Foundation Pouring Starts Thursday for Skyvue Wheel

 

A planned giant observation wheel gets its physical start Thursday morning near Mandalay Bay.

The foundation begins to take shape for SkyVue, which would be the largest observation wheel in the Western Hemisphere and third largest in the world if completed. It is scheduled for a July 2013 opening.

More than 100 cement trucks will fill the foundation throughout the morning. Located across from Mandalay Bay, SkyVue would tower 500 feet above the famed Las Vegas Strip and feature 32, 24-person gondolas and offer two HD LED multimedia displays at the center of the wheel, each measuring 50,000 square feet.

The event begins at 6 a.m. at 3951 Las Vegas Blvd. South.
