Branson is getting a new “old” attraction. The ferris wheel that was dismantled at Navy Pier in Chicago in September to make way for an even larger one (nearly 50 feet taller and allowing 180 more passengers per ride year-round) is coming to the tourist town.
Track Family Fun Parks purchased the ferris wheel, which will be located at Track 4, 3345 W. 76 Blvd. The total cost of the new addition is expected to be around $2.5 million.
Craig Wescott, president and owner of Track Family Fun Parks, said it’s expected to open around Memorial Day.
