Wheel of Fortune’s Wheelmobile, the show’s promotional vehicle, will be at Harrah’s Metropolis Riverfront Event Center in Metropolis, Ill., this Saturday and Sunday from 1-5 p.m.
Viewers who are interested in being contestants on an upcoming episode are invited to attend. Fans will have the opportunity to fill out an application, have their names drawn at random to play a simulated version of the game onstage, win unique prizes and be evaluated as potential contestants for the broadcast version of the show.
Staff members from the Wheel of Fortune promotions team will begin handing out applications one hour before each show begins. Searches will be held at 1 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m., with each show lasting about an hour. Everyone who attends the event will be able to submit an application. Participants will be selected to come to the stage and audition via a random draw.
Parking will be available inside Harrah’s parking lot at no cost. Applications will be distributed within the Mississippi Room of the Riverfront Event Center. The Wheelmobile event will take place in the remainder of the Riverfront Event Center.
