OCEAN CITY, Md. (WJZ) — If you’re heading to Ocean City, you may notice one of the ferris wheels is no longer there.

Last month, the Town Council told Trimper Rides the Ferris wheel violates a zoning code going over the property line. They called it a safety hazard, so the company was forced to start taking the wheel down, piece by piece.

It took about five days to complete. The amusement park estimates it will cost more than $100,000 to move the Ferris wheel. No word on whether Trimpers will try to bring the attraction back next year.

Correction: In an earlier version of this story we used a photo of another ferris wheel in Ocean City, the Jolly Rogers Giant Wheel. That ferris wheel remains along the boardwalk. We apologize for this error.
