The Bottom Line:

This 60-foot high Ferris Wheel offers you an incredible view of Dollywood and the surrounding Smoky Mountains. The loading and unloading can take a while, so be prepared to enjoy the view for a while!

Go back to a time when the fair coming to town was the only time to ride amusements, like ferris wheels. This classic ride is a crowd pleaser every time, unless you’re not a fan of heights. If that’s the case, this one isn’t for you. The Wonder Wheel has a beautifully nostalgic feel that will bring you some relaxation after walking around Dollywood all day.

Sit back and take a breather in the red leather seats made for two, or three if you have small children. Ride 60 feet up into the air and view the mountains and the area below you. Don’t move too much unless you want your bucket seat swinging. Rest easy as you go around and around at a pace that’s just right: not too fast, not too slow.
