Niagara SkyWheel almost ready to go again.

No Comments

UPDATE: I wrote this post yesterday (Thursday) and scheduled it to go up this morning. It turns out that the SkyWheel actually opened yesterday at dinner time.

The Niagara SkyWheel took a couple of weeks to come down, and was down for about 6 weeks. I was wondering if it would get open for this coming Victoria Day weekend. It appears the answer is Yes!
It has gone up rather quickly, and seems like it is almost ready.

These pictures were taken over the last week, but it now appears to be entirely ready.

As a side note, I’m not really afraid of heights, but I’m not sure I’d want that job standing in the middle of the wheel working on it!
