Do they still have the Big Wheel inside the Toys 'R' Us store?

I'm not sure, but I'd like to take this opportunity to say FUCK Manhattan and praise the outer boroughs.

Thank you.

Wouldn't it be great if New York was still called New Amsterdam,and still was dutch land, I bet they'd have coffeeshops. And all the other uber-dutch things.

Why are you asking about NY? The big wheel wasn't exclusive to NY...

Oh trust me, there's no shortage of coffeeshops in NY. Whether they're any good or not is another question, though. I wouldn't know because I don't drink coffee.

I don't think having a Dutch name would make the place any more Dutch... my hometown is called New Berlin, and it's quite not German.

It's the first place that i ever saw it so i assumed it was, the stores in England (that i have been to) are tiny compared to the one in NY and i was just surprised to see a big wheel inside a building

I'd really love to go to the U.S. for the MASSIVE space alone (related to everything).

It has its pluses and negatives. I don't miss having to drive everywhere. And it sucks growing up in suburbs and having to rely on your parents to drive you anywhere you want to go. But I do love having lots of space and my parents had a really nice yard.

That is just crazy, i'd better add "go on the big wheel" to my things to do before i die list. Are they all quite that big when inside?

Zeall, by the way, go to Minnesota sometime. Go to the Mall of America. There's not only a Ferris Wheel, but there's a Roller Coaster... inside the building. It's an entire theme park.

Last time I remember being near that Toys R Us, it was still there. That was within the past year. I can't imagine them getting rid of it.

That sound cool, i may do that when i'm older and earning more than i am now

although what i'd really like to do is go to one of those awesome theme parks in Florida and just ride everything as much as i can!

There's one big theme park in FL, Disneyworld, and it's not that great. There are many better theme parks than that. I really want to go to the one in Ohio.

I wouldn't go to Disneyworld anyway, i'd just like to go where there are loads of rollercoasters. I especially liked the ride called Air at Alton Towers where when you get on, the seats lift backward so you aree facing down when the ride sets off, it's hard to explain but a quick google image search would show you it :)

we've got something like that in Quebec City, but it's not that great. Olny one roller coaster, hooked to the ceiling/walls, hardly any floor support, and no inversion. laaaaaame, actually.
