    Go for for rocking cages, and try not to think about the fact that this thing is nearly 100 years old ;) The view to the ocean and Manhattan is stunning, so try for a golden hour/sunset ride.

    Highly (ahem!) recommend the outer wheel, stationary cars for the longest and highest view of the oceanside scene. Take a deep breath if your car stops at the peak, as it did on my ride w/a friend.

    The Wonder Wheel has been in operation since 1920 & was designated a NYC Landmark in 1989. It is 150 ft tall, holds 160 passengers with 8 stationary cars & 16 cars that slide along serpentine tracks.

    there are a couple of photobooths inside coney island. one of the easiest to find is this one right in the middle of it all: next to the wonder wheel. (only open in the summer)

    The Ferris wheel first opened in 1920, making it the oldest ride in Coney Island, and the spectacular views from the top take in a long stretch of the shoreline. Read more

    There are two lines: one for swinging cars and one for stationary (which is often shorter). Whichever you chose, be sure to snap a pic from the top! Fun fact: The Wonder Wheel weighs 400,000 pounds.

    So slow, but where else have you ever seen Ferris wheel cars that actually slide back-and-forth independently on separate rails as they continue to go around the circle? Old-fashioned fun

    Ride the wheel. Doesn't matter how old or young you are--it's really fun and different than any ferris wheel you ever rode. It's a great memory!

    Great family place for kids of all ages! Friday nights during the summer they have spectacular fireworks!

    1918 steel makes this scarier than your standard ferris wheel. White cars don't swing (haha), and the views are great.

    Make sure you get on one of the red or blue swinging cars for the full experience. The yellow cars are for the less adventurous.

    OMG!! Best employees ever!!! Lost my phone here! Didn't realize it til after I left the park - about an hour later... long story short.. got my fone back the next morning.. on July 4th!!

    A great place to bring the kids after the aquarium. Lots of small child size rides - just buy a ticket for yourself and your child to ride.

    Opt for the swinging cars - they're pretty fun. Either way, you'll get some cool views from the top.

    The iconic Ferris wheel, the Wonder Wheel is shown at the beginningof the movie and the end of the movie the Warriors.

    They've never had an accident... even though you might feel like you're about to go flying out of the swinging cars!

    Don't bother with the stationary cars. The swinging ones are where it's at.

    When you go all the way to the top you really get to see the real beauty of Coney Island

    "Swinging" is not for the faint-hearted (especially on a windy day)!

    Seen at the beginning of the film, this is the landmark that the Warriors associate with being home.

    No age/height rules on the bad boy. Want to take your 4 month old baby on the swinging car, go ahead.

    Great views from the top, but you're swinging almost the whole time. HANG ON!

    Go swinging – it's an experience on a big wheel you'll have nowhere else.

    Go for the fixed (non-sliding) cars -- much better views.
