In its short time making an appearance at the fair, the giant Ferris Wheel has become a fan and photographers favorite.

The Great Big Wheel will return for its third straight Minnesota State Fair, it is the tallest traveling Ferris wheel in North America and rides will be available for $5 during the run of the Fair.

If you've seen the wheel, you know how big it is and just in case you have a problem finding it, it will be located at Randall Avenue and Cooper Street.

The 156-foot tall wheel has 36 enclosed gondolas each holding six people and is beautifully lit with more than a half-million LED lights.
