In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Take your Valentine’s Day to new heights with this sweet offer from the SkyStar Wheel at The Banks

Hey Sweethearts, Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and this year you can take the romantic holiday to new heights with a sweet offer from the SkyStar Wheel at the Banks.

The 150-foot ‘mobile observation wheel’ is promising a wheel-y good time for lovebirds in February.

Their ‘Love Bird Package’ includes two tickets and Russel Stover chocolates for $24 (plus tax) for the 12-minute ride.

Sweethearts can also satisfy their sweet tooth because SkyStar officials say they’re partnering with local Dunkin’ Donuts franchisees to hand out their Valentine’s Day classic heart-shaped donuts.

While you’re giving your heart to your loved-one, Sprinkles, the Dunkin’ Donuts mascot will be on-hand beginning Feb. 8 at 5 p.m. to hand out the holiday-themed heart-shaped dessert along with a hot coffee or hot chocolate to riders while supplies last.

You can cash in on their sweet offer from Feb. 8 to Feb. 17.

Your relationship can soar to new heights in one of the wheel’s 36 climate-controlled gondolas that can holdup to 6 people.

Hey Cincy! We are taking your Valentine’s Day to new heights this year. Check out our Love Bird Package!❤️ 2 tickets…
