Capital Wheel coming to National Harbor in May 2014
A 175-foot 17-story observation wheel is coming to National Harbor set to debut in May 2014! The height is just short of the famed London Eye (443 feet), but the Capital Wheel will have some of the best views in the world. Riders will be able to see the Capital, the White House, Pentagon, Andrews Air Force Base. Construction of the wheel is already underway and will be lit with different colors for holidays and special events. The wheel will have 42 climate-controlled gondolas with each seating eight people, and expects between 600,000 and 800,000 people to ride the wheel each year. The estimated cost to ride the wheel will be $15 per person for a 90-second ride.
