The State Fair of Texas Boasts the Largest Ferris Wheel in the Lone Star State
Everything is bigger in Texas -- even the ferris wheels.
The monstrously tall Texas Star ferris wheel at the State Fair of Texas in Dallas measures at mind-boggling 212 feet and 6 inches tall. It can also hold up to 264 passengers at a time. That's a lot of happy Texans!
Below is a photo the State Fair of Texas shared on Facebook from the ferris wheel's debut back in 1985.
The 2020 State Fair of Texas goes down September 25th through October 18th. Tickets are already available at the fair's official website.
