Pike Ferris Wheel Reopens With ‘Light the Night’ Celebration

Release Date: 2017-09-25

Date nights and night owl shopping at the Pike Outlets are about to get a lot brighter now that construction on the Ferris wheel is complete. Celebrate the reveal of the colorful new wheel at the “Light the Night” event when it reopens Thursday evening, September 28.

More than 2,000 LED lights now adorn the 90-foot attraction originally built in 2005 to recreate the feel of the early 1950’s waterfront amusement park. Along with the roller-coaster-inspired pedestrian bridge and carousel ride, the Ferris wheel is a historic and defining element of The Pike.

“The Ferris wheel at The Pike Outlets is a beloved icon of the downtown waterfront area where hundreds of families enjoy the ocean and city views from the top of the ride,” said Morgan Erickson, property manager of The Pike Outlets, in a statement. “We are excited to see the colorful LED lighting that will give the wheel a modern look to complement the new shopping retailers at The Pike Outlets. We hope it remains an exciting attraction for locals and Long Beach visitors.”
