  1. Unique – United States (verified owner)

    The Sky Wheel it self was a nice ride, especially at night. It was nice to see the city lite up. Staff took several minutes before they could figure out how to redeem the Get Your Guide tickets. The experience was overall enjoyable, quite, no long lines and big crowds like other city ferris wheels.

  2. Fabiola – United States (verified owner)

    Amazing views, the staff did a great job of cleaning each pod before the next person entered.

  3. Ingrid – United States (verified owner)
