As mentioned earlier, someone bought the Santa Monica Pier Ferris Wheel on e-Bay.
Grant Humphreys bought it for $132,400, the high-bid among five competing for it and a total of 35 offers. He is the CEO of Humphreys Real Estate Investments in Oklahoma City which specializes in walkable communities (whatever that is). At this time, he has no immediate plans for it. Perhaps, he will put it at one of his communities, or, I'd like to see it remain somewhare on Route 66.
May 4th will be the last day of operation for this Ferris Wheel and all rides will be FREE that day. The pier hopes to have the new $1.5 million one up and running by May 22nd.
