- The grand opening of the Centennial Wheel got off to a rocky start Friday night, when a power outage briefly halted the running of the new Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier.
Shortly after 8 p.m., Navy Pier officials confirmed that a power outage had caused the wheel to stop. Electricians were working to fix the issue and get people down, a spokesperson said, with the priority of keeping people comfortable and getting them down.
Just after 8:30 p.m., the wheel began moving again. A light show was previously scheduled for 9 p.m. Friday and is expected to go on as planned.
We couldn't have made this up if we tried.
