Navy Pier Ferris Wheel
Take a ride on Navy Pier's most visible attraction, the 150-foot-high Ferris wheel. The Navy Pier Ferris Wheel is year round fun for kids of all ages. Modeled after the world's very first Ferris wheel, an engineering marvel constructed for Chicago's 1893 World Colombian Exposition, the Navy Pier Ferris wheel lifts visitors to unparalleled sweeping views of the skyline and lakefront. The Pier's wheel has forty gondolas seating six passengers each and in the evening thousands of sparkling lights illuminate the wheel's forty 140-foot-diameter spokes.


May 1-October 31 (weather permitting): Sunday-Thursday, 10:00 am-10:00 pm;
