We went on an overcast day. No line but be sure to get your pre-paid ticket back form the check in person. You will need it when you board. Fortunately I printed a second copy because they insisted they hadn't 't taken it. Finally I gave the guy my second copy. He was happy and we boarded. The cars are warm and you get a nice view of the Waterfront skyline. The Wheel moves slowly but it is ample time to see the sights. It is pricy for a big group, but it is a "must do" when visiting Seattle!

We decided to do this and try it

Very disappointing. Stop and start a few turns although we got a few extra turns because it was quiet and off season.

I think its the location that doesnt work. Only view that is spectacular is the sunset on the water....

I did the wheel with a group of friends on an early evening in June. The sun was just beginning to set and the view was stunning. We had fun but somehow it seemed a little anticlimactic as it rolled around slowly. I kind of like watching it from the street as much as riding on it.

This is a fairly new wheel and felt quite safe. As it was the off season we got more revolutions that advertised. The car was clean and offered excellent views from all directions.

A terrific addition to the Seattle waterfront and skyline. We got several more revolutions than advertised because it was not a peak time. The views of Seattle skyline and Harbor were terrific, despite the foggy weather. Enclosed car was clean and staff friendly and professional.
