What is a VIP flight?

Only the greatest flight! Skip the line and take flight in our VIP gondola with glass floors, leather seats, a double ride and a SkyWheel t-shirt and VIP lanyard. A VIP flight is $50 per person and the ULTIMATE experience for a night you’ll never forget!

How many people can fit in a gondola at one time?

Anywhere from 2-6 people can fly at one time. For the VIP flight, up to 4 can fly. And don’t worry – if there are just a few of you, no strangers will be put in with you. Each flight is your own private experience!

Where is the best place to park?

If you’d like the easiest access to the SkyWheel, there is a paid parking lot right next door. Unfortunately, we don’t own this lot so we can’t control the prices. If you’re just making a quick visit and have a handful of change, there are some metered spots all along Ocean Boulevard to grab.

Your nightly light show sounds awesome!

That’s not a question and yes, it is! Each night around dusk, the SkyWheel lights up the sky! You can see the display up and down the boardwalk. You’ll want a camera for this one!
