Radius at the Banks is thrilled to have the nation’s largest portable Ferris wheel right in our own backyard.
For a limited time, the Village Green Skystar, a 155-foot Ferris wheel with 36 six-person gondolas, has taken up residence at The Banks, giving riders a stunning 360-degree view of the Ohio Riverfront.
The Village Green Skystar is open to the public, and just one more reason to visit The Banks, which is already home to an impressive array of dining, shopping, entertainment and cultural destinations.
Bringing the Village Green Skystar to the neighborhood is no small feat, especially when you consider that it has to be transported on 12 semi-trailers and takes four days to build.
Additionally, It’s powered by six miles of electrical cable and adorned with 1,000,000 LED lights, creating quite the light show.
“A ride on the SkyStar wheel will include four revolutions and last approximately 12 minutes.” according to Todd Schneider of SkyStar.
