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.

Seattle Great Wheel reviews
It's an ok attraction if you want to "play tourist". It is not an "exciting" or "thrill" ride if that's what you're looking for. It does give you a bird's eye view of the Seattle skyline & Elliott..... more

AMAZING VIEWS & CALMING EXPERIENCE. I was lucky enough to enjoy a space all to myself when I experienced the Seattle Great Wheel. Bough a beer that came in their souvenir cup (pricey). I liked sipping a beer while enjoying the view so it wasn't a big deal for me. The ride is slow enough to enjoy the view and fast enough to stay entertaining. The inside of the pods are very spacious and sturdy. This is a "manage your expectations" situation. I got exactly what I expected and enjoyed it. I gave it a four star because there wasn't anyone really at the ride when I was there and I felt the ride should have and could have been a bit longer.
Definitely worth the money and the line up. Most big cities have a Ferris wheel or a tower where you can see the city from.. Seattle has both. under $20 you can take few spins on this Ferris Wheel and check out some great views of the city. I just wish they opened early and be able to enjoy a morning coffee while on the wheel as its not as busy in the morning as it is at Night... however at night the atmosphere is spectacular with all the lights.
