South Florida Fair to feature North America’s tallest traveling Ferris wheel

The South Florida Fair’s newest attraction will send you so high in the air that the Federal Aviation Administration had to approve it.

The Midway Sky Eye is a Ferris wheel that rises 155 feet, placing you at eye level with some of the taller buildings in South Florida. It weighs more than 400,000 pounds — heavier than about two dozen elephants. The ride will be lit up by more than a half-million LED lights.

The Sky Eye is the tallest traveling Ferris wheel in North America, its owners say. You can see for yourself Sunday, when crews begin setting it up at the fairgrounds, 9067 Southern Blvd., in West Palm Beach.

The fair opens Jan. 12.
