This review is not about the ride, but the staff/operations. The ride offers 360 degree panoramic view of the beach/ocean - which is absolutely breathtaking!
The ground staff need some training. The woman at the ticket booth seems to be distracted and to issue tickets took 10 mins per person. There were 3 people ahead of us and took 30 mins. (no exaggeration) . There were 2 other woman trying to help her. so either she is not trained, or maybe the system suffered a glitch. The second delay was mandatory photo op! After that, 90% of the carts were empty and the staff was filling only one or 2 cart per every 6 rounds. It takes 12 mins for 6rounds (which is what one gets to experience), so waited another 45 mins before we could board. When we got down, the lines were circled on to the streets.

5 spins on this wheel is an enjoyable and relaxing ride. The price I thought was reasonable. The staff was pleasant.

The night view is worth it. We were offered but refused the pictures souvenir of the trip. Price per adult and children reasonable. There were only two taking the ride which limited the number of stops for loading and unloading. Otherwise the four rides provided a relaxful ride. Enclosed seats also were appreciated as the December weather is much colder than in the summer. Recommend as a good souvenir ... approximately 200 feet high .... and 42 seats speak for the height.

We had friends in town and decided to try out the Sky Wheel. I highly recommend booking / buying your tickets online. By doing so, you avoid the ticket line when you get there. You will have to pay to park nearby.

The ride is great and the pods are roomy. We went in the daytime and really enjoyed the views.

You HAVE to do this!!!! Even if you are afraid of heights (I am so scared of heights), this is well worth it!! The staff there are so very friendly, they will help put you at ease!! I almost didn’t do this and I am SO happy I didn’t chicken out!! The service from the staff is super amazing and they will answer any questions you have!! You may even see some dolphins too!! If you get the chance to go for the sunrise one on Sat morning- it is well with it (they do this a few times a month, you can view it in the schedule on their website). Yes it is early, but when I say you won’t regret it, I promise you won’t!! The views are so beautiful, you can get some great pics, and it’s just a very cool experience! I cannot say enough about the staff there, and the customer service they provide !! Really and truly you HAVE to go and do this!!

My Husband and I rode this for our first time yesterday afternoon. The ticket price is fair. We didn't have a wait to get on and that was really nice. It is a enclosed carriage that you sit in that is big and comfortable with air conditioning! Very clean. The views of course are amazing! We really enjoyed ourselves.

First of all, they need a cover/roof extended over the front of the line to the wheel. We were standing there for 30/40 minutes in the direct sunlight in the heat, and the wheel was not moving. There was a guy standing at the front of the wheel but had his back to us the whole time and wouldn't turn around. 40 minutes later, one of the customers in line cut through the ropes and demanded to know what was going on because the wheel wasn't moving and we were all there just standing there in the heat dripping sweat. It was only at that point that they told us the wheel was under maintenance....soooo were they just going to make us stand there all day and not tell us that???? Big waste of time. If they were just honest with us we wouldn't have been so mad, but they didn't want to tell us because they did not want to give us our money back. Boycott this place.
