Symbolic Video: The Wonder Wheel Turns in the Wind in Winter

December 2nd, 2008 · 1 Comment

Frankly, we liked our rides on it better in summer, but there is something evocative and moving about the wheel just turning. Captain Nemo who shot the vid swears there was no one in the park operating the wheel and that the cross that is placed atop it every holiday season is already there.

    That’s wonderful, I never noticed the Wheel moving in the winter before. I have heard the wind making beautiful music through the Astroland Tower in the winter. Thanks for the video!
