Loved the ride and views. The ride is very smooth, did not swing or swag, so it is great from small children.

This ferris wheel is especially beautiful at night. A perfect photo spot . We enjoyed the giant ferris wheel just sitting at the nearby outdoor cafe. There is also an ice rink there in Fall and Winter. Perfect for family and couples. Highly recommended.
