“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

Great view!

We went there around dusk before the sun set in order to see the view both at dusk and night. The queue wasn't too long. Highly recommended.

“Beautiful view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We were fortunate to have beautiful weather and had the best view from the great wheel. And since it was not crowded, the attendant gave us a couple extra turns. My son and I loved it!

“Good Family Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013 via mobile

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!

“Not great”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013 via mobile

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....

“Great sunset attraction”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

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.
