You cannot afford to miss the Navy Pier's most visible attraction, the 150 foot-high Ferris wheel. This fun ride is open year-round. It is not only fun for kids but for all age groups. It is modeled after the very first Ferris wheel, which was built for Chicago's 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. On the Navy Pier Ferris wheel you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Chicago skyline and lake-front. During the evening, the illuminated Ferris wheel with thousands of sparkling lights is a sight that one must not miss.
