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.
