Choose between Regular of Fastpass ticket options: The Regular Barcoded ticket is pre-barcoded to allow you to skip the line to purchase tickets and proceed directly to the line to board the wheel. The Fastpass Express ticket allows you to skip all the lines – both the ticket line and the regular boarding line – and gives you VIP access via the exclusive Fastpass Boarding Entrance. Both tickets also feature the Flexible Date feature which lets you visit whenever you like, within 7 days of your scheduled ticket date – so you can plan your visit around the weather when you are in Chicago
The Centennial Wheel was built in 2016 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the opening of Navy Pier and features 42 gondolas, each holding 8 people. Operating all year round the individual gondolas are air-conditioned in summer and heated in winter. They also feature LED lighting, padded seats, TV screens, and speakers, as well as panoramic windows on all 4 sides. So, no matter the season, these enclosed gondolas provide a comfortable experience with miraculous city views.
A ride on the wheel gives you plenty of time to enjoy these unforgettable panoramic views of Chicago as they unfold all around you and lets you go over the top three times. During these 3 revolutions, you can relax and take in the view or get your camera out to snap pictures of the ever-changing Chicago landscape
