Just read the same article and was going to post it, you beat me to it. LOL Fascinating, really, the re-birth of the giant Ferris Wheel around the world in the last few years.

I wonder who will be the first show on the east coast to get a Mega wheel like RCS. If that ride can make it on the west coast, it could survive on the East Coast and midwest.

Is there any proof th La Grande Wheel is carrying it's weight? Is there a chance it's just a Glorified Light Tower?

True that, but some showmen have ego's who would buy it anyway and tell ya it's "suckin up the tickets"

The ride will never make what it cost and costs to operate... its a booking piece. They probaly will make more money with it by gaining large dates, securing their spots, and other promotions like the Super Bowl then it ever will make in tickets.
