Sometimes it’s fun to play tourist in your own city, especially when you’re new to town! If you’ve just moved in, or are just looking for some local fun, grab tickets to ride The Capital Wheel. This unique enclosed Ferris wheel experience is an iconic part of our skyline that offers a truly magnificent vantage point of DC, The best part? Even on the hottest days, you’ll stay cool because every pod is air-conditioned!
We recommend grabbing your tickets in advance to secure your pod, and potentially get a great deal. Right now they’re running a lot of summer promotions that can make your ride even more memorable. The Golden Summer package includes two tickets for the Ferris wheel, as well as two drinks in souvenir cups and a photo! If that’s a little too touristy for you, go for the Seltzer Spin Double Package which offers two tickets for the ride and a bucket of five White Claw seltzers. If you’re looking to go all out, go for the VIP experience. It’s a VIP gondola with leather seats and a glass floor. Choose whatever strikes your fancy and get ready to see the city in a way you haven’t seen before!
