I spy….a double Ferris wheel!

Double Ferris wheel at the Got to Be NC Festival

This double Ferris wheel is being set up for the Got to Be NC Festival at the State Fairgrounds May 21-23 in Raleigh.

We get tons of questions every year before the State Fair from people wanting to know if their favorite food or attraction will be returning. Inevitably, each year, we get asked, “Will the double Ferris wheel be back this year?” The past few years, the answer has been “no.” Powers Great American Midways, the carnival company at the State Fair, does not own a double Ferris wheel, and while there have been four Ferris wheels on the grounds, none has been a double wheel.

If you want your fix of a double Ferris wheel, be sure to bring yourself on down to the Got to Be NC Festival at the State Fairgrounds this weekend. I’m not sure how many tickets it will take to ride this ride, but I’ll post ticket information below for your general information:

Ride Tickets:
Buy individual tickets for $1 each, a sheet of 14 tickets for $10. With the purchase of a sheet of 30 tickets for $20, riders will receive one free ride coupon, a $4 value – update: the free ride coupon offer good on Friday only. On Sunday, serious riders can buy an armband good for unlimited rides for only $20.

The carnival is open noon to midnight on Friday, 10 a.m. to midnight on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday.
