“Great view and a bit expensive. ”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

Great for out of town guests, but a little pricey for what it is. If you happen to catch it on a nice day, it makes for some beautiful views of the Sound and the Seattle skyline.

“Yeah well, I guess another gotta do it.”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

Expensive,Great view! Took some great pics. Spend your money on food! Choice between Space Needle and Great Wheel ? Flip a coin! Or, let your wife go and take the money you saved and buy oysters. Preferably from a deck watching her ride.

“Relaxing way to see the view”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

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.

“Day or night just not in the rain”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

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!

“Nie Ride Even If You Have Acrophobia”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

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.
