Ferris Wheel Takes The Harbor

Ferris WheelI’m going to be up front about this: I am overly ecstatic about the 175-foot Ferris wheel coming to the National Harbor in May, which will feature 42 eight-person gondolas for passengers. According to DCist, the Ferris wheel will provide a means for you and seven of your closest friends to experience what will be a magical flight over the city in a gondola!

The developers from Peterson Companies seem to have done an incredible job spreading the word about this new wheel, recruiting all of these renowned artists to perform songs about the joys of Ferris wheel-ing! (Note: They didn’t actually do this, but you should watch the videos anyway.)

Up there soarin’ and flyin’ on the Ferris wheel, I can say with certainty that you can reach every star in heaven! There’s not one that you can’t reach!

Elfie said it right: Everyone deserves a chance to fly!

Then there’s my girl Selena who so aptly describes how once you’re on the ride, you’ll go round and round.

Get out to the National Harbor in May, Hoyas! Hop in a gondola and you’ll be flying up, up and away in no time!
