Seattle Waterfront Park
the Great Seattle Wheel and more
Seattle, Washington
June 19th and July 9, 2015

The Seattle Great Wheel is the largest observation wheel on the west coast, standing 175 feet tall and has become an icon of the city and a destination for tourists and locals alike. It is Seattle's newest waterfront attraction. The Ferris wheel features closed, climate-controlled cars that can each seat up to 6 adults. During the 15-20 minute ride passengers enjoy wonderful views of downtown Seattle, Elliott Bay, West Seattle, and the surrounding scenery. At night, the wheel dazzles with colored lighting. The Seattle Great Wheel is located on Pier 57.

The historic pier where it all began! In 1897, the steamship Portland, weighed down with the first load of gold from the Klondike, docked at the pier where Miners Landing now stands. Now, Pier 57 is home to the Miners Landing, a family-friendly shopping, restaurant and entertainment complex.

“The Seattle gold rush of 1897-98 was more than just an interesting story. It was the major turning point in the city’s history.”
