It’s wheely happening. The KC Wheel has officially announced it’s opening this November. That announcement included another surprise — new renderings of surrounding attractions. Let’s take a closer look.
Perusing the pics
Renderings show a colorful ticket booth next to an outdoor bar aptly named “The Wheel House,” which will offer street food + drinks. We also see the Pennway Putt mini golf course with its 16 holes.
The KC Wheel will be $17 for adults, $12 for kids. Prices for its companion attractions haven’t been released, but we do know that the total space will span six acres; and the KC Wheel will be 50 meters tall + have 36 enclosed, climate-controlled gondolas (with one VIP gondola). Each will reach 150 ft.
Four more districts
Here are the others :
At the center of Pennway Point, this food hall will:
- Be 6,000 sqft
- Seat 200+ people
- Host four eateries
You can’t build an entertainment district without a sports section — not in KC anyways. It will host:
- Two outdoor stages
- A winter ice skating rink
- Private suites
Beef & Bottle Steakhouse
Think of this restaurant as the adults-only district. Grown ups can groove with:
- The Funk House, an elevated sports bar
- Elevated burgers + premium steaks
Yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like. It will:
- Be managed by the Lumi Neon Museum
- Showcase neon signs from KC’s past
What if Pennway Point added more attractions?
If they did, Editor Charmaine votes for a dog park. That section of town is lacking a dog space, and a KC-themed puppy play area would make for a howling good time.
What else would be a great addition? Let us know and you may be featured in a future newsletter.
