|The Seattle Great Wheel on Opening Weekend|
The ride is smooth and comfortable. The gondolas are enclosed. There are narrow slit windows at the top that can open for ventilation and there is also heat and air conditioning. There's even a call button on the ceiling in case someone has an emergency. The ride can operate rain or shine. And it has that new Ferris Wheel smell!
|This thing is big|
|From inside a gondola it looks a little like a roller coaster|
The wheel also has an elaborate LED light show which I will return to photograph some evening in the future, when the days are shorter.
|The ride is smooth and comfortable with Air Conditioning!|
