Skyview Atlanta Ferris Wheel Open for Rides

7/16/2013, 5:23 p.m.
On Tuesday, Skyview Atlanta -- a 200-foot high, skyscraping Ferris wheel -- opened to much fanfare in downtown Atlanta, across from Centennial Olympic Park.

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and City Council members took the first official ride on Atlanta's newest local attraction.

The latest attraction to Atlanta is located directly beside Tabernacle Atlanta, in the 100 block of Luckie Street.

The ride will complete four revolutions per ride and last about 15 minutes, according to developers.

The cost is $13.50 ($14.45, including tax) for adults, $8.50 ($9.10, including tax) for children and $12.15 for military ($13, including tax).

"You can see Atlanta from here" is the slogan for the 200-foot high attraction, which gives passengers a moving birds-eye view of the city.

The attraction will be open most days 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. with an extra hour at night on Saturday.
