This was a fun quiet ride for some amazing sight seeing. We enjoyed our quiet and romantic ride on this SkyWheel. You are able to have great views of the ocean and the beach area. We highly recommend.

The view from the sky wheel in out of this world. But, don't stop there. Take in all of the attractions of this boardwalk, there is something for everyone.

Great views at night of the city. They give a senior discount. 4 turns for 12 dollars. The cars are enclosed and airconditioned. Moves very slowly so you can take video.

The experience is amazing. Looking over the ocean from high up as if you are setting in the sky itself and looking over the town is great. The price is a little too much by about $3 a person.
