This was super expensive. $50 for a family of 4. The windows were fogged up so we couldn’t even see anything out of them. There was someone cleaning the windows on the inside but didn’t bother to wipe the vents down which is what I’m sure everyone touched bc it was freezing in there. Don’t waste your money!!

They cleaned the inside of the cars after each ride but not the vents and since each unit is climate controlled there was a lot of condensation on outside of each car. I will say the the views are great. the ride is so smooth you can't tell when it starts or stops--just that it's moving again. However, one time is all you will ever need to do

Buy your tickets in advance is the first thing to do so you do not have to stand in line. I forget the young lady's name who helped us but she was kind enough to explain the whole outfit. There is a small snack bar on the premises so be sure to get a glass of wine for the ride. We enjoy these rides when we get the chance, like in Paris and Seattle. I do not recall either of those having wine available though!

The mini golf is not a good experience. To start, the woman that you pay to play is very unfriendly. When I tried to pay, she rudely let me know that it was a card only establishment and cash was not accepted. What kind of business doesn't accept cash? After I paid with my credit card, we went out to the course. It was at this point that I felt very ripped off. The price was 15.99 to play. The course was in horrible shape. Aside from all the debris on most of the holes, the carpet on a lot of the holes were well worn, faded, and torn. It certainly was not worth anywhere near the cost to play.

The sky wheel first of all is overpriced. Went around 4 times with 2 adults and a kid it was almost 70$ we went at night so we really couldn’t see anything anyway. Stopped near the top and I thought it was normal until the A/C cut out, and the radio. I’m sure the help call wouldn’t have work at this point, so I’m not sure it’s safe. Additionally the people in front of us seemed to want off after the first round, making this more sketchy. I wouldn’t do this again.

My family & I have ridden the Sky Wheel many times and for us the views never get old. Latest visit was over the July 4th holiday. My daughter & her 7 year old went with me. Every time they visit my Granddaughter insists we ride the Sky Wheel. Upon arrival we were able to immediately buy our tickets and only had a five minute wait to get on the ride. The Sky Wheel stands approximately 200 feet tall. The views from the top provide spectacular views of Pier Park, the City Pier, the Gulf and the surrounding area. The cabs are air conditioned making for a must needed break from the beach. They also have an 18 hole mini golf course and a rope climbing area on site. Open daily. Competitively priced. Plenty of parking. Located directly across from Dave & Busters in the middle of Pier Park.

My wife and I rode the SkyWheel Ferris Wheel at Pier Park at sunset. The price was a little on the high side, but the views of the sun setting over the Gulf of Mexico were worth it! The gondola was comfortable and climate-controlled which is a must. If you’re at Pier Park at sunset, definitely consider taking the wheel up!

If you plan on riding the skywheel in PCB try to time it out to be on it during sunset! The views of the sunset up top of the Ferris wheel are absolutely stunning! Crew at the skywheel greeted us with smiles and were friendly. Only thing is I wish the photo packages were a bit cheaper. I probably would have bought ours if they had been more affordable. Overall a great experience

My husband and I arrived around 4 on a Thursday. There was only 1 couple in front of us to purchase tickets.

There was no line to get on the wheel and we were able to board the wheel very quickly. The ride is air conditioned, which is a good thing. It seems to hold about 4 -6 people. There is an emergency button you can push if you want to come down and get off. Or if an emergency actually happens.

I think we went around a full 3-4 rotations, which was plenty for me. The view from the top is fantastic. You can see for miles. I think this is one of those things you should really do while in Panama City. It is fairly unique and you get some very good photos from up there.

Nice experience, great view of west end of PCB. Highly recommend timing your visit around sunset, makes for a beautiful site. Each of our visits provided 4 rotations (allows for people to change their seat and view perspective).

We have gone several times with different nieces and nephews and they have all enjoyed.
