Around and around and around she goes. Set to open for riders this Friday, June 29th, ‘The Seattle Great Wheel,’ began construction on April 3rd on Pier 57 in the heart of the downtown waterfront. The piers along the core downtown waterfront are no longer ‘working’ piers, but filled with amusements, restaurants, shops, sight-seeing tours and cruise terminals.
Pier 57 already sports a carousel and arcade. The ferris wheel’s 42 enclosed (heated and/or air conditioned) gondolas will lift riders 200 feet into the air with a spectacular view up and down the Seattle waterfront, Mount Rainier (on a clear day), the Space Needle, CenturyLink and Safeco Fields. The price for a ride isn’t too steep, $12 for adults and $8 for children. I hope to catch a ride on this new attraction sometime this summer (even though I’m terrified of heights) just to get a couple photographs.
I’ll be trying to get around to visit you all soon, I’ve been testing paint colors and prepping to paint the exterior of our home.
