200 foot Observation Wheel for Venice!!!By
Venice Beach and its community is excited over plans to put a 200 foot observation wheel on Windward Plaza at Ocean Front Walk near Windward Ave! UK-based Great City Attractions has asked for a three-year permit to put up a 200 foot wheel with an 82 foot base and “42 enclosed air-conditioned capsules that would give people a 360-degree view from the beach during a 15-minute ride,” according to Venice Patch. These Capsules would fit six people each and one would be designated VIP, with no line and a champagne toast, for which the company will need to get a liquor permit. Non-VIP rides will cost $10 to $15 dollars. The plan is estimated to cost $12-13 million, with revenue going to the LA Department of Recreation and Parks, which will dedicate a portion for Venice!
