You can take a virtual ride on the iconic Pacific Wheel Ferris wheel, located inside Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier, courtesy of KTLA and their #LAsVeryOwn 360 video series. For those times when you can’t make it out to the Pier or just need a little escape from your daily life, revisit a ride on the Pacific Wheel.
The Pacific Wheel is the world’s first and only solar-powered Ferris wheel and gives visitors a panoramic view of the Southern California coastline from more than 130 feet above the Santa Monica Pier. Measuring 85 feet, the Wheel moves at 2.5 revolutions per minute with intermittent stops to pick up passengers. Features more than 174,000 energy-efficient LED lights that display dynamic, eye-popping computer-generated lighting entertainment in the evenings.
