My family and I are avid vacationers frequently traveling to the beach in the summer. We had heard that dad's rode free on the skywheel on father's day and decided that was they day we were going. My family, consisting of 3 adults and a two year old all went down to the boardwalk around 330pm. There was only a short line (it would have moved faster but the attendants were having trouble ringing up the discounts). We ended up paying for only 2 on us...children 3 and under are free! It is a little pricey but where can you ride on an air conditioned ferris wheel?!? The all glass enclosure allowed for a spectacular view and if you have a good camera awesome pictures. I would definitely recommend riding this at least once.we would like to go back and ride at night when it's lit up too.
