The Pier's Ferris wheel has 40 gondolas, each seating up to 6 passengers. In the evening, the Ferris wheel's 40 spokes, spanning a diameter of 140 feet, are illuminated by thousands of sparkling lights.

Musical Carousel

Carousel Located near the Ferris wheel in Navy Pier Park, the musical carousel was designed exclusively for Navy Pier. It's a whimsical work-of-art that recreates the Pier's golden age of the 1920s when a similar attraction delighted another generation of visitors. The carousel's 36 hand-painted animals represent the different styles found throughout the history of carousels. Horses, chariots and a playful frog are just a few of the featured characters waiting to carry children of all ages. The hand-painted rounding boards at the top of the 44-foot carousel depict scenes of Navy Pier's history.

You must be at least 42 inches tall to ride the Musical Carousel. NOTE: If child is below 42 inches tall, child may ride free with a paid adult.
