Giant Wheel
At Cedar Point, bigger is better, and nothing is quite as big as the Giant Wheel. As one of the tallest Ferris wheels in the United States, riders are taken up and above the Lake Erie shoreline with views as far as the eyes will take them. While those seeking out the ultimate thrill are next door at The Boardwalk, this ride has brought riders back for more since its opening in 1972. Travel 145 feet in the air, gripping at the sides of one of 36 cabins, each filled with travelers awed by the sights and sounds that only this vantage point can provide. You’ll be able to see the whole park, and the whole park will be able to see you, especially at night when Giant Wheel lights up. You can’t miss the illumination along the skyline. After all, it has more lights than any other ride at the park. See you up there.
