It was worth every penny. Was on vacation and had planned on spending the money on it and after reading about it here on Tripadvisor, wasn't shocked by the price for the 4 times around. My kids loved every minute and were amazed by the views. Would recommend riding it during the daytime (can see a lot more) and then just looking at it at night time for the LED lights. From there I would recommend walking on the boardwalk and have a nice relaxing walk by the beach.

This ride is really high but since you are in a gondola, it was not terrifying. The view was amazing and it would a good opportunity to take pictures of the area.

The skywheel was a little pricy considering you get in and go around 4 times. It was worth doing one time, but I doubt I'll ever do it again.

Great view over the ocean for sure. But half of the ride you are facing the city which is not a great view. It is very comfortable and a little scary for me at least.
