Overall rating

4.1 / 5

based on 9 reviews

Arrived shortly after 10pm on a Saturday. Wait was only 20-30 minutes. Photo option while standing in line (plan for $18 or $36 addition if purchased at the end). Fully enclosed capsules are clean, air conditioned and comfortable with bright interior lights, if needed. Ride lasted at least 10 minutes, with a stop at the top. Great view of multiple ATL landmarks. Below illuminated horse drawn carriages go by, along with local cars showing off to crowd. Typical downtown city atmosphere in surrounding blocks, but easy to walk to from hotel.

Very good views of the Olympic Park. Baby carriages are left downstairs. Therefore, it does not matter if they are foldable or not. We took general admission and there is also air conditioning.

You don’t see to much but it’s a good experience! And it nice a cool in there for a warm day. They have VIP but we couldn’t figure out how to purchase VIP?? Still a good time with family.

Entry was so easy!!! Parking was very expensive, unless you’re planning to stay in the area for a few hours.

Nadeem...Great awesome guy. Next time we come back, we will recommend to see him again.
