“OK ride”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

What can I say, it's a Ferris Wheel. Took some pictures from the top. Nice view. Kids wanted to go on it and they like it.

“A must see for Seattle”
Reviewed 28 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Not too pricey, and you get a great view of the city and the sea. It's worth it, but it is a little short.

“Great Views (weather permitting)”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

This is a fun experience on a nice day. The cars are comfortable and air-conditioned, and the wheel slowly rotates as you get great views of Seattle, Elliot Bay and the Olympic Peninsula. If you go mid-day, be prepared to wait on a long line.

“Round and round 3 times”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

The line was short and we got into a car very quickly on a weekend. The cars are temperature controlled and comfortable. You go around 3 times and you get a great view that you would otherwise not get. The price was good and a fun diversion.

“Great fun and excellent views”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

I've been on the Great Wheel three times now and thoroughly enjoyed each. The wheel makes three full revolutions plus part of another whilst people are being unloaded and loaded. This is about right to enjoy the tremendous city and sea views. Sunset particularly is spectacular. The carriages are air conditioned, comfortable, stable and visibility out of them is excellent. You can swap seats for different views without crazy swinging of the carriage. One warning for families with small children, my youngest daughter was a little scared of being so high up in a mostly glass carriage, however it was a short enough ride that it wasn't an ordeal. I would recommend giving it a go. One point off because it is a bit spendy especially for a family.
