Seattle Great Wheel & Wings Over Washington
Located at the West end of Pier 57 on the Seattle waterfront, the Seattle Great Wheel opened in summer 2012. The 175-foot Ferris wheel features 42 Euro-style gondolas that are equipped with heating and air conditioning. The structure extends nearly 40 feet out from the pier, hovering over Elliott Bay. Dalton Electric Company was instrumental in the electrical design of this project and overcame many constructability issues bringing this high profile project in on time. We are proud to have been part of the construction team to successfully complete the largest Ferris Wheel in the United States ever built over water.
The Wings Over Washington-Flying Ride is also located on the west end of Pier 57. This Flying Ride is currently the most state-of-the-art theater in the world using 5K cameras; innovative art laser projection; drones for image capture; MUSHROOM VR™, and a ground-breaking surround sound system.
