ferris wheel

They're bringing some cool stuff to Nashville (the bubble drive-in theater, a possible skyscraper roller coaster, etc). Is a giant freakin ferris wheel in our future?


The Metro Sports Authority has been talking to a company that wants to put what they call an "observation wheel" to some property near Nissan Stadium.  They're hoping to fill in one of the criticisms of Nashville Tourism: a lack of family friendly stuff to do.


Ferris wheels (or "observation wheels") have been popping up all over.  There's the London Eye. Washington D.C. has the Capital Wheel. There's one in Maryland that was made by the same company hoping to put one here (as seen in tweet above). 

This kind of begs the questions, "Will this keep Nashville unique?" or "Will it make Nashville like every other tourist destination?".
