Ferris wheel reported to e the tallest on the east coast. Enclosed, air conditioned gondola, lovely view up and down the coast line.

Great view and ride is surprisingly long for the $15 per person. Not as scary as you'd think since you are completely enclosed. We went during the day but I'm sure it would be great at night

If you like ferris wheels, this one is nice. Provides a good view of beach and boardwalk area. Not cheap, but fun.

It was nice to take a break and ride in the enclosed air conditioned car and take in the sights around town and the ocean. But the price was $14.00 per person.

The inside is like a space ship! Great views of the city goes slow enough to enjoy all views. I love the emergency button in case of an emergency!

You get an awesome view at the top of the Gerri's wheel. But even that is not worth the price. Very overpriced! Especially if you are a family. There is much funnier things at the beach that cost less. Oh! The ferries wheel only goes...More

Each gondola can seat 6 people comfortably on the bench seating. Children and infants can sit on laps so you should be fine fitting everyone in one gondola, especially with the baby!

I think you might be able to fit three on each side (6 total) of the 'car'. I was only there with my four year old but it felt like there would have been enough room. So with baby on lap it probably would work.
