I took my nephew (2) and cousin (8) on for the first time. I was thinking the 2 year old would be afraid and I was wrong. He loved it, and wanted to go again

This is a very nice, large ferris wheel with a great view of the ocean strip. It was rather expensive for the short ride but it was def. worth doing once just to experience it. Don't go if you are afraid of heights!!
