Foursquare Tips

  • I went with my Boy Friend & we had a great time! They were very nice! We are both Men!
  • Skip the long lines by purchasing your tickets online. At $13 a pop, you can take your lovely date for a romantic ride above the city. Average 4-5 loops. Beautiful 360 panoramic view from the top.
  • Buy your tickets online before you get there so you don't have to wait in line
  • Awesome sunset view
  • Be prepared to see straight couples making out.
  • It was almost 60 for a family of 3 kids and 2 adults. Not sure if I'd do it again but it was a cool tourist attraction to go on once.
  • If you go in the Morning you can ride the Wheel forever at the same 13 dollar price!
  • If you are gay don't hold hands with your date, my friend recently got kicked off for holding hands and kissing his date and escorted off the property
  • get there for sunset- short lines and wait times. great views of the sound and city!
  • Make sure you ask the ticket booth for VIP car. It has a glass floor, comfy seats and a television. Also comes with a T-shirts!!!
  • So much fun! Great place to take pictures!
  • $50 VIP gets you to the front of the line, a longer ride and a glass-bottom gondola.
  • Took nearly an hour to get on. And they load all the carriages for another 10 minutes. Maybe the most anti climactic ferriss wheel ever

  • Very clean and nice. Area is otherwise a little desolate. Decent view and a novel experience. There are worse things to do with your money and kill 15 minutes of time.
  • Wonderfully fun! Amazing view lights up at night. You can watch the sunset if you're on it at the right time. It's super fun for tourists and everyone! Some times there's a bit of a line but worth it.
  • I'm not gonna lie... I was a little scared to get on this thing. I mean, it's huge!!! But I'm really glad I did. It wasn't as scary as I thought because the cars are enclosed. Do it!
  • If it's a little grey out, go- you still get a great view and less lines! Don't put your sunglasses on top of your head if you want the photo they take of you- the glare cuts off the top of your head!
  • 360 degree view from up top! Take lots of pics!!
  • Ride is super slow. Great for any age. Beautiful views of Seattle.
