#3 of 18 in Theme Parks in Georgia
Experience breathtaking views with SkyView Atlanta, a huge Ferris wheel with enclosed gondolas. The 61 m (200 ft) wheel towers above Centennial Park, providing panoramic vistas of downtown and the surrounding metropolitan area. Each of the 42 cars is climate-controlled for a comfortable trip, but if you really want to ride in luxury, opt for the VIP experience. Not for the faint of heart, the VIP gondolas feature glass flooring along with plush leather seats. To visit SkyView Atlanta on your trip to Atlanta, use our Atlanta online holiday builder .

  • It's always a nice view on top of a Ferris Wheel. I have to say that the souvenir picturee they take you is INSANELY pricey. I honestly want to see someone buying that some day  more »
  • Had a great time here with my wife. Took her out and weren’t planning on riding but we thought it would be cool and it paid off.  more »
  • If you're visiting Atlanta, or maybe you're like me and you've seen the Skyview several times but never actually took a ride on it, you might stop in and check it out. It's nothing fancy, really--just...  more »

  • Great view of.... pretty much nothing. Makes the night skyline look good but is not remotely worth the price of admission. I could see how this would be a good destination for a date or how it would appeal to someone who was from out of town and lived in a town without a Ferris wheel. If you want a great view of the city pay around the same price for a few cocktails on top of the Westin nearby at the Sun Dial.
  • Went on Thanksgiving night. So they are open on at least that holiday. It's pretty expensive for a short ride. There were people in front of me that had some kind of coupons that made it very cheap. So look for those. Nice views of the park nearby. Night time was good to see things lit up for Christmas. There was a pan handler right in the exit which seemed odd. Kind of like it was sanctioned by the ride.
  • This was my first Ferris wheel ride. I now know that these are not my thing. I was there for about an 1hr and 25min most of that time was the lone. The ride itself was about 7min. The first two loops were stop and go as more people got on and then there was a full loop. The view is not anything special and the whole and experience was pretty boring. The fun part was how hard we laughed at the waste of time and money. I will never go there again, but to be fair I do not plan to go to any Ferris wheel again. Oh and that magician who used to be at underground was working there, so that was cool.
  • Pretty pricey for such a short ride but you can't beat that view. Equipment looked brand new and in great condition. Staff was courteous and everything appeared to be well maintained which makes someone who's afraid of heights like me feel much more at ease. Be advised that as you're getting in line, they'll pull you aside for a picture in front of a backdrop and then try to sell it to you when you get off the ride. I believe the pictures were around $40-50 or so?? I might be remembering wrong but kind of difficult to tell your kids no in front of them however we'd just shelled out $70 for the ride.
  • I thought it would be more than just a ferris wheel, but nevertheless, very beautiful view at the top. We were lucky enough to have stopped at the very top of the wheel for a few minutes. Air conditioned carriages too. Staff were quick and friendly.

Where to stay in Atlanta

Most of Atlanta's top hotels cluster in a downtown area with an easy-to-remember name--the Hotel District. The city's political and commercial hub, this area offers quick walking access to most major attractions. Another good area for boutique hotels and rental apartments is the ever-expanding Midtown, with proximity to most of Atlanta's big-name museums and theaters. If you're looking to save some money on accommodations, explore options in the more economical chain hotels outside downtown; from there, you can take the city's public transport to centrally located attractions and activities.
