FEATURE: CRAIG WESCOTT
Craig Wescott transformed the Branson skyline in 2016.
Wescott, the CEO and co-owner of The Track Family Fun Parks, relocated Chicago’s famed Navy Pier Ferris wheel to the Branson Missouri. Now he has his sights set on another new attraction for the 76 strip in 2019.
Wescott paid almost $2 million for the ferris wheel, but invested $4 million in the total experience when all was said and done. Decorated with 16,000 LED lights the Branson Ferris Wheel has become a Branson landmark and popular destination for tourists.
In this interview, we discuss Craig’s upbringing and his path to being owning some of Branson’s top attractions.
