SkyView Atlanta: Downtown Fun Awaits

See downtown Atlanta in a whole new way aboard SkyView Atlanta -- the city's own gorgeous Ferris wheel that towers more than 20 stories above Centennial Park! This Atlanta attraction welcomes visitors of all ages and sizes in a safe environment with 42 gondolas. Each ride normally lasts between 7-12 minutes.

Got loud kiddos? Don't worry about it! Each private gondola fits up to six adults, so don't worry about rambunctious behavior because you don't have to share with strangers. 

There are no restrictions pertaining to weight, height, or age, so families of all shapes and sizes will have a wonderful time riding SkyView Atlanta (two standard gondolas allow for wheelchair access as well). And because this attraction runs in rain and sun, it's a reliable source of fun, regardless of the weather, when exploring downtown Atlanta.

Want to take your SkyView Atlanta ride to the next level? Visitors can ride the VIP gondola, featuring Ferrari-style seats, a glass floor, and a longer flight time. The VIP flight fits up to five people.
