BRANSON, Mo. – The final pieces of the Chicago Navy Pier Ferris Wheel arrive in Branson on Thursday.
On January 29th, the Track Family Fun Park announced it would be bringing the iconic 15-story Ferris wheel to its Track Four location as part of a two-point-five-million-dollar development.
Track Family Fun Parks President Craig Wescott says different pieces of the Ferris wheel have been arriving all week in storage containers and on the back of flatbed tractor trailers:
Wescott says they hope to have the team from Chicago in Branson by April, to begin the assembly process. He adds there are still a number of phases to get through before project completion, but the plan is to have the Ferris wheel operational by this summer.
