“Let's go for a spin”
The Seattle Great Wheel was built in less than a year, but its story goes back much further than that. Seattle businessman Hal Griffith had envisioned a Ferris wheel in the city for nearly 30 years, but it wasn't until he realized he could build one on his own pier that his dream became a reality. The Seattle Great Wheel opened to the public on June 29, 2012. Since then, it has become an icon of the city and a destination for tourists and locals alike.
I'm not going to say that the wheel is total waste of money, but I'll say this - it's a cheaper, better option for a great view than the Space Needle. Of course, this thing is located nowhere near downtown, so you really need to *want* to visit it in the first place.
This was cool but if your choosing the space needle or this do the space needle. It was nice to walk along the bay and they let you go around 3 times but we went around 5. By the fifth we were ready to get off. But still cool views.
It goes around three times. It is $14, so a little pricey. I think it is worth the experience. I went during the night, still a great view of the city. It does shake a little bit while at the top. Would do it again!
Great ride on the wheel. $14 is kinda steep to pay for the ride you get, but hey, it's a touristy thing, so I expected it. Great views of the city, air conditioned too!
Very awesome! The view was great. It's easy to find, the parking around it is cheap. If you're making a day of the seafront then this should definitely make your list.
A bit price for only getting to go around 3 times, but we found it worth the experience.
Was n ot impressed. Way too much money for a ticket and we were last on first off, so our ride was less than five minutes.
