What people are saying about Atlanta

I had a great time at the SkyView Ferris Wheel. If your visiting in Atlanta for the first time, or you are a local looking for a nice cap to your evening I highly recommend going. They have a nice drink menu where you can sip while ride. The ride itself is smooth enough during its rotations to give a safe but appealing experience. The staff was very courteous on/off boarding customers and the time duration of the ride was satisfying. I will definitely be back again.

Excellent purchase! This was my first time using City Pass and it was so easy to use as the app describes before buying it. You do not need to wait in line for purchasing tickets or even when purchasing tickets for us foreigners could be tedious as our credit cards some times are not compatible with US system. In addition I was able to meet some of Atlanta’s most visited places/museums. They were amazing. For sure I will buy it again for upcoming trips.

One experience you shouldn’t miss!!! SkyView Ferris Wheel is a must to do in Atlanta! A Great Wonderful Experience!!

I liked the view and the service. The restrooms could be more readily accessible.

Definitely worthwhile, even if afraid of heights like 2 people in our group!
