It was something to do. Enjoyed the view. Needs to be a little longer ride for the cost. Allow us to see over the harbor and river. Nice view.

Decided to take a ride on the Ferris wheel. It’s $15 for about a 15 minute ride. Worth the view if you’ve never done it.

Bait and switch
Be careful of the VIP experience. It is a bait and switch. They advertise that you go to the front of the line.

This ride is well worth going on. Enclosed cages cut wind and weather. Very little rocking as the ride goes around.
