Ferris Wheel

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. 

Riders must be 48” tall or accompanied by a supervising companion.
