Huge Ferris Wheel Planned in Vegas
Can you imagine a Ferris wheel taller than the HSBC tower in downtown Buffalo? It's the tallest building in the city, but a Ferris wheel taller than that? A developer in Vegas has unveiled plans for a version of the popular London Eye Ferris wheel. The one in Vegas would be 500-feet tall surrounded by retail and entertainment space on the south end of the Strip across from Mandalay Bay. It's a 175-million dollar project but the financing isn't in place yet.
That won't be the only big Ferris wheel in Vegas. Caesars Entertainment recently obtained a loan for its own giant Ferris wheel near the Flamingo hotel. It still needs county approval.
