“Great views of Centennial Park”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

The ferris wheel is 200 feet high or 20 stories. It has great views of the Atlanta skyline and Centennial Olympic Park. The price is close to fifteen dollars for adults and are enclosed in case you think it would be to cold. A nice addition to downtown Atlanta

“Low expectations fully achieved”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

My personal expectations were fully achieved. This is an oversized Ferris wheel with climate controlled cabins. It is also a shameless tourist attraction, complete with debuantes piling out of limosines to take selfies in front of the ride. That said I went with two children 12 and nine (his birthday) and they LOVED it. So my advice - if you are in Atlanta with kids; out on a romantic date or a member of a gorupo if vapid teens consider it. Otherwise, follow your instincts that say "just how great can the view 100 feet up be from the Tabernacle parking lot really be" and skip this one.

“Beautiful view of the area!”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

I took my seven year old as well as my nine year old nephew to the Skyview. They had such a wonderful time that I had to take them back the following night. The line moves fast and the view is absolutely amazing. Will definitely ride again!

“It's Fun To Do At Least Once”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

You have to experience the Skyview at least once. It's pricey for what you get. You go around three or four times and pay about $15 per person. If you are in the city and want a cool experience and want to see Atlanta from a different angle, take a ride on the Skyview. I get motion sick very easily and I did fine on it.

“Could have skipped it....”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

It looks great from the road as you are approaching, close parking if you don't park at the ride itself & the staff members were friendly. Overpriced to go 3 full times around (The reason the ride lasted as long as it did was due to the loading & unloading of people) It was Sunny & 55 & the cabin heated up quickly, air wouldn't work due to the fact that they only had the heat runny (couldn't switch to AC), but I was able to open emergency window per worker to cool it down. Same sentiment from my mother-inlaw & she enjoys most everything we do! The view of the area was nice! Its not an expensive outing, but really the worse $$$ I spent in a while. My 13 year old & her friend said they had fun!
