We rode the Great Wheel when it was gray outside the clouds were beginning to lift from the tops of the Olympics. The line was not very long but the process was very different. I had expected the wheel to go around continuously. It amounts to three total revolutions with many stops before and afterwards. The views are amazing and it was expensive. Unlike the top of the Space Needle, it is one of those attractions, that you say to yourself, "Once is enough". It was enjoyable for the 15 minutes that we were on it but we probably won't go again.

My husband and I went on the Seattle Great Wheel on this Superbowl Sunday..so as everyone else was watching football there was a short line and we got a gondola to ourselves. It was fun! and we enjoyed seeing the sound, ships and mountains from a different perspective. The staff were personable and attentive. The Seattle Great Wheel is a nice addition to the waterfront.

I'm afraid of heights, but felt safe in the enclosed buckets of the ferris wheel. The views of Pacific Northwest water and mountains and the City of Seattle are amazing. Don't miss this attraction no matter how old or young you are b

We (2) friends rode this wheel one dark and cool weekday evening this past fall. No line to speak of, and a ride that was long enough but not too long. We did not have to share a gondola. It was fun to do once, but that was enough.
