FEATURES
BFE's Aerial Tower ride is the only one of its kind in the world. Four safely designed cabins, each carrying up to 15 persons, rise slowly to a height of 120 feet, one of the highest observation points at the Fair. The cabin makes a complete turn before its slow descent, affording a panoramic viewof the Fair.
The 12,000 square foot area also features a unique Belgian taste sensation, the Bel-Gem Waffle or Gaufre (pronounced Go-fra). This waffle, from a special recipe, hundreds of years old, is layered with thick whipped cream and topped with fresh, sliced strawberries.
