ICON Attractions Awarded St. Louis Wheel Project in Historic Union Station
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — ICON Attractions has been selected by Lodging Hospitality Management (LHM) to operate The St Louis Wheel, a 200-foot tall observation wheel under construction at Union Station. The firm will also operate a carousel and other family-friendly attractions, all part of a $150-million entertainment complex in historic downtown St. Louis.
Union Station in St. Louis is a National Historic Landmark, once the busiest and largest train station in the world. Converted in the early 1980s, Union Station now features the stunning, four diamond St. Louis Union Station Hotel and The Grand Hall at Union Station. The Train Park at Union Station currently includes beautiful festival space – home to the Polar Express, food outlets, an outdoor plaza and fire and light show. The destination continues to flourish with the construction of the St. Louis Aquarium at Union Station, St. Louis Wheel, Carousel, Mini Golf, Ropes Course and Mirror Maze, all set to open in 2019.
