Space Wheels

In 1960 Pacific Ocean Park added a double Ferris Wheel for an attraction called the Space Wheels. To add to the excitement, the ride was lit with lots of lights at night.

This ride was more commonly known as the "Sky Wheel" and was manufactured by Chance Rides. I loved riding it at the local county fair when I was a kid in the 60s. Haven't seen one around since then.

And if you are referring to the OC Fair, I too rode one each year it was there. What a great ride and memory. Wonder if there are any left.
