This is a nice part of the Pigeon Forge skyline. The cabin is comfortable, enclosed and air conditioned. The windows get pretty foggy during the ride. I believe the ride was 10-15 minutes. We went around 3 full times and then stopped toward the top...More

Had a good ride when there was hardly anyone else on the Island. The Wheel does give you some great views, especially with the Christmas lights up at night. It was comfortable and the staff was friendly. It's just rather expensive for a group of...More

Ride it at nighttime, ride it in daytime. My wife, son, and I rode it multiple times and loved the views of the snowy mountains in the day and the city lights at night. Very comfortable, friendly staff and a nice, relaxing ride.

It takes about 3 minutes or so for one turn. The ride lasts about 10 minutes for 3 turns. The wheel is huge and the gondolas hold 4 people comfortably or 6 smaller people.
