The Wonder Wheel On Mother’s Day

Friday May 8th, 11:29 pm by TTSNYC.

Deno’s Wonder Wheel at Coney Island is something everyone should experience once.  It was named a New York City Landmark in 1989, and now is your chance to go.  On Sunday for Mother’s Day, any Mom who sings karaoke with her child will receive a free Wonder Wheel t-shirt!  Go for a ride on the 150 foot high wheel after you get your free t-shirt.  It has a diameter of 140 feet and can hold 144 people at one time.  Once you reach the area, you know you’re there by the sight of the huge Wonder Wheel.  It was built in 1920 by the Eccentic Ferris Wheel Company and is made of 100% Bethlehem Steel (So it’s super strong).  This wheel is no ordinary ferris wheel, the cars on the inside fall back and forth while the wheel turns, and the cars on the outside are stationary, besides rocking side to side.  Whatever car you choose to ride in, you’ll find it to be more thrilling of a ride than a normal ferris wheel.  If you’re worried about the safety, don’t give it another thought.  This 400,000 pound structure is re-painted every year to protect it from weather and natural wearing.  All of the cars are taken down to ensure for proper care.  Go buy a ticket, get in line and go for a spin!
