The Details

Located at the newly activated Waterfront Park (in front of Rio City Café), a visually-exciting and whimsical 65’ Ferris wheel, will take center stage for the holidays with rides offered on Friday, October 30 and continuing daily through January 31, 2021.

Offering fantastic views of the city atop the “Waterfront Wheel,” riders must be at least 44” to ride and in the same household in each open-air cart (that holds up to four people). Once debuted, hours of operation for the Waterfront Wheel will be Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. with special holiday hours from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. (November 25 – 29, December 20 – January 3 & January 15 - 18). Election day (November 3rd) 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

To help keep the community safe, physically distanced line queues will be in place, carts will be sanitized regularly (with employee disinfecting of high-touch surfaces, restraints after patrons disembark, etc.), and contactless payment and admission will be available.

Cost to ride the Waterfront Wheel is $6 per rider. (plus fee on the pricing)
