Where is the best place to park?
If you’d like the easiest access to the SkyWheel, there is a paid parking lot right next door. Unfortunately, we do not own the lot so we can’t control the pricing and parking is limited. There are some metered spots all along Ocean Boulevard.

Anywhere from 2-6 people can fit at one time. And don’t worry, if there are just a few of you, no strangers will be put in with you. Each flight is your own private experience!
