The wheel is turning on new Ferris wheel at Bay Beach

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) -- The Green Bay Park Committee unanimously recommended accepting the Friends of Bay Beach donation for a new Ferris wheel on Wednesday.

The design of the Ferris wheel is still being sorted out, but city officials are looking at a 96 or 108 foot Ferris wheel; double the current Ferris wheel's size.

The new ride would cost $2.1 million all funded by private donations raised by the Friends of Bay Beach.

The parks committee hopes to have it installed by 2019.

The measure still needs to be approved by the city council.
