For a limited time, NYC’s Times Square is getting a giant 110 feet tall Ferris wheel

With 50 million visitors a year, New York City Times Square attracts more attention than any US attraction. The pandemic may have dulled its charm for a while; but the area sees around 340,000 pedestrians pass through on a typical day. To bounce back from the pandemic, a giant Ferris wheel is coming to Times Square. According to The Post, plans have escalated quickly. The 110 feet high Ferris wheel (the equivalent of 11 stories) will start getting assembled as soon as Thursday and be ready to hoist passengers high above the Crossroads of the World beginning early next week.

Times Square Alliance President Tom Harris called it “an incredible new way to enjoy Times Square from a completely new vantage point as we navigate these times and reflect on all we have been through this past year.” Times Square Alliance president Tom Harris told The Post, “We want to give people that ‘wow’ moment to show them Times Square is back.”
