Seattle Great Wheel

Are there tourist attractions around you that you've never checked out?  For John, the answer was "yes" until this week when he finally took a ride on Seattle's Great Wheel.  Reading the reviews on the web, it appears most folks enjoy the ride although it does get kind of pricey for large families. The views are spectacular on a clear day.

The Great Wheel is on the Waterfront

A transparent floor in gondola allows
some interesting views.
Looking south, over the sports stadiums,
Mount Rainier in the distance.
Thank you for stopping by John's Island.


  1. since i finally rode The Texas Star at the Texas State Fair early this month, i can appreciate you riding this ferris wheel, too. :)

  2. Wow, what an amazing ride, and the views you had were spectacular. Thanks for sharing John.

  3. I'm glad you got the pictures from up there,because I WILL NEVER be there. I prefer to keep both feet solidly on the ground. LOL

  4. Well, I guess I need to put this on my bucket list, John. I'll do it! Thanks for the information so I can follow up. :-)

  5. Wow... it must be a great feeling when you are on the top.
