Celoron Phoenix Wheel

"The Phoenix Wheel"

Almost 60 years ago, the Celoron Amusement Park ride called “The Phoenix Wheel” was dismantled and moved away.  Find out where it was moved, what happened to it, and see a picture of it in action, by visiting our Member Pages.

This image is from an original postcard postmarked 1908, showing the wheel as it looked while at Celoron, New York.  It was taken by photographer L. Wayne Hofius, who had a studio in the park.
