The Classic Ferris Wheel With A Twist

When not moving, Mickey's Fun Wheel looks like an ordinary ferris wheel. But when this crazy contraption starts to move, you get a whole new perspective.

The gondolas on this ferris wheel are on a track that allows them to move freely. This can lead to a thrilling ride. Your gondola can go from a stand-still to moving and swaying back and forth quickly, resulting in a ton of fun.

For those that feel this is too intense, stationary gondolas are also available for riders to get a fantastic view of all of Paradise Pier, without the added thrill.

Overall, this ride is a must and I highly recommend it.
