The NPS announced this morning that national parks will be featured each day this week on the “Wheel of Fortune.” The show will feature park-related props, puzzles, prizes, and photography on episodes airing from today through Friday.
Now in its 28th season, “Wheel of Fortune” is the longest running syndicated game show in U.S. television history. It averages 11 million viewers each night and the show’s online Wheel Watchers Club has 5.7 million members.
Footage of parks will be constantly displayed on a large screen behind the contestants throughout the week. Long time hosts Pat Sajak and Vanna White will end Tuesday’s show with some NPS history.
NPS concessioners provided the week’s prize packages. Players will spin the wheel in hopes of winning trips to Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Yosemite, Glacier, Isle Royale, and Denali National Parks.
