“Let's go for a spin”
The Seattle Great Wheel was built in less than a year, but its story goes back much further than that. Seattle businessman Hal Griffith had envisioned a Ferris wheel in the city for nearly 30 years, but it wasn't until he realized he could build one on his own pier that his dream became a reality. The Seattle Great Wheel opened to the public on June 29, 2012. Since then, it has become an icon of the city and a destination for tourists and locals alike.
I'm not going to say that the wheel is total waste of money, but I'll say this - it's a cheaper, better option for a great view than the Space Needle. Of course, this thing is located nowhere near downtown, so you really need to *want* to visit it in the first place.
It goes around three times. It is $14, so a little pricey. I think it is worth the experience. I went during the night, still a great view of the city. It does shake a little bit while at the top. Would do it again!
Great ride on the wheel. $14 is kinda steep to pay for the ride you get, but hey, it's a touristy thing, so I expected it. Great views of the city, air conditioned too!
Very awesome! The view was great. It's easy to find, the parking around it is cheap. If you're making a day of the seafront then this should definitely make your list.
A bit price for only getting to go around 3 times, but we found it worth the experience.
Was n ot impressed. Way too much money for a ticket and we were last on first off, so our ride was less than five minutes.
