Greater Cincinnati families loved the SkyStar observation wheel so much - it's here to stay!

Don’t worry about missing your chance to take a spin around the SkyStar — it is not going anywhere any time soon.

While many locals were getting ready to bid the giant observation wheel “goodbye,” the observation wheel has been so successful and well received in Cincinnati, that it is here to stay permanently! Head down to 55 East Freedom Way to take a ride in one of 36 climate-controlled gondolas, and soar almost 15 stories above Riverfront Park. Taking a ride on the SkyStar means seeing some of the best river and city views in town including Covington and the John A. Roebling Bridge.

Hours are Sun 10 a.m. – 10 p.m., Mon – Thu 12 – 11 p.m. and Fri – Sat 10 a.m. – 12 a.m. Find out more by calling 833-269-7827 or visiting skystarwheel.com.
