If you’re a big fan of Wheel of Fortune this thought has definitely entered your mind at some point. What is that wheel made of?!
I always thought maybe it was digital? Or just a decal? Not quite. It is an actual giant wheel that has 200 lights, 73 steel pins, and weighs 2,400 pounds!!! They do so many travel shows surely there must be more than one “wheel” right? Nope. There’s only one of them, so when the show goes on the road, they have to pack it up and bring it with them.
You know you’ll be thinking about this next time you watch.
