Take a Ride on the Great WheelBuilt in 2012, the 175-foot-tall Seattle Great Wheel is the newest, and most romantic, addition to Seattle’s waterfront skyline. (As you might imagine, the first midair marriage proposal happened almost immediately.) Rain or shine, you can take a ride in one of its fully enclosed gondolas, which extend 40 feet past the pier over Elliott Bay. It’s especially eye-catching at night, when the wheel is illuminated in colorful designs. If you’re feeling indulgent — or want to pop the question — try the private luxury gondola with four leather bucket seats, a stereo system, and a glass floor; each ticket also includes a champagne toast at Fisherman's Restaurant, a VIP t-shirt, photobooth photos, and a personal escort to the front of the line.

Seattle Great Wheel
The Seattle Great Wheel, completed in June of 2012, is located at the Seattle Waterfront. It is a little expensive, and nerve-wracking on the way up, but it's worth it. The Ferris wheel is one of the biggest in the U.S., and provides a spectacular view of Elliot Bay, Downtown, and much more. In addition, at one point during the ride, it actually goes over the water!

The Seattle Great Wheel built in 2012, is the largest observation wheel on the west coast. It is 175 feet tall and can hold up to 300 passengers at any time. The wheel is open year round. There are fully enclosed gondolas and a covered waiting area, so the rain can’t stop the wheel from spinning.
