Did you know Chicago’s former Navy Pier Ferris wheel is now in Branson? Branson won the bid to move the 150-foot tall Ferris wheel to town in 2016. The ride was dismantled before traveling in numerous tractor trailers across the country. It was then rebuilt in Branson, and features 40 gondolas that can hold 240 riders. It also features 16,000 LED lights!
Hop inside a gondola to take a 15-minute spin around. Families can see the best views of Branson and the Ozark Mountains. Stick around at night for the music and light show that take place at the top of the hour.
The light show takes place at 8, 9 and 10 p.m. daily, weather permitting.
$12 for adults, $8 for children 11 and under and free for children 3 and younger.
Free parking surrounds the Ferris wheel.
