Not sure why we didn't catch this last week, but two different news sources are reporting that two giant "Observation Wheels" are being planned for two Strip Sites.

Norm's Vegas Confidential reports thusly:
"Phil Ruffin's plans for the New Frontier site have been a well-kept secret -- until now. The announcement, I'm told, is still two months away, but the word's getting out.

Remember that massive Ferris wheel that was to be part of the Rio's expansion? Someone who saw the blueprints says the Mondo project, if that's the eventual name, will feature a Ferris wheel."

Yahoo! Biz Press Release reports thusly:
"Voyager Entertainment International, Inc., an entertainment development company, has reached an agreement with Centex Destination Properties to build an "Observation Wheel" on the Las Vegas strip at what is now the Westward Ho Hotel and Casino site. Located at 2900 Las Vegas Blvd. South, the 40-year-old property spans 15.2 acres and has nearly 800 rooms and 112,842-square-foot hotel-casino."

So whats the deal here? Has the Circus moved down the strip a coupla numbers and decided to double up on its spherical erections? Will there there be an advantageous camera angle where these two circular objects will form the testicles attached to the supremely prickable Stratosphere observation tower as it fucks the Southern Nevada Sky?

Stay tuned folks, this will only get weirder.

Fuck the Southern Nevada Sky? That is the best take on a story I have ever read.
