Skystar “Ferris Wheel” coming to Waterfront Park Spring 2018


You all! This Ferris wheel going to be so much fun and can you imagine the view on a gorgeous spring day……..then walking the Big Four Bridge and dining out in Jeffersonville. What an amazing day!

The SkyStar Observation Wheel will be at Waterfront Park’s Big Four® Lawn. It will be here for just 5 weeks and the dates are March 29-May 6. It is a traveling wheel and one of the tallest in America! It’s 140 ft!

You ride in one of 36 climate-controlled 6-passenger gondolas and you’ll get to see all over the Louisville skyline, down the river, across to Southern Indiana…..I am just imagining how amazing (unless you have a fear of heights!). This is not your average Ferris wheel. And, in the evening, it has an LED light show! See their Instagram post here.

And yes, it will be in operation during Thunder over Louisville and during WFPK Waterfront Wednesday concert series event.


The wheel will be open daily, 11:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. March 29-May 6.
