THE MIDWAY SKY EYE

North America’s largest, portable observation wheel — promoted as the “ride of a lifetime” — will make its way to the South Florida Fair for the first time. Co-owned by Frank Zaitshik of Wade Shows, the fair’s midway operator, and Michael Wood of Wood Entertainment, the Midway Sky Eye will arrive at the fairgrounds on Sat., Jan. 6, and set up will begin on Sun., Jan. 7. It’s expected to take three days to complete it.

The Midway Sky Eye, which was manufactured by the Lamberink company in the Netherlands, made its North American debut at the 2017 Florida State Fair. The giant wheel requires a 160,000 pound crane to erect the towers. The heaviest part is the center axle, which weighs 6,600 pounds. In all, the ride weighs more than 400,000 pounds — about 20 times as heavy as an elephant!

The massive wheel reaches a peak height of 155 feet and is comprised of more than 500 pieces. It reaches so high that it requires FAA clearance, which has already been obtained. The wheel is equipped with more than 524,000 individual LED red, green, blue, yellow, orange and purple lights, making it the brightest spectacle at the fair, and requires more than six miles of electrical wiring. The 36 gondolas hold six riders each, who can see for miles from the top.

The ride will cost $5/ticket and is excluded from wrist bands. Riders must be 42 inches tall without a supervising companion or 36 inches with a supervising companion. Other restrictions may apply.

Covid-19 Safety

2020 has been an unprecedented year for all of us and we are so happy to once again be welcoming you back safely to our carnival midway. Our team has been hard at work creating mitigation strategies, studying CDC and industry guidelines and developing a plan to help minimize risk for COVID 19 for employees and guests when you return to one of our events.


You will notice things have changed for this year -- our employees are masked, we will be practicing social distancing on the midway and in lines, restricting the number of patrons per ride in some cases, and increasing our cleaning protocols, to name just a few -- all in an effort to bring you the best industry practices available to reduce risk to disease transmission during your visit. Of course, all activities come with a certain amount of risk. Our goal is to follow CDC guidelines and industry standards to reduce the risk to you and your family.


Our plan requires participation from our team members and guests alike -- we all have a role to play in order to enable us to operate as safely as possible while bringing excitement back to an event near you. By working together, we can reduce risk and continue the midway traditions that have made memories for generations.


Please review our midway mitigation plan and learn what role YOU and our EMPLOYEES play, and what you NEED TO KNOW before coming to your next Wade Shows event.


Thank you in advance for helping to do your part to abide by the new midway rules. Working TOGETHER we can get back to the fun!


Frank Zaitshik
President

Wade Shows had their cameras on the rides, so you could experience the rides virtually before coming to the Fair!
