The Pacific Wheel has become an icon on the Southern California coastline and is regularly featured in film, TV shows, and daily newscasts in the Southland. The Park accommodates special lighting requests to celebrate holidays, special occasions, and to bring awareness to our partners and community-focused organizations. The Wheel’s 174,000 LED lights are mounted on the Ferris wheel’s structure, including the 40 spokes and two hubs. The world’s only solar-powered Ferris wheel’s lighting system features 16.7 million color value combinations while the programming and display software presents imaging up to 24 frames per second to display dynamic, custom, computer-generated lighting entertainment. The eco-friendly, enhanced LED lighting provides 81 percent greater energy savings than most Ferris wheel’s traditional incandescent bulbs.
