The Ferris Wheel at the Wharf is one of the tallest in the Southeast standing at 112 feet! It can hold 140 people in 24 Gondolas. One of the gondolas is handicapped accessible allowing everyone the experience of a lifetime. The Ferris Wheel at the Wharf was created by Italy's Technical Park and the ship wheel design was inspired by the surrounding Gulf Coast and Intercoastal Waterways. Make sure you take a ride on the Wharf Ferris Wheel next time you visit the Gulf Coast!

  • There really isn't much to see but it was nice. Only go around 4 times. Like the gondola on this ferris wheel.  more »
  • Fun, short ride. Staff was very friendly! I had a BOGO coupon from online and I was able to use it with no issues.  more »
  • Cheap and fun thing to do especially when sun is setting at night with the family or by yourself! I highly recommend!  more »

  • If you like heights, this is for you! For whatever reason I thought it would be a wonderful idea to take my girlfriend up on the wheel as a romantic gesture. Fast forward to me up on the wheel in the fetal position trying to not have a panic attack, not exactly romantic. But not the wheels fault, just my own insecurities... ....5 stars.
  • Amazingly huge ferris wheel at a great little outside mall! We loved the view from the top and how friendly all were to us! Ticket prices aren't bad and even better if you do a combo pack and do the train and mini gulf as well! Experience to remember for sure!
  • Drove to the Ferris Wheel with 3 excited kids and they told us that they had to wait for it to dry to ride (after a rain) and that it would be 45 minutes after the rain stops (left there at 6:15pm and the rain had just stopped). We drove back over 2 hours later (with no rain during this time)... and the employee again just said we had to wait until it was drive. They should have just said they likely wouldn’t run it the rest of the evening instead of wasting our time and upsetting the kids. It’s 8:30pm now and we are driving home with no ride.
  • Nice ride but only 5 rounds one was just waiting at the top..
  • Fun ride and great views. Very safe, my 2 year old had a great time.
