LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The opening of the giant Ferris wheel at Waterfront Park is now open.

The 160-foot tall SkyStar Observation Wheel began operation Friday evening after a delay in construction brought on by all the rain in Louisville this week. 

The Ferris wheel is set up next to the Big Four Bridge and features 36 gondolas that can hold six people each. It also features a state-of-the-art LED light show each night.

A ride on the SkyStar will cost about $15 for adults and about $12 for kids. There is a discounted ticket for military, seniors and students that will save riders close to $2 after tax.

It will be open daily through May 6, the day after the Kentucky Derby. It will be running all day during Thunder Over Louisville, but it will close for the fireworks show. 

Advance ticket purchases available at www.skystarwheel.com.
