“You can see for a mile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

We rode the Great Wheel on New Year's Day 2014 and it was a great way to start the year. The views are stunning. You can see all the boats and ships in the water and all of the surrounding landmarks. We did not have to wait long at all. It seems like holidays have less waiting time. Friends went on Christmas Eve and there was no wait. The enclosed cars make it a better ride for those who are afraid of heights.

“What fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

The enclosed cars made this a great ride, even on a day with light rain. The views in all directions make this a "must see" when in the Seattle area. Certainly a much better experience for us than the Space Needle.

“Nice views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

One can see the entire seattle skyline from the wheel. It takes you three rounds. The line moves really fast and the crew keep you occupied when standing in the line. There are premium seats available and the difference is leather seats and glass see through at the bottom. It definitely when it stops and is not like Singapore great wheel where you can walk inside.

“Some very nice view in this brief ride”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

Despite the rain we still had a good time and were able to see the bay and downtown Seattle. I am sure we should have seen the Olympics and Mt. Rainer on a clear day, but it was still fun.
