The Buffal-O Ferris Wheel at Riverworks is opening this weekend. It's been a long time coming for the ride, which was supposed to open last year. It's one of the many activities that Buffalo Riverworks, located at 359 Ganson Street in Buffalo's First Ward offers for adventure-seekers and families.

Bill Casale, General Manager of Buffalo Riverworks told WGRZ,

We're finally ready, the wheel is open, everything around it is open, we have the staff to accommodate the guests. We have a wraparound deck and new terrace in conjunction with the ferris wheel, we've added a few new little kid rides, we have gondolas, we'll do gondola rides this summer...there's an array of activities this weekend and throughout the summer.

Check out some pics I snapped of the Ferris wheel. You can also check out some of the other activities Riverworks will be offering this summer.

Riverworks has definitely transformed itself into an adventure destination in First Ward. There are kiddie ride, water activities, rock climbing, and zip lining. I had a chance to go on the zip line and it was terrifying (or maybe I'm just a chicken lol). The views were spectacular though. You can also enjoy the restaurant with outside seating to enjoy views of the river and a beer garden.
