According to WLUK, the nation’s largest producer of amusement rides and Ferris wheels, Chance Rides Manufacturing Inc. — located in Wichita, Kansas — is making the big wheel.

“The Big Wheel” is Bay Beach’s second Ferris wheel. WLUK says that one is more of a thrill ride and The Big Wheel will be slower and more scenic for riders.
