Took our two daughters at dusk and were treated to beautiful views of Puget Sound, the City and the Olympic Mountains. The attendant told us how the ride would work when we boarded and you generally get four full rotations for the price of admission...More

An absolutely non- scary ride with spectacular views of the city’s edge. Super cheap, very clean, and friendly staff. Lines moved quickly. Best time is mid morning

I can definitely say that I love riding big wheels whenever possible, and a sunset ride in Seattle was not to be missed. I’m very happy that I did it.

I would recommend going during the day instead of at night. Fun little activity but would’ve liked to go round a few more times

This attraction is EXPENSIVE. Overrated for price. Maybe offering off season discounts or family bundles would be nice.

Sorry for the late reply- I don't check this as often as I should. We drove downtown and parked in a garage near the Pike Place Market. The streets were very crowded; this was on a Saturday. There did not seem like a lot of... More

The gondolas are enclosed. I have seen children of all ages ride the Wheel. While you're there..don't miss Wings over Washington...a bit spendy...but worth it
