Still date in Saint Louis one spring the show was busted for no permits..... I was up top taking a break smoking a joint. Watched the whole thing go down from up there.

Last one I saw on the road was on Stine amusements and that was many years ago. Doesn't Belle City still travel with one? I'm sure I saw one there at the Strawberry festival the last time I was there. That HAS been a few years now but....... it was beautiful to see. All the lights were working and kept a tip as far as I could see. Can also remember seeing two side by side at Tampa one year.... it was glorious.



Yep, Belle City has one, as well as:

Modern Midways
Big Rock Amusements
Drew Expo (has the original Space Wheels)

and a few others

It is, that was the only double sky wheel built, all the rest are single units (sometimes put side by side years ago).

Now, there are two Seattle Wheels with slightly different designs, one the road with Drew, the other owned by someone up north (can't remember who).

The original Velare is own by Bradd Burton.
