You get great views of the city. If you are scared of heights, do not ride it. It goes higher than the tallest resort.

The boardwalk is alot of fun with arcades shops and restaurants. However the price for a ride on the skywheel is ridiculous.

The Skywheel is s great way to see the coast, ocean, and the town. The enclosed seating is very comfortable and even though it was chilly outside, it was well heated. Nice moderate speed, so don't be scared.

we paid 52 for 4 people with a coupon for 4 rotations around the wheel. Then it was another 30 for a picture. Too expensive.
