“This place is printing cash!”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

I don't get it.....it's just a normal ferris wheel, but they want to charge you $15. to ride it...no way!! I'd rather save my cash for more Pike Chowder Company chowder!!!

“On a Clear Day”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

August 7th could not have been a more perfect day to ride to the top of the waterfront. Since it was for a birthday we bought the VIP package and had no wait at all (except for the queue at the ladies' loo). The sunny view of the expanse of the sound, complete with ferries gliding off, was delightful. Though the ride was only about 18 minutes, it was something we wouldn't have missed! The T-Shirts aren't bad, either...

“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.
