Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park

When the late Constantinos Dionysios Vourderis—otherwise known as Deno—bought the Wonder Wheel in the early 1980s, he fulfilled a longtime promise to his wife: he’d vowed on more than one occasion to purchase the Ferris wheel for her as a wedding present, so everyone could see how much he loved her. Today, the Vourderis family continues to run the 400,000-pound landmark and its namesake park, which boasts 17 kiddie rides and five for adults.
