They call it "Great Big Wheel" - clever, right?!?

Minnesota State Fair officials just announced their new attractions for this summer's 'Great Minnesota Get-Together" and the Ferris wheel is the biggest addition, literally.  The ride carries people 15 stories high! It's 156-feet-tall and has 36 enclosed gondolas, which each carry six people. The Ferris Wheel costs $5 per ride and guarantees amazing views of the fairgrounds.

Other new attractions listed on the State Fair's website include:

• The Veranda, a new shop-eat-sit destination on the west side of Grandstand’s upper level merchandise and shopping area.
• NHL® Centennial Fan Arena in the Expo Place
• Dress A Sheep Contest
• Eco Experience – New Highlights
• New Kidway Ride – Clown Around ride
