“Loved it”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

2 adults and 4 kids(7yr old, twin 5 yr old, and a 2yr old) fit just fine and had a great ride!, nearby was letting off fireworks in the distance which was a added bonus! a lil over priced, but we had fun and the kids loved it!!

“Awesome Even on a Foggy Day”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

We got a coupon for a free ride from the hotel and decided to try it. It was a really foggy day so we were afraid we wouldn't see much but it was so cool being surrounded by the clouds and we still had some great views.

“Fun for a quick view of the beach”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

This is a fun stop for a unique view of the beach and boardwalk. Check on line or coupon books for a small discount before you go. The cars are fully enclosed which adds to the comfort and safety for the little ones.

“High price for the view”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

The skywheel is pretty cool sitting there on the boardwalk but it ends there. The price is extortion especially if you have a large party. The helicopter ride is cheaper and you see a whole lot more.

“Great view expensive price.”
Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

We went at dusk, hoping to see the lights and ocean. By the time we actually got going and at the highest point it had gotten to dark, so we couldnt see the ocean. The lights where nice, but it was no vegas. It was overpriced and ultimately felt it was a waste of money.
