SF’s Ferris Wheel Shuts Down Again
After sitting unused for 7+ months, then being open for about a month, Skystar will need to shut down starting Sunday, November 29th as part of San Francisco’s move to the Purple tier which means that attractions like ferris wheels must close.
The SkyStar Observation Wheel features 36 fully enclosed, climate-controlled gondolas that hold up to six passengers each. Gondolas are private and not shared with other customers outside of your party.
ANNOUNCEMENT: SkyStar Observation Wheel will temporarily cease operations as of Sunday, Nov 29, due to rising COVID cases. You can reschedule for a future date at https://t.co/ii5rLsFUCo. We look forward to welcoming you aboard soon! In the meantime, stay safe & healthy. pic.twitter.com/Ez6QW2gltb
