The wheel goes around three times and costs about 15 dollars. It is a miniature version of the London Eye. Very cool downtown attraction, you are in air conditioned glass pods. Very safe no rocking and you really don't feel it moving to much.

First of all I am incredibly afraid of heights! But this isn't scary. You are fully enclosed in a glass bubble. I've been day and night both are excellent. But if the weather was bad I would guess it wouldn't be great...no view....well worth the price!
Family friendly!

I am not one who like heights but I did enjoy the views from the Seattle Great Wheel. Had clear skies, which I understand are rare in Seattle. Great views of the Sound, Mt. Rainier, and the city. The cabins are mostly glass (or probably plexiglass) but there was enough visible structure visible around to help with the acrophobia.

No better way to follow up a good dinner than with a ride on the Great Wheel. While a bit pricy, the operators were friendly, the cars were clean and the ride was quiet and smooth. All that was missing was a lovely glass of wine! ;-)

This was a great attraction overlooking the waterfront in downtown Seattle. A bit costly for only 3 times around. It does slown down toward the top to view the city.
