Lizzie and Owen ride the Wonder Wheel this week on Coney Island but first Lizzie wants her fortune told by the all-knowing Grandma’s Predictions. Owen goes first and gets an ominous warning about his life drastically changing, and Lizzie, well she doesn’t like what Grandma tells her… at all!
Grandma’s Predictions is real and can still be found under the Wonder Wheel on Coney Island today. She was placed there when the Wonder Wheel opened in 192o and has been telling fortunes every since. Her only vacation in 97 years was for a restoration after Hurricane Sandy flooding damaged her in 2012.
