Where in St. Louis am I?
Last week's Monday Mystery is indeed the Colossus ferris wheel at Six Flags over Mid-America. About 20 minutes west of downtown St. Louis on Interstate 44, Colossus stands 18 stories high (~180 feet). It is currently the tallest ferris wheel in any amusement park. At night, Colossus puts on a light show with over 2200 lights and can easily be seen by drivers on the old Route 66 (I-44) as they pass. On a clear day, a rider at the top of Colossus can see 20 miles of Ozark skyline, a ride well worth the visit.
