Panama City's Skywheel ringing in the New Year in the sky

By  | 

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WJHG) -- Now that Christmas has come and gone, many people are making plans for New Years and some will be kicking 2019 off in the sky.

Officials with the SkyWheel held a lottery at the beginning of the month for people to claim their spots on the wheel as the clock strikes midnight.

After advertising the midnight flight, organizers drew names and contacted the lucky winners who will be starting their year off on another level.

However, they weren't able to contact all of the winners, so tickets are still available online for private gondolas or for individual riders.
