    Good deal. I always thought SPEED was a must-do ride while in Las Vegas.

    Yes there are two giant wheels planned. As for the balloon, the first one was destroyed in a windstorm. A petting zoo was to be installed during that time but never materialized. A replacement balloon came many months later, but it was under-used and the business folded. I was sad to see it go.
