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. Put Seattle Great Wheel into our Seattle tour site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Seattle.

  • The Seattle Great Wheel is worth a spin! On a nice Sunday afternoon, the line only took a few minutes. The attraction is reasonably priced considering each party gets their own compartment. The ride is smooth and the views are lovely. You get at least three full spins. I would definitely ride the Great Wheel again!
  • This was our 3rd trip to the Big Wheel. Out of town guests really enjoy it. Plus so much to do while there. Fun to walk the board walk and discover all the shops and restaurants. Indoor Carousel too. Great downtown place for photos as well. Enjoy!💞
