The park says that one is more of a thrill ride and The Big Wheel will be a lot slower and more of a scenic ride.
