  • Such an exciting experience!! This SkyWheel adventure is well thought out and so much fun! My husband's in a wheelchair and this was 100% accessible. The ramps for ingress and egress are good quality and easy to utilize! No transfers necessary! The air conditioned cars made it even better on a hot day in SoCo! The views are fantastic! You can see the entire crescent coast from above! Absolutely revisiting this adventure!!
  • My wife and I were very impressed with this Ferris wheel. Each gondola holds 6 people and is air conditioned. Excellent views from the top. I think it went around about 5 times before dropping us off. Paid parking is available close by. I would definitely recommend this to anyone in the area.
