We enjoyed our ride on the Seattle Great Wheel. We did think it was a little pricey, but the views of Elliot Bay were gorgeous.

This was definitely worth it. It’s pricey if you’re with a big group but for couples it’s not too bad. You go around plenty of times to get nice photos and relax.

In my opinion it's kind of overpriced, but if you got the money to drop and want a good view. Go for it. I prefer Kerry park for free though.

We've been here since I got out of the Army in 2005 but I haven't really played tourist. With COVID keeping us close to home, I decided to finally check out some of the tourist hot spots. The thought of spending $50 for two adults and our two girls gave me pause since I read that you only go around three times but I figured to give it a go since we're all stir crazy. Lucky for us, we got to go around six times and the girls enjoyed the view and the ride. I took a star away because it was stuffy in there for us but other than that it was a nice experience though I don't plan to do that again.

On a spring afternoon walking along Seattle’s waterfront parallel to all the freeway construction work, we noticed a Ferris wheel off to our right at the end of pier 57 past all the restaurants and 50 foot-cedar totem pole. Built in 2012 at a cost of $20 million, it weighs 170,000-pounds, and at 175 feet is the tallest Ferris wheel on the West Coast, it also extends 40 feet out over Elliott Bay. It has 42 climate-controlled gondolas, and one luxury VIP gondola, which has red leather seats and a glass floor. It takes 4 minutes to make one revolution and there are three revolutions in the ride. Unfortunately, we did not have time to wait for a ride, but will be back next time we are in town. TIP: Buy your tickets on line to save time.:
