The Seattle Great Wheel Light Shows

Come down and enjoy one of our many LED light shows!

The Seattle Great Wheel is covered in over 500,000 LED lights!  We have colorful light show displays that usually run every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from pm-10pm.  Mid week, we typically illuminate just the ring beam.  Keep an eye out on holidays and game days for special themed light shows-they are especially fun to watch.

We also do Custom Light shows.  If you are getting married, have a special event, or want to do a baby gender reveal, we would love to be a part of your event.  We can program an array of patterns, letters, colors and designs.

Where can I buy tickets?

You can purchase tickets at our ticket booth on site, or right here on our website! Tickets are the same price in person and online. To purchase tickets online, click on the Buy Tickets button below the type of ticket you wish to purchase. You will need to print the tickets at home and bring them to the ticket holder line. If you do not print the tickets ahead of time, you will need to wait in the ticketing line for a cashier to issue the tickets in person. Tickets are general admission valid for any date or time that the wheel is open (excluding the by reservation only New Year's Eve Midnight Ride) and do not expire until used.

How long is the ride?

Ride time varies based on how large the crowd is and how many gondolas we are loading for each ride. During Summer operations with larger crowds, we typically have ride times between 12-20 minutes. During Winter operations with smaller crowds, we typically have ride times between 10-15 minutes. But as always, every ride is three full revolutions of the wheel.

Can I get a cabin for just two of us?

Yes, with the purchase of the VIP ticket! The VIP cabin is always private for just your group. The cabin features a glass bottom floor surrounded by 4 leather seats and a stereo system. You will receive front of the line service, souvenir t-shirts, souvenir photo booth photo's and a beverage from the Wheel bar to enjoy during your ride. If you choose an alcohol beverage, you can enjoy the drink inside the cabin during your ride ONLY IF everyone in the cabin is 21+. If there are minors present, you will not be able to have alcohol in the cabin with you. This cabin is also loaded on a first come first serve basis and we do not take reservations for it.

Can I get a private cabin that is not the VIP cabin?

Maybe. If we are not too busy, we will not group people up to have a minimum number of people per cabin. If we are very busy, we may require a minimum of 4 or 6 persons per cabin so that the line is not extraordinarily long. During times that we are grouping, you will not be able to get your own cabin and we suggest visiting us another time. Your other option would be to take advantage of the VIP cabin which is guaranteed private AND comes with front of the line service, t-shirts, photo's and a cocktail while you ride!
