Wheel Fun Facts

How many lights does it take to light the Branson Ferris Wheel? Would you believe, we've added 16,000 LED fixtures holding over 144,000 individual lights! Each light can be computer-controlled to light up the Branson sky in an array of colors and animations. But there’s more than meets the eye here! The Branson Ferris Wheel is built to last for generations, with its foundation constructed using over 4 million pounds of concrete, over 6 million pounds of gravel and 80,000 pounds of steel, and piers that go down as far as 23 ft. into the solid rock beneath you!
