I always find out about these things AFTER the fact.
Rides on Navy Pier’s Centennial Wheel were free for the first 1,700 riders (or until about noon) to celebrate the New Year.
Get it? 2017…1,700 rides!
It’s been pretty cold lately, but I didn’t realize till I saw this news report that all the gondolas on the fancy, bigger and better Ferris Wheel actually have heat!
Supposedly they’ll be doing more free ride promotions throughout the year. Hopefully I’ll find out about those BEFORE they happen!
