At 53 m (175 ft) tall, Seattle Great Wheel draws visitors to view the city. One ride takes you around the giant Ferris wheel three times, giving you ample opportunity to spot Mt. Rainier and Puget Sound in the distance, and to enjoy the sights below. Each gondola seats up to eight people, but each group receives a private gondola. One luxury gondola sports leather seats, a stereo system, and a glass floor for all-around views.

  • We were hesitant to spend the money and the time waiting for this attraction, but it was completely worth it! The views are unparalleled, and we found the experience to be relaxing and fun.  more »
  • A great concept not fully realized. The cars are small and dont fit many comfortably. The cost is high, and really not worth an hour of your day. Seattle is great try pike place market its at a higher...  more »

  • I take All my guests that visit the Seattle area to the Great Wheel. The view is gorgeous. I have never shared a cab with anyone except my own party. The height did scare my sister a bit. There is more than enough time on the ride. I also find this very relaxing after walking around a good amount of time. Visited Seattle for a NFL game and loved this attraction. We rode the wheel at night it was fairly priced and we stayed on for longer than they said which was nice. The sitting area was comfortable and felt safe as well. There are VIP areas with better seating and the view was amazing since it is right of the pier. Must ride.
  • One of the most popular places in Seattle. If you wanna take a look of entire Seattle, then should definitely do it from the great wheel. It is a great place where you can enjoy a fun ride. There are multiple eateries outside where you can have delicious meal and drinks. You can buy a ticket there or it can be booked online. We went straight to the wheel, and even though it was a weekend, it was not busy or crowded at all.
