A record-breaking Ferris wheel ride is planned at Navy Pier, and that means you could ride for free.

Clinton Shepherd, the park's operation manager, hopes to get into the Guinness World Records Book by riding the Ferris wheel for 48 hours. The current record for the longest marathon on a fairground or theme park attraction is 30 hours and 35 seconds.

Shepherd plans to board the Ferris wheel at 2:30 p.m. Friday. Fans of the Ferris wheel can hitch a ride with Shepherd for free overnight, from10 p.m. Friday to 10 a.m. Saturday and from 10 p.m. Saturday to 10 a.m. Sunday.
