Atlanta Ferris Wheel: Find the Best Downtown Views on SkyView Atlanta

SkyView Atlanta is not your average Ferris Wheel that you’ll find at the county fair. Towering nearly 20 stories above Centennial Olympic Park, the SkyView Downtown Atlanta Ferris Wheel features 42 climate-controlled gondolas providing guests with breathtaking panoramic views of downtown Atlanta, Georgia.

Here’s what you need to know before taking a spin on this fun Atlanta, GA, adventure.

SkyView Atlanta is located right across the street from Centennial Olympic Park in Downtown Atlanta at 168 Luckie Street NW. This Atlanta Ferris Wheel is open every day — meaning you can take a spin whenever it’s convenient for you.

The private climate-controlled gondolas seat 6 adults, so it’s a great option for families or friend groups. And introverts, don’t worry — the gondolas are private, so you won’t be seated with a stranger. There are no height or weight restrictions, but kids must be accompanied by an adult.

The ride on SkyView Atlanta can take anywhere from 7-12 minutes, and during that time you’ll see amazing views of downtown Atlanta and the surrounding metro Atlanta area. On a clear day, you may even see Kennesaw Mountain. The Ferris Wheel will take you 200 feet in the air!

When we visited, the surrounding metropolitan area looked dreamy as dusk turned into dark. We absolutely loved it.

Those looking for an even more enhanced experience will enjoy the VIP Gondola, boasting Ferrari-style seats, a glass floor and a longer flight time. A VIP flight can fit up to 5 people.

Simply ask one of the ticket agents at SkyView for the discounted chaser ticket that you will use when exiting the garage. With the chaser ticket, parking will be $6.  Be sure to show the SkyView ticket agent your original parking ticket to receive the discount chaser card.
