Johnstown Ferris Wheel
Did you know that the Johnstown SCHEELS has its very own Ferris wheel? A ride on the 65-foot Ferris wheel is the best way to start your SCHEELS adventure. The SCHEELS Ferris wheel has 16 cars and costs only $1 for a ride. Once the fun begins, you’ll enjoy a 10-minute ride with a complete bird’s-eye view from the top, a great way to plan your shopping adventure.
Although the Ferris wheel is tough to beat, the 16,000-gallon aquarium offers vibrant colors to our grand entrance. The SCHEELS aquarium features freshwater species, coral reef, and is maintained by full-time staff of scuba divers to feed the fish. Looking at all the beautiful colors and species is a great activity for a rainy or chilly day!
The wildlife mountain is a sight to see. The 22-foot tall wildlife mountain is the center focal point of the Johnstown SCHEELS store. Weight 28,000 pounds, the wildlife mountain features 220 taxidermy-preserved animals like grouse, ringtail cats, armadillos, red fox, and more. This is a great opportunity to teach your young kids about new animals—just use your smartphone to look up fun facts about the animals featured and start learning!
