It's $12 for an 8 minute ride.  $8 for children (I think). Eight minutes gets you one revolution - it travels slow.  Yes, I enjoyed it - the views are great.  It's not something I'll probably do again soon, but definitely worth it the first time.  I'd suggest riding during the day so that you can actually look out around you.  Hubs and I went back during the evening to see it lit up and watch the synchronized 4th of July show set to music.  It was really cool! I read somewhere about long lines, but we just walked on; no line.
Thanks Gilligan
Small wonder our lives have so little of God in them, when we come in touch with so little that God has made.

I saw the Ferris Wheel for the first time this weekend. It is a fantastic addition to 76. It will become a landmark on Branson. However, in my opinion, it is way too expensive to ride. It cost $44 for our family of four to ride, and you only get to ride for one revolution. The whole experience is less than 10 minutes. I'm glad we did it, but we'll never do it again unless they lower the price significantly.

I'm sure that was an expensive business venture. Hopefully, they can offer some family discounts in the future.

That is an excellent point,  Maybe they will offer a family discount in the future. I can see where that would benefit both parties.

Amazing what they can do with those lights!   We did the Trail of Lights at Shepherd of the Hills and went up in the Inspiration Tower and watched the entire cycle.  Great stuff.
