The 300-foot observation wheel just opened at American Dream
Hey, Leonardo DiCaprio, look up! What’s three hundred feet tall and brand new? What is the American Dream Mall Observation Wheel.
It’s called the Dream Wheel and it officially opened on Wednesday morning after a media preview. You’ll find its entrance on the third level inside the Coca-Cola Eats food court. A carnival setting leads the way and they’ll even sell you funnel cakes and other treats that you can take right inside the ride.
The gondolas can accommodate 16 people and are temperature controlled. There are two VIP gondolas with a capacity of 6 passengers. The ride is said to be smooth and very slow, so slow you barely feel like moving, and lasts a good 30 minutes. It gives you value for your money.
How much money? $29 for adults and $20 for children.
You buy the view. At 300 feet, you’ll have views of the New York skyline. Not to mention the Meadowlands complex. But… also from, well, a swamp. I mean, that’s the deal with the Meadowlands, right?
And the, uh, beauty of North Jersey? Take a look at about 15 seconds of this video to see what I mean.
Hey, let’s stay positive though! Ben Pickett, the vice president of Skyviews of America, the company that owns and operates Dream Wheel, definitely is.
“The Dream Wheel isn’t just about views, it’s about experience,” he said. “Going over 300 feet in the air and taking in the views of New York City and the surrounding New Jersey area in air-conditioned gondolas that can accommodate up to 16 people is unique.”
