This large Ferris wheel just east of Centennial Olympic Park stands nearly 20 stories tall and features 42 air-conditioned gondolas. While passengers ride the attraction, they'll enjoy stunning views of the downtown skyline.
Previous visitors raved about SkyView Atlanta's central location and superb panoramas, especially at night. However, multiple travelers reported encountering long admission lines and lamented the expensive rates. Some also found the ride to be too boring and slow.
SkyView Atlanta is open Sunday through Thursday from noon to 11 p.m., on Fridays between noon and midnight, and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to midnight. It is within walking distance of must-see sights like the World of Coca-Cola, the College Football Hall of Fame and the Center for Civil and Human Rights, as well as the Peachtree Center, Five Points and Dome/GWCC/Philips Arena/CNN Center MARTA train stations. Travelers with cars can also drive and park at the LAZ parking deck, which is two blocks southeast of the attraction. All riders get $5 off of parking rates at this facility.
Standard tickets cost $13.89 for adults; $12.50 for seniors, students and members of the military; and $9.26 for children between 3 and 11. Kids 2 and younger are granted free admission.
