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.
