SkyStar Wheel

The SkyStar wheel is the nation’s largest portable observation wheel and it is in Cincinnati September 1- December 2, 2018. I finally was able to head downtown this weekend to see the wheel light up the Cincinnati skyline on Saturday night. It was a super windy fall evening but we were able to capture some photos of the Ferris wheel by the world famous Roebling Bridge that connects Cincinnati to Northern Kentucky.

The SkyStar has become a local highlight for photographers across the area as it provides a unique view of the beautiful skyline from the Newport, KY side of the river. When we arrived Saturday evening there were several local photo groups out capturing the sunset. It comes to Cincinnati after successful visits to Louisville, KY and Norfolk, VA.

The SkyStar wheel is equipped with 36 climate-controlled gondolas. Each gondola can hold up to six people. Guests are treated to fantastic views of the city as the ride takes you 15-stories above the banks of the Ohio River at Cincinnati’s Riverfront Park. The wheel is open daily and costs $12.50 and all ages are welcome to ride.
