So fun to look out and see the whole landscape! We went at sunset and the colors and clouds were beautiful. I like this ride because everyone in the family can do it. Highly recommend.

Enjoyed riding the Wonder Wheel during a visit to Coney Island. The Wheel and The Cyclone would be my recommended classic rides to go on. $8 per ride, two go-arounds, and your choice of rocking or stable cars. Very high and cool views of all...More

For me the trip to Coney Island was all about seeing the famous Wonder Wheel I had seen in the movie Warriors. It was worth it just for that. A hot dog at Nathan's was an added bonus. The rest of the park is worth...More
