600-foot observation wheel planned for Euless development
Construction of a 600-foot observation wheel is being planned at a 200-acre development called the Villages of Bear Creek in Euless, owned by Bear Creek Associates II and Bear Creek Associates III partnerships.

Bennett Realty Group of Laguna Hills, Calif., will provide the required acreage for Voyager Entertainment International Inc. (BB: VEII) to build the observation wheel and an entertainment complex.

The land will be developed as a "town center" or "lifestyle center." The proposed development will include retail, a theater, restaurants, nightclubs and entertainment venues, as well as a mixture of office space, hotels, and high-rise residential living.

The 600-foot tall high-tech attraction to be built by Voyager of Las Vegas, will have the capacity of 7.5 million guests per year with an average individual ride ticket of $18, according to Voyager.

Each wheel consists of 32 sky cruisers seating 20 passengers and making a complete revolution every 27 minutes. Each sky cruiser consists of its own galley and bathroom.

This new concept surpasses that of the London Eye Ferris Wheel, which has approximately 4 million riders per year, according to Voyager.
