5 things to know about the St. Louis Wheel

Originally set to open in October, the Wheel will now take its first passengers on September 30.

September 13, 2019

Illustration by Tom White

Originally set to open in October, the St. Louis Wheel will begin its 30 rotations per hour, giving passengers 15-minute rides, earlier than anticipated. 

With a new grand opening of 10 a.m. on September 30, the St. Louis Wheel ’s production has happened quite quickly, right in front of St. Louisans' eyes. Maybe that's a result of how carefully choreographed its construction has been. So carefully choreographed that when the large steel beams arrived by semitrailers from a plant in Wichita, Kansas, they were almost immediately put in place.  

“There’s not a lot of ground to lay those pieces out,” says general manager Karyn Wilder. Paric ’s crew blocked off a portion of 20th Street for trucks to unload off the highway. “I’m telling you,” Wilder laughs, “those are some skilled truck drivers.” The crews worked fast and, with the help of many cranes, the wheel took shape.

A part of Lodging Hospitality Management ’s $187 million revamp of Union Station , the attraction’s Downtown West location was just one consideration. With Union Station being on the National Historic Register, most steps had to be federally approved.

Wilder expects the wheel will get large crowds, noting how often passersby asked when the attraction will be open to the public. “Observation wheels can see attendance and revenue that rivals entire theme parks,” she says. “[The wheel] is such an integral part of revitalizing the downtown area, redeveloping the Union Station complex. That’s our focus—whatever we need to do to make it a top-notch attraction that people are proud of.”

St. Louis Wheel at Union Station

Here are five other things to know about the Wheel:

1. At 200 feet tall, the St. Louis Wheel stands taller than the Statue of Liberty. The massive structure weighs a whopping 640,000 pounds, 320 tons. 

2. According to the attraction's website, a ride in a regular gondola costs $15 for adults (13 years or older); $10 for children (ages 3 to 12).

3. The wheel is outfitted with 1.6 million LED lights that can produce 16.7 million color combinations. At other locations, Wilder says, the wheel’s colors are often used for gender reveals.

4. Made in Switzerland, the 42 ADA-compliant gondolas fit eight people each. Want a little luxury with the view? Try the VIP gondola, where guests can sit in leather bucket seats and view the city through a glass floor.  

5. A two-week safety testing process entails testing the wheel’s speeds, motors, and brakes—in one test, the brakes were sprayed with water to simulate rain. When the team didn’t use steel weights to simulate human weight, they loaded barrels of water into gondolas for a ride. “Probably the trickiest thing about the wheel is, it needs a balanced load to run efficiently,” Wilder says, noting the team’s numerous balancing-scenarios tests.

8 Fun Things to Do in St. Louis with Kids

L ong known as the “Gateway to the West,” St. Louis is usually associated with its famous Arch or maybe Budweiser beer (both accurate). But for families, there’s so much more to St. Louis than a tour of the King of Beer (though children are welcome are some tours ). That’s because many of the best things to do in St. Louis with kids also happen to be fun for adults. It’s win-win.

Fun Things to Do in St. Louis with Kids

St. Louis is a river city, hugging the shoreline of the Mississippi. And in recent years, the city has undergone a makeover of sorts, with updates that include a major renovation of the Gateway Arch National Park plus a new aquarium and other attractions at Union Station. These days, the city is a perfect long weekend destination for families with children of all ages. Here are eight fun things to do with kids in St. Louis.

IDEAL ITINERARIES: 12 Midwest Family Vacations Packed with Fun

1. Gateway Arch National Park

While the Arch is the major attraction at Gateway Arch National Park , you’ll want to start a visit with a stop at The Museum at the Gateway Arch. Offering a look at St. Louis’ history from its First People to development as a river town, the museum includes interactive exhibits that shine a light on the city, which was originally founded at nearby historic Laclede’s Landing.

HIT THE ROAD: 6 Scenic Midwest Road Trips for Outdoorsy Families  

An Arch experience starts with a short ride to the to the top in four-person egg-shaped pods. From the top, 630 feet above the ground, visitors peer through the slots of the Arch for views of St. Louis and the Illinois side of the Mississippi River stretching for about 30 miles. Visitors generaly have 15 to 20 minutes to enjoy the views. The Arch isn’t accessible for people in wheelchairs, as visitors need to walk at least 96 steps at the pods and the observation floor.

The Old Courthouse , site of the famous Dred Scott decision, which legalized slavery before the Civil War, is also considered part of the Gateway Arch National Park. A paved path takes visitors from the Arch to the Old Courthouse.

2. St. Louis Union Station

More than 100,000 people made their way through St. Louis’ Union Station during the heyday of rail travel. And though the last train passed through this station in the 1970s, the station’s limestone exterior and Romanesque design has remained a part of the cityscape. Since its rail hub days, Union Station has tried on identities ranging from shopping center to entertainment complex, but nothing thrived here until someone reimagined the space as a giant aquarium plus a ropes course, mini golf course, and home to a Ferris wheel. Today, Union Station is once again a major attraction in the city.

With more than 13,000 animals, the St. Louis Aquarium anchors the revitalized Union Station. The aquarium’s exhibits include marine life from around the world, including zebra sharks and river otters. For some rail-themed fun, grab a seat aboard a train exhibit and take a virtual tour of the area, traveling below the Mississippi River as you view scenes from the train’s windows.

FALL FUN: 6 Family-Friendly Fall Foliage Destinations in the Midwest  

When you’re ready for thrills, navigate 30 obstacles over three stories as you traverse the Rope Course . With wooden bridges, tightropes and other challenges, the course takes climbers above Union Station’s lobby. After conquering the ropes course, enjoy a victory lap on the SkyRail zipline as you soar 50 feet above the lobby.

Enjoy a special view of St. Louis with a ride on the St. Louis Wheel , a Ferris wheel with 42 four-passenger-enclosed gondolas. The 15-minute experience takes riders 200 feet high, and features unique views of St. Louis.

Visitors to Union Station can also enjoy 18 holes of Mini Golf , as well as maneuver through Mirror Maze’s hallway of mirrors, with interactive exhibits reflecting on the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair.

3. St. Louis Zoo

Considered one of the best zoos in the world, the St. Louis Zoo is home to about 16,000 animals—plan to spend an entire day here—including African painted dogs, Amur tigers, red pandas, and a variety of primates and bears, including polar bears.

UNDERWATER WONDERS: 11 Best U.S. Aquariums to Visit with Kids

Check out the sea lion exhibit, where you may find these marine mammals resting atop the underwater tunnel; and the penguins, which waddle and play just a few feet from you in an open-air environment. The zoo also features unique attractions like the Conservation Carousel (ADA compliant), Zooline Railroad, 4D Theater, and Stingrays at Caribbean Cove.

While the St. Louis Zoo offers free admission, there is paid parking and some of the exhibits do require a fee.

4. Magic House

Located inside a Victorian-era mansion, Magic House is a children’s museum that offers learning experiences while children play with interactive exhibits. From fun with science at the STEAM exhibit to exploring the world of nature, the beloved Magic House in Kirkwood features more than 20 permanent and special exhibits for families to explore.

5. Missouri Botanical Garden

The oldest botanical gardens still active in the United States, the Missouri Botanical Gardens have called St. Louis home since 1859. A respite in the busy city, the botanical gardens features several outdoor gardens—picture Japanese and Chinese gardens as well as a Victorian garden—surrounded by lovely Victorian era buildings. While you’re there, don’t miss a stroll through the Rose Garden with its variety of colorful roses.

PACK WELL: 11 Stylish and Durable Luggage Brands for Everyone in the Family

Indoor attractions at the Missouri Botanical Garden include the Climatron, which is a geologic dome used to house more than 2,800 plants and trees in a tropical forest. The Botanical Gardens also hosts special exhibits, such as Chihuly blown-glass art and Chinese lanterns.

6. Grant’s Farm

A gift to future President Ulysses S. Grant and his wife Julia, Grant’s Farm mixes history and nature. While the Grants’ log cabin is located at the farm, the family only lived there for a short period. Now owned by the Busch family, public trolley tours are offered of the family’s mansion.

AGRITOURISM: 5 Family Farm Stays Where You Can Reconnect with Nature (and Each Other)  

But, the main attractions at the popular Grant’s Farm may be the wildlife. While the famous Clydesdale horses are kept on site in historic stables, visitors are urged to reserve a spot on an open-air vehicle that includes a drive through Deer Park wildlife reserve, where they can see animals such as bison, black buck antelope, zebras, and longhorn cattle up-close. Be sure to grab an ice cream cone full of pellets to feed animals by hand.

7. City Museum

Exploring City Museum is like finding a giant playground for kids of all ages. The well-reviewed City Museum has fun for both adults and children, with structures that range from a treehouse and caves on the first floor to a slide that covers several floors. An aquarium features giant replicas of sharks and other marine life along with fish from around the world.

Explore three stories of curiosities that feature everything from a giant pencil to classic architecture. Outdoor attractions include a rooftop slide, Ferris wheel, and a school bus that extends over the edge of the building.

8. Riverboat Cruise

Enjoy a one-hour Riverboat Cruise on the Mississippi River, passing some of the city’s historical landmarks such as Laclede’s Landing and the Gateway Arch, as well as taking on views of downtown St. Louis. Riverboat cruises include a daily tour, dinner cruise, brunch cruise, and specialty tours, such as a jazz cruise. Note that it’s a good idea to book this popular attraction in advance, since tickets sell out quickly.

Prince William Dancing to "Shake It Off" at Taylor Swift Concert Is a Must-See Moment

Prince william showcased his dance moves while attending taylor swift's eras tour concert in london with children prince george, 10, and princess charlotte, 9..

Prince William was dancing like nobody was watching at Taylor Swift 's London concert.

That is, if "nobody" was the some 90,000 fellow fans at London's Wembley Arena. While watching the singer's Eras tour show from a VIP box with kids Prince George , 10, and Princess Charlotte , 9, June 21, the Prince of Wales danced to "Shake It Off" and a fan's video of him showcasing his moves has gone viral.

William, who was celebrating his 42nd birthday , and the children got to meet Taylor in person as well. He and the "Blank Space" singer shared photos of themselves taking selfies backstage, with the Grammy winner including her boyfriend  Travis Kelce  in her pic, making their relationship Instagram official  less than a year after they began dating.

"Happy Bday M8!" she captioned her post. "London shows are off to a splendid start."

William, who famously performed with Taylor and  Jon Bon Jovi  at an event in Kensington Palace in 2013 , captioned his pic, shared on his and wife Kate Middleton 's Instagram page, "Thank you @taylorswift for a great evening! #LondonTSTheErastour."

The royal family outing comes less than a week after the Princess of Wales joined her husband and kids , including youngest son   Prince Louis , 6, at the annual Trooping the Colour parade, a celebration of King Charles III 's birthday. It marked Kate's first in-person public appearance since last Christmas and took place almost two months after she revealed her cancer diagnosis . She is still undergoing treatments.

On June 14, Kate shared an update on her health battle , saying on Instagram she hoped to "join a few public engagements over the summer, but equally knowing I am not out of the woods yet."

The princess said she was undergoing chemotherapy and was "making good progress," adding that her "treatment is ongoing and will be for a few more months."

William, the couple's eldest kids and Travis were not the only celebs spotted at Taylor's London concerts this weekend. Also seen at the June 21 show: the athlete's brother Jason Kelce   and his wife Kylie Kelce ,  Bridgerton 's  Nicola Coughlan , Queer Eye  alum  Jonathan Van Ness ,  Leslie Mann and  Cara Delevigne .

Protestors invade PGA Tour final round at Travelers Championship

CROMWELL, CONNECTICUT - JUNE 23: Climate change protestors are ushered off the 18th green by police officers during the final round of the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands on June 23, 2024 in Cromwell, Connecticut. (Photo by James Gilbert/Getty Images)

Climate change protestors invaded the final round of the PGA Tour event on Sunday.

The Travelers Championship in Cromwell, Conn., had to be briefly delayed by the group that ran out from the crowd on the 18th green.

The drama began on the 18th hole, with Tom Kim trailing Scottie Scheffler by a stroke and needing a birdie — and Scheffler par — to force a playoff. Kim hit what had to be one of the best approach shots of his life from 131 yards out — the third bounce on the green landed an inch to the right of the cup, and settled 10 feet away.

As Scheffler was lining up his first putt five protestors stormed the 18th green from all angles. They were quickly apprehended by local police and pinned to the green before being taken away, but not before leaving white and red colored residue on the green.

Kim made his birdie putt to force the playoff, but tournament officials determined to move the pin position for the playoff, taking it closer to the front edge of the green and away from the most significant damage.

“The security guards were tackling people and people were getting arrested, like it’s just, it’s really hard to see nowadays,” Kim said. “… It kind of felt like it took my mind off of the moment and just kind of realized what was happening and obviously even though those people did something bad, you still don’t want them to get hurt … the police are trying to protect the players and stuff, I get it, but you still don’t want people to get hurt and I think it just kind of personally just took my mind away from golf a little bit and worried about something else.”

Extinction Rebellion took credit for the protest, citing a lightning strike that injured two fans during Saturday’s round at Travelers as an example of “increasingly unpredictable and extreme weather conditions.”

“We are all watching the climate catastrophe unfold at warp speed. Our relatively mild disruption of the Travelers Championship calls attention to nature’s much more severe and long-lasting disruptions,” said Miles Grant, a spokesperson for Extinction Rebellion, in a statement.

Atlanta braves at st. louis cardinals odds, picks and predictions, share this article.

The Atlanta Braves (43-33) take on the St. Louis Cardinals (40-37) Tuesday in the 2nd game of a 3-game set at Busch Stadium at 7:45 p.m. ET. Let’s analyze BetMGM Sportsbook’s lines around the Braves vs. Cardinals odds and make our expert MLB picks and predictions for the best bets.

Season series: Cards lead 1-0

The Braves fell 4-3 in the opener Monday night. OF Jarred Kelenic and 2B Ozzie Albies went 0-for-8 atop of the lineup, but Albies just missed a home run that died at the warning track. Atlanta made things interesting in the 9th when Cards closer Ryan Helsley allowed 2 ER on 2 H and 2 BB before shutting the door.

We cashed the +100 Cardinals moneyline Monday night. The Cards beat a really good team with 1B Paul Goldschmidt and 3B Nolan Arenado out of the lineup. OF Alec Burleson and INF/OF Brendan Donovan are carrying the team right now. They combined to go 5-for-7 with 2 RBIs Monday. C Willson Contreras also drove in a run in his first action in nearly 2 months.

Braves at Cardinals projected starters

RHP Reynaldo Lopez  vs. RHP Kyle Gibson

Lopez (5-2, 1.57 ERA) makes his 14th start. He has a 1.08 WHIP, 2.8 BB/9 and 9.2 K/9 through 74 1/3 innings.

  • Last start: Win, 5 IP, 0 ER, 7 H, 1 BB, 6 K in 7-0 home victory Wednesday against Detroit Tigers
  • 1 career relief appearance vs. St. Louis: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 2 K
  • Home/road splits: 6 road starts: 2-2, 2.14 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, 9.9 K/9 vs. 7 home starts: 3-0, 1.11 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, 8.6 K/9

Gibson (5-2, 3.44 ERA) makes his 15th start. He has a 1.20 WHIP, 3.3 BB/9 and 7.9 K/9 through 83 2/3 innings.

  • Last start: Win, 7 IP, 0 ER, 2 H, 1 BB, 6 K June 14 in 3-0 victory at Chicago Cubs; missed his last start due to back tightness
  • Last 5 starts vs. Braves: 2-1, 4.91 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, 35 K in 29 1/3 IP

Braves at Cardinals picks and predictions

Braves 5, Cardinals 3

I look for the Braves to rebound here. They had a lot of hard contact right at defenders or that just missed leaving the park Monday. Gibson had a great outing in his last start but missed time to the bereavement list and the back issue. I look for his control to evade him.

You can take the BRAVES -140 here, or you can make it interesting. Lopez hasn’t allowed an ER in his last 2 starts and has allowed more than 2 ER in just 1 of his 13 starts.

Take BRAVES ML + REYNALDO LOPEZ UNDER 2.5 EARNED RUNS ( +100 ).

Run line/Against the spread

I’m pegging this to be a multi-run win for Atlanta, but I personally want more than +125 to incur the risk of it on the road. They’re just 19-20 ATS on the road this year.

Instead, I’m taking BRENDAN DONOVAN OVER 1.5 H+R+RBI ( +110 ). Donovan has an 8-game hitting streak, and he has an RBI in 7 straight. He hit 5th in the order Monday and is clearly on another level right now.

BetMGM Sportsbook is offering an any sport 33% odds boost token that would make that prop bet +146.

I don’t have as good of a feel on this one as I do the aforementioned wagers. It was 98 degrees and humid as all get out at the ballpark Monday, and the sides only mustered 7 runs with a couple of iffy starters. It’s slated to be 93 degrees with a 7-mph wind blowing out toward left-center. It could go either way, but after Monday’s showing, LEAN UNDER 8.5 ( -115 ).
