Long Description:
The Island is a new entertainment and retail center that opened in late June, 2013. At the time the photos were taken construction was in its final stages. GPS coordinates from the closest accessible point outside the construction area at the time. From the center's web page about the wheel:

Towering 200 feet-tall, the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel sits at the foot of the most visited National Park in the United States. As the center piece of The Island in Pigeon Forge, it stands as one of the tallest attractions east of the Mississippi!

Opening Summer 2013, the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel will give riders an unparalleled view of the world famous Smokies in all glass gondolas that seat up to 8 guests. So bring your family to experience Pigeon Forge like never before and take an aerial tour of one of our nation’s treasures. The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel is open from 10 a.m. to 12 a.m. daily
