 Review of Giant Sun Wheel @ Palace Playland
0 Rating Posted by: Canobie Coaster on 9/1/2005 8:43:00 AM
APPEARANCE: It definitely looks different than other Ferris wheels, but the ride has a great paint scheme and the sun on the side of the wheel looks great. For a ferris wheel, the lights at night are pretty lackluster though.

WAIT TIME: Walk-On- Never have seen a line for this since the ops just will stop the ride whenever someone gets in line or someone requests to get off. Also, this has a very high capacity.

Well, the views during the ride are incredible because of its location next to the beach. Regardless of the time of day, the views from the top of the beach, park itself, and downtown are incredible. The speed of the wheel is very slow and therefore the ride is very relaxing. Also unique for this ferris wheel is the ability to spin the cars, which allows everyone to get a good view.

FINAL VERDICT: This is an excellent Ferris wheel and would be my favorite if it werent for the one nearby at Yorks. The views are just incredible and makes this a must ride.

I enjoyed having the ferris wheel gondolas spin. Everyone gets a great view from the spinning. Also, I enjoy the spinning rides, so the spinning gondolas, were very fun.

Yeah, those things whip around, I usually spin it fast anough to scare myself, then slow it down. I think every time Ive ridden, the opperator has asked if I wanted to go again.

Since the ride has a high capacity, and rarely a line, they let you stay on as long as you want, if you have a wristband. At the end of July when I went, they gave 2
ticket rerides, because of how there was no line.
