  • The Centennial Wheel is the state-of-the-art centerpiece of Chicago's vibrant Navy Pier

The iconic Centennial Wheel on Chicago's Navy Pier offers some of the best views of The City of the Big Shoulders. This nearly 200-foot wheel takes viewers round and round in air-conditioned comfort. The Centennial Wheel, opened in May 2016, is 46 feet (14 m) taller than the Ferris wheel it replaced. That's progress, baby!

Down at Chicago's Navy Pier, the Centennial Wheel is your chance to get up high in the Chicago sky for the best (and most comfortable) views of the city.

With LED lighting, air-conditioning, and glass-bottomed gondolas, this attraction is one of the most pleasant ways to see Chicago's world famous skyline.

Plus, with three revolutions in the state-of-the-art gondolas, you'll get plenty of revolutionary bang for your amusement buck.
