Seattle has a variety of ways to enjoy it's modern cityscape and one of them is the recently opened Seattle Great Wheel. It is a giant Ferris wheel ride situated right on the Hudson Bay! It was designed to help with local economy but it's a treat for locals and visitors alike. With a seat in the little gondolas, you can have a spectacular view of Hudson Bay and Seattle during the day and the sea of city lights at night! 20 minutes of flying through the skies at a comfortable speed is sure to offer numerous picture-perfect moments along the ride. Definitely a one time visit at the least with the family because this place is also kid-friendly. VIP tickets with leather seating and glass flooring of the gondolas, take the experience up a notch. Don't forget the camera to take pictures you will treasure!

I thought this was an excellent attraction. The staff were super friendly and entertaining. The views were amazing. The pods were heated sufficiently and I must have gone at a quiet time because they said I would go around 3 times, but it ended up being 6 times!!! Thanks so much. Just wish the photo was a downloadable photo included with the price of the ticket. A must place to visit for a spectacular view....especially on sunset!!!
Breath taking sights! You can see all around you. And the staff is very friendly. Just hopefully, you're not afraid of heights. This goes up a ways... The only reason why a deduced a star is because I'm afraid of heights and my smart a$$ went by myself... The wheel went around 4 times. The 1st round, I was scared and was ready to hit the emergency button (it didn't help that I went on a windy day). But after feeling secure and looking at the scenery, I wasn't afraid anymore; I just enjoyed the clear skies and the sun on my face. Looking out into the sound and looking around the waterfront. :-) I may recommend you go with a trusted friend or a good idea for a date activity.
If you are not bothered by heights or carriages moving up and down, this is a fun and relaxing ride with magnificent views of the downtown Seattle area, including the Space Needle. It is also pretty inexpensive and the wait was not very long, especially for a weekend. We were lucky to ride this on a beautiful day. I would definitely go on this again.
This is one of the best ways to see all the sights besides the Space Needle. I was very happy with the ride, even though I am not the biggest fan of heights. I also didn't expect the ride to last as long as it did. The only complaint I have is that it got a bit hot in the cabin.
The views are great and they are very quick to get you aboard! A great experience! They take photos of you before you enter the Wheel available after for purchase. Fun for the whole family, unless you have a fear of heights of course!
