LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A giant Ferris wheel is coming to Waterfront Park's Big Four Lawn this spring.

The new attraction -- known as the SkyStar Observation Wheel -- was announced Thursday afternoon.

It includes 36 climate-controlled gondolas that can hold six people each.

Every night, the wheel will feature a state-of-the-art LED light show with more than 1 million colored lights. 

SkyStar will be operating during Thunder Over Louisville. But it won't be around too long. It's is only scheduled to be here for five weeks, from March 29 through May 6.
