Developer again proposing Vegas Strip Ferris wheel

By Associated Press


LAS VEGAS >> A developer whose similar plan stalled a decade ago won county approval to try to build a 500-foot Ferris wheel and amusement park on the Las Vegas Strip.

Clark County commissioners gave unanimous approval Wednesday for a use permit for a 10-acre amusement park on land that developer Howard Bulloch owns next to McCarran International Airport and across Las Vegas Boulevard from the Mandalay Bay resort.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Bulloch provided no details about funding during a recession, or customer interest in an area where past family entertainment projects have failed.

Casino giant Caesars Entertainment also wants to build a Ferris wheel project, on another Strip site.

Bulloch says his ride would be the third-largest Ferris wheel in the world — bigger even than the 443-foot-tall London Eye.
