The observation wheel on the Seattle waterfront takes riders more than 175 feet over Puget Sound, offering a new view of the Seattle waterfront and I really can't wait. I've always loved the Seattle waterfront since childhood and now one more reason to love it like a kid again! I couldn't think of a better way to end a day strolling, having dinner an drinks on the waterfront then climbing aboard one of the gondolas and rising high over the jewel of the northwest; our beautiful Emerald City.
Each gondola on the Great Wheel seats between 6 and 8 people and can be used year round because they have both air conditioning and heating. A number of VIP gondolas include glass bottoms, so riders can watch the view beneath their feet.
Each ride includes 4 to 5 revolutions around the wheel. The price of admission for Seattle's newest attraction: $13. Go ahead, be a kid again and go ride the Wheel! Post pictures on our facebook page! See you there! Sean
