Branson Ferris Wheel Opens in Style

Just Keep Spinning!

After all these months of anticipation, the Branson Ferris Wheel is opening this Thursday, June 23.

Yes, this Thursday!

This is a don’t-miss event starting at NOON and going until LATE with plenty of fun for the entire family.

What is this fun I speak of?

Well, the obvious fun is finally getting to ride this beauty! In my last post, I mentioned I was afraid of heights, but that I was going to face my fears once and for all on the Branson Ferris Wheel. Well, I am happy to report that when offered the opportunity to be a test rider, I stepped into that gondola and rode it . . . three times! It was absolutely awesome. The views are breathtaking – so worth it!

In addition to riding the Branson Ferris Wheel on Thursday, you can also enjoy great entertainment throughout the day. Check out this entertainment schedule (click on the picture to see an enlarged view):

So, you might have noticed that there will be a light show (if you didn’t know, the Branson Ferris Wheel has 144,000 lights on it!) at 10:45 p.m. Yes, that’s late, but I guarantee that YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS. I have seen just a few pictures of what is in store for this show, and I can’t begin to describe how AWESOME it is going to be.

And as if that wasn’t enough, the evening will be capped off with an amazing fireworks show. Seriously!

Thursday, June 23 is going to be a day to remember in Branson. Be there!
