The Seattle Great Wheel
1301 Alaskan Way, Seattle, WA 98101
A Ferris Wheel on the Puget Sound.
A memorable piece of the Seattle downtown landscape, offering gorgeous views for the whole family!
The Seattle Great Wheel has got to be the most recognizable part of the Seattle skyline next to the Space Needle, of course. This is another great opportunity to use your Seattle City Pass. If you are spending the day in museums and tourist attractions, this pass booklet is the best way to save some money.
The great wheel is much more height-fearing-friendly than a normal Ferris wheel. With enclosed glass pods you can escape seasonal heat in the air conditioning and still get a great view of the city on one side, and Alki Beach on the other. You might be able to see the Olympic mountains on a clear day as well. The ride is about 15-minutes long, and the pods are fully accessible for wheelchairs.
