If the powers that be put a ferris wheel at Grand Exposition, it would lift up passengers above the tree height, and right there in your 1880's experience you would get a clear view of the intersection of Indian Point Road and Highway 76 and all that traffic. A ferris wheel is fine, but maybe they could place it somewhere on park so we don't have to see traffic going by. Some people would not care...after all you get a wonderful view of condos on Table Rock at Wilderness Church and the viewing platform at Wildfire...plus from the cars on the track at Wildfire and Powder Keg. It's just the way it is...well, EXCEPT back in Miss Mary's time...but we are NOT in her time anymore as we have discussed here many times before.  ;)

Goofin off, found a hub and spoke design ferris wheels with lots of theming wiggle room from Zamperla. They got those little up and down rides at the giant swings how bout is there somewhere to go along with the woodie.  That's a higer area,so place it where it overlooks  most of the park

Oh, hey, I've seen one of those! I think that'd be a great little themed ride!

I agree with Trams. It looks a bit tacky to me. Besides, wagons are sooo impractical in these hills! ;D

Hey, maybe they could make one of those wheels with say, DIVING BELLS on them!  :D

It was more of an example, I'm sure the City could come up with a more fitting theme,

Hey, say how about one with balloons:




And with the effect and animatronics out there, I'd want something much more for a new Diving Bell attraction that should happen one day soon. It's only right.

I think any modern looking ferris wheel would be terrible for the city, regardless of theming. The only way it might work is if they tried to sort of replicate the original ferris wheel from the St. Louis World's Fair. That would be a massive custom job with little pay-off though, so it would never happen.

Let's just bring back our old balloons. That would make me a happy camper :)

Maybe they'll have somewhere near the new coaster for the balloons.

The things in the original concept art of Wilson's Farm and what ended up there are different. I also remember that the survey had the swings at where the waterboggin was. I still think a new spinning coaster with indoor/dark elements with outdoor sections with a small tunnel section would rock. And it would fit perfect right there. Maybe some sort of water element. Take a neat feature of some of newer themed ones and make a super one with all those included.

I hate them too! I'm afraid of heights, so that's why I hate them. As long as I keep moving, like rollercoasters and stuff I'm fine, but as soon as I get stopped at the top, that's it for me!! No thank you!
