Another clear day and we saw forever. Bit pricey to ride - goes around 3 times. The Gondolas are clear on all sides and air-conditioned.

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!!!

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 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.

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.
