Loved the ride and views. The ride is very smooth, did not swing or swag, so it is great from small children.

This ferris wheel is especially beautiful at night. A perfect photo spot . We enjoyed the giant ferris wheel just sitting at the nearby outdoor cafe. There is also an ice rink there in Fall and Winter. Perfect for family and couples. Highly recommended.

This Ferris Wheel is not too shabby! I prefer going on it at twilight when the lights of the center come on. It add to the overall ambience of the ride.
