At 53 m (175 ft) tall, Seattle Great Wheel draws visitors to view the city. One ride takes you around the giant Ferris wheel three times, giving you ample opportunity to spot Mt. Rainier and Puget Sound in the distance, and to enjoy the sights below. Each gondola seats up to eight people, but each group receives a private gondola. One luxury gondola sports leather seats, a stereo system, and a glass floor for all-around views.
