I'm pretty certain there aren't many stores that have rides inside of them. Obviously we have a whole amusement park inside a mall at the Mall of America, but there's a stand-alone store in Minnesota that also has a pretty sweet, hidden ride.

Ferris Wheel Hidden Inside a Minnesota Sporting Goods Store

You wouldn't know it from the outside that this place has a ferris wheel in it. It's a huge sporting goods store in the Twin Cities. The brand has store locations across the country but not all of them have the amenities that this location does.

The sporting goods brand we're talking about is a very popular one: Scheels!

Did you know that there's a location with a ferris wheel? I didn't either until my in-laws told me about it!

Sure enough, there's a ferris wheel inside the Eden Prairie location of Scheels.

Ferris Wheel Inside Scheels

While having a whole ferris wheel in your store is cool and all, that's not all! First of all, you can ride on this ferris wheel for $1 per person. How fun is that!

Second of all, there are other attractions in the Eden Prairie Scheels that I had never heard of in other Scheels locations before.

For example, they also have an aquarium at this location:

A mini indoor ice rink where you can test out hockey gear, and there's a candy factory!

That's just a few of the attractions at this location. Pretty insane.

What other stores in Minnesota have cool attractions like this? I'd love to hear about them! You can send me a message on our app.

I do also know that the REI in Bloomington has a whole rock climbing wall, which is awesome!
