“Great views and pictures”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

We love the new addition to PF. The wheel was great for views and pictures. It is only something to do twice. Once during the day and once at night.

“Not the greatest view in January”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

I agree with the poster who reported that you saw a lot of construction. The ride is rather expensive. $24.54 for 2 seniors. I did see a coupon for pizza, drink and 4 tickets to the wheel for $39.99. The wheel goes around 6 times, so for us, about $2.00 a revelution.

“Pleasant suprise”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Loved the Wheel! GeneralIy, I don't like ferris wheels but this "Wheel" was ok. We got there just in time to see the sunset and watch Pigeon Forge light up for the night. The gondola was enclosed, heated, and very comfortable

“The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

This is the center piece of a new shopping place in Pigeon Forge, TN called The Island. It's just like the wheel at Myrtle Beach which I rode last summer. Terrific experience. I rode this one at night. Beautiful views. Not too many shops, yet, but more opening all the time. Arcade and kids rides.
