It's a great spot to create great memories of your stay in OKC. Very photogenic place and great view of downtown OKC from this cute Ferris Wheel. It's not a big one but it's definitely a fun ride with a great view.

situated along the river front the Ferris wheel is the only attraction there It is a slow moving Ferriss wheel giving you plenty of opportunity too see the views around you.

Best Ferris wheel I've ever been on. Each cabin holds at least 4-6 people (depending on size). It goes slow enough that you can take in all the sights on the water, down below, and over to downtown. There's no way you it won't bring...More

This was a fun quick stop for me and my family. The OKC sign with the skyline in the background made for great pictures. I didn’t ride the Ferris wheel but everyone who came off of it had a smile on their face.

The price is $20for all day. It how many times do you really want to ride a Ferris wheel. There are no other attractions in the area yet just lots of dirt fill being spread around and construction

On site I do not think they do. They sold snack food and non alcoholic beverages that I re-call. But when they have food truck vendors that come they might.
