Go Behind The Scenes Of The Capital Wheel's Construction

National Harbor's rather enormous observation wheel/adult carnival ride is on track to open imminently, so the engineering team at Cianbro have given folks a probably dated update with the construction video above. The video looks like it was shot on the cloudy day that they attached some of the gondolas last month, but it also gives a more in-depth view of the construction. Additionally, the video hints that the LED lights which will make the wheel even more visible from the highway have already been attached. Stay tuned to this space as an opening date for the wheel (which is ostensibly opening later this month) has not yet been announced.
