the Wood wheel is back in Ocean City MD, scheduled until late July, but things are getting complicated as the town says the wheel must move about 10 feet as it is hanging too far over the boardwalk

copy and paste this link to read just one of the many stories about this dilemma. Will be interesting to see how this plays out and if they actually will tear down this wheel, move it, and build it back up

seems kind of silly and being "hard headed" by the town, I mean come on just give them a waiver for this year and ask to make sure when (if) the wheel returns next season its put in a place that this doesn't happen again.

If it was something that was going to stay there for good, then I could understand the town's position, but most likely the wheel will move out in a few months for fair season and the problem will be solved.

according to this article they will tear down the wheel and not operate it this summer. wow, a lot of work. the ride is closed until it is dismantled so it only operated for about a week

sad to hear this as I had planned to ride it next month, probably very costly to Mr Wood

An example of how people that "say things done" think.

you can see about half of the wheel in this live camera view of it being dismantled
