Ferris Wheel

Step into a suspended gondola with up to three of your friends and family members to indulge in a soothing ride and breathtaking view of Valleyfair, which is especially spectacular at night. The entire family, including adventuresome grandparents, will enjoy taking a ride on this staple attraction of American amusement parks. Travel 85 feet in the air to get a bird's eye view of Valleyfair on this classic amusement park ride. Friends and families can take advantage of riding together in one of the 18 gondolas, each filled with travelers awed by the sights and sounds that only this vantage point can provide. You’ll be able to see the whole park, and the whole park will be able to see you, especially at night when the Wheel lights up. See you up there. Located between Corkscrew and Planet Snoopy™, stop by on your way to visit some of your favorite PEANUTS™ characters.

Riders must be 48” tall to ride alone OR accompanied by a supervising companion. Hand held infants are not permitted. Maximum Weight – 1,050 lb. per gondola. Minimum two guests per gondola.
