To begin your SCHEELS adventure, stop by the 65-foot Ferris wheel inside the store. With 16 cars, you can ride this Ferris wheel for $1. Once the fun begins, you’ll enjoy a 10-minute ride with a complete bird’s-eye view from the top of the Ferris wheel.


Aquarium at Johnstown SCHEELS

Since we added a 65-foot Ferris wheel, we went ahead and took it to the next level with a 16,000-gallon aquarium as our grand entrance when you walk through the doors. Our aquarium features saltwater species, coral reef, and is maintained by full-time staff of scuba divers to feed the fish daily.
