The Centennial Wheel is a massive Ferris wheel located on Navy Pier that offers stunning views of the Chicago skyline while you enjoy a relaxing ride upward. When you reach the top of this wheel, you can enjoy panoramic views of Chicago and Lake Michigan that go on for miles.

    Everyone can enjoy a trip on the wheel with its appeal to kids and adults alike. Even those who have a fear of heights can still have fun thanks to the comfortable and welcoming enclosed gondolas that passengers ride up on. It takes about 15 minutes to do a complete loop on the wheel.

    Centennial Wheel highlights

    The most iconic aspect of the Centennial Wheel is the height it reaches. At the Wheel’s peak, you’ll be nearly 200 feet above the pier, where you’ll be treated to stunning views of the city and the lake from gondolas with large panoramic windows.

    The gondolas are particularly impressive, ever since the wheel was revamped in 2016. You'll find 42 of them in total, and each one can hold up to 10 people with plenty of room for everyone to be comfortable. They're also air-conditioned or heated depending on the weather, so you can enjoy a ride in the summer or winter.
