My adult daughter, her friend and I were staying down the street from the ferris wheel and added it to our fun things to do while in town. Atlanta is hot, however, each gondola unit is enclosed with manual air temp adjustments. We enjoyed it, however the apt building where we were staying had a superb rooftop view of the city. :-)

This man made park is a really great idea. Your first time will be your best time because you don't know what to expect. The view is the best in ALL of Atlanta. The food was not that great and the admission was overpriced but everyone was so nice the employees made up for excellent service. It's the perfect place to go on a first date or take the kids. I will most likely visit again when I'm in town. It was great fun and reminded me alot of N.Y. city

We were walking through the Olympic Park on our recent visit to Atlanta and decided to give Skyview Atlanta a try. It is pretty pricey for just an ok view. The best view is of the Olympic Park and the Olympic ring fountain but otherwise not much else to really see. If you are on the fence on doing this attraction I would recommend saving your money.

With this type of attraction whether or not to pay for the experience always comes down to one question: Is it worth it? And in the case of the Skyview, it is. The cars are air conditioned and feature a guided audio tour of your surroundings, which is a nice touch. You get to go around several times so you can settle in, relax, and enjoy the views. Look north and you will see the skylines of Midtown, followed by Buckhead, and eventually Sandy Springs! I have been both during the day and at night and each offers a different, but still enjoyable view of the city. The Skyview is a great option for a local or tourist who has never tried it before.

The cars are airconditioned and clean. I went alone and got a car to myself. Having said that, the ride is a total of 10 minutes long and since they are loading the cars continuously, you don't even get to enjoy a full rotation during those 10 minutes. It was just a welcome, airconditioned respite from the heat outside. There is hardly any view also. Totally overrated. i would not recommend it.
