    Great view of the city - worth it for those scenic shots
    If you want a great view of the city then this is it. We had about four turns in it, but it was very much worth it. They offer you a photo opportunity which we did, however our photo didn’t turn out right so they let us have some more photos taken for free. Would 100% recommend this attraction

    During the Day
    I know this is a popular ride to go on at night to see the Centennial Olympic park all lit up but I wanted to get some good photos of the park during the daylight. There were only a few other people riding it so I got a pod to myself. It goes around three or four times and takes about ten minutes. I got some really good photos and I enjoyed the ride.

    The view and ride well worth it.
    It was a great experiences. We had arrived later than our reservation time but they were very accommodating. We did get some soft drinks offer to drinks and was in the gondola for about 30mins however we could have stayed longer but we had other plans. We purchased the VIP tickets to be able to stay on the gondola longer than general admissions. Overall we enjoyed the ride and the view.

    Fun, Quick Experience
    We were satisfied with our experience. The ferris wheel made 3 quick rotations, then stopped several times on the fourth rotation to unload/load. The views of Centinneal Olympic Park are great, as well as of the surrounding downtown buildings. We used a Groupon deal which included a box of chocolate (and was cheaper than buying 2 regular adult tickets), so I would recommend doing that if it is available. The drawback to the experience is how quick it is over.

    Fun, but Pricey
    If you have the time and some money to spare, Skyview is worth checking out since it is definitely fun. As others have said though, the view is a bit limited and there are better views to be found in the city for cheaper. Is nice that they're open late since many of the other attractions in the area close fairly early.

    This is a ferris wheel, set your expectations accordingly
    It's a big ferris wheel. If you want to go on a big ferris wheel that overlooks centennial place then this is a big ferris wheel that brings up you 20 stories or so over centennial place. We were on for about 10 minutes which was enough time to enjoy it. The gondolas are air conditioned and very safe. The staff were friendly and helpful. I considered going with the VIP gondola because you can skip the line but when we arrived on a weekend in April there were no long lines and were quickly able to get on. Stop by Philly G's afterwards for an authentic and refreshing Philadelphia water ice!

It is a fun thing to do when visiting any city but it is a fast ride and you may have to stand in line for awhile to get on. The views were kind of obstructed but you are in air conditioning while on the ride. It may be more fun to do at night.

3 rounds on the Ferris wheel, can’t say it was the most beautiful of skyline but neat enough. It is a neat feature in the city, reasonably priced.

They take you twice around for just under $20. A complete rip off. The views aren’t very good either. No lines because the locals know this is a tourist trap

I was walking through Centennial Olympic Park one afternoon and saw this beautiful Ferris wheel all lit up and calling my name. I’m a sucker for a good Ferris wheel, whether it be the Texas Star® in Dallas or the famous London Eye or the Bailang River Bridge Ferris wheel in Weifang, China. I’ve ridden many of them.

Here’s the problem. All of those offer sweeping panoramas of intriguing scenery. SkyView Atlanta only offers a decent view of the park, but buildings block everything else including Atlanta’s tallest skyscrapers and any sort of distant look at the horizon. It’s just not in a good location.

So you end up spending $18.51 per person to spin around four times, lingering near the top on the fourth circumnavigation, but seeing the same boring views over and over again. It’s really not worth the time nor the money.

This was a fun activity with a visiting family member. The line was short and I had tickets from Groupon. Recommend to anyone in the Centennial Park area.
