  • We've only ridden the Ferris Wheel twice. Save your enjoyment for the Wharf's night-time light show extravaganza which is synchronized to music. Take in a movie afterwards.  more »
  • The idea of a ferris wheel on the beach sounds great, but $5 for 3 turns and not much of a view to see makes this a very average experience.  more »
  • Great ride. You go around a few times an d if you're lucky, you'll get stuck at the top! There you can take a few pics, see the view (if your eyes are open), and pray for it to keep moving!  more »

  • The ferris wheel has now been renovated with LED lights and is a true centerpiece of The Wharf. Looks great.
  • Kids liked it, the ride was short, but they were getting ready for the parade. Or so.
  • We were early for the movie so we took the ride. Fun to be able to see over the canopy. Great lighting at night, it can be seen for blocks.
  • It's a really pleasant experience. Nice speed. A few stops along the way. It goes around about 5 times. Cool breeze. Very sturdy, stable ride. Holds half ton each and up to 5 people. But 4 comfortably. I would do it again and you should, too.
  • They only spin you around 3 times. Not worth the money. View was ok. Def. Better at night.
