Ferris Wheel Ends Three-Month Run
St. Louis, MO – The giant Ferris Wheel has ended its three-month run in Forest Park.
The wheel was a tribute to the first-ever Ferris wheel, which was at the 19-04 World's Fair in St. Louis. That wheel was much bigger, though. It was just a few feet shorter than Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
Organizers estimate about 115,000 rides were given on this year's wheel this summer. It will now be taken apart and shipped back to California.
