The Great Wheel has an amazing waterfront location beside the Seattle Aquarium and steps away from Pike's Place. The cost was $45 US for 3 adults. We then queued for the wheel and were taken to a space for a group picture. The group picture was offered for sale at the end of the ride with the group photo-shopped in front of a climate controlled enclosure that seats six to eight people.

We enjoy ferris wheels for the views and for the thrill you feel when the wheel is rotating. The Seattle Great Wheel offers great views in a climate controlled environment but there is no thrill what so ever.

If you are visiting Seattle and have any sense of adventure, the Great Wheel is a must!
The line was not long and the views of Seattle and Puget Sound are phenomenal!
I recommend you try to get on it at sunset. What beauty!

Going into this I thought; “Heck, just another Ferris wheel.” But what I got was totally unexpected. Although it is a little pricey, the views are spectacular, especially late in the day when the sun is over the sound. There were 7 of us and no one felt unsafe or unsecure. We all fit in one car and were very comfortable. Here are a couple of tips: buy your tickets online before you go and avoid the ticket line; try to be in the first or second car, you’ll be higher up as they load & unload the cars. All in all a very good experience.

I went with my niece, nephew, husband, and their parents. The kids loved it. It was a beautiful day and we had a clear view of the city and surrounding areas. Definitely recommend for people with kids.
