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.

  • We thought a ride on the Skyview ferris wheel , going up 20 stories high - would be exciting, fun, breath-taking.. It wasn't. Not for us, anyway! You get into a little enclosed cable car, and they tak...  read more »
  • So my girls wanted to ride the Sky View Farris Wheel. This cost my family of 4 - $50. you do get a 15 minute ride, but you really don't get a good view of the city. We did do it at night. The best par...  read more »

  • Awesome view of the city from up above. This Ferris wheel ride is actually longer than expected. They even take your picture before the ride starts so that you can have a keepsake. Dinner and chocolates are available also for a small price. Great for a romantic night out.
  • Air conditioning and ventilation are NOT sufficient for HOTlanta. The pod I sat in had temperamental A/C, so things got TOASTY. Worst of all was the total apathy of the workers here. Case in point: my line to enter went through closed tents in the back with inadequate ventilation, so hot I felt faint. When I got out of the tent and told an employee that it felt dangerously hot in there, she just laughed at me and did nothing even as I told her I was serious! Meanwhile she and her coworkers had a fan trained steadily on them while they stood under an open tent with plenty of outside air circulation. RUDE and dangerous for those with weak health conditions.
  • Unless you buy your tickets on groupon or some other online savings service, Skyview isn't worth $15/person. The two guys who were suppose to be directing people into the pods, were unprofessional and uncoordinated with each other. Told my girlfriend and I opposite things to do. This place will try to sell you their mother's wedding ring if they could. The photographer tried to make my girlfriend and I kiss for the picture. We've been dating ~3 years and not super big fans of excessive PDA. The photographer asked us 5 times to kiss or do some weird pose, so we would feel more obligated to buy their pictures at the photo booth. I was not having it. Kinda put a sour mood on the night. He even made a comment that it must be our first date because we didn't kiss. You do get to go around the Ferris wheel 5 times and the view over centennial park is beautiful, but by golly this place's staff is terrible. Also hold your nose when crossing the street back over to the park because that corner is where the horse carriages stop and it smells like straight horse dung.
  • It is what it is. Just a ferris wheel with nice views. We went during the day and the air conditioner didn't work properly so we couldn't wait to get out. Price was kind of high for what you get
  • Visited and rode Skyview Atlanta on 6/24/16. It was amazing! I went up on a dare, because I'm afraid of heights. I was so worried on the way to the top, that it would be all herky-jerky like a regular Ferris wheel. It wasn't. The ride to the top was very quick, but it was also very smooth, and controlled. No jerking around. No feeling like you're about to flip over and fall from the car. I could relax and focus on the views of Atlanta, and it was awesome! There was even a narration of the sites you should be able to see playing over a speaker in the car. And the cars were fully enclosed, and air-conditioned. I would definitely do it again, and recommend it everyone.
