This ride is no longer there. Palace Playland decided to keep its tradition of selling a ride in exchange for something of lesser quality. If I want to ride a portable ferris wheel, I'll go to a carnival.

A pretty average ferris wheel; nice motion and the turning gondolas are an interesting touch, but the view really isn't very good.

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.

Great views from the top of this ferris wheel and they can even be spun. This is handy so that everyone gets a chance to see, and you can also spin it very fast, which is always fun.

This ride is overpriced, and for a lousy ride too. They should relocate this. We got a nice view of one of the game booths, a guy smoking on a bench, and that was about it.

A slow ferris wheel. it dose offer a great view but with one problem. On this ride you can grab the center coulomb and turn the gondola like a tea cup ride. not a comfortable thing for me.
