Navy Pier’s Centennial Wheel is an iconic part of the Chicago skyline and a treasured piece of Chicago cultural history. Soaring to heights of nearly 200 feet, the Wheel offers visitors unparalleled, 360-degree views of Chicago and Lake Michigan.
Pepsi Wave Swinger®
Standard Ticket: $8
The 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 alone or be accompanied by a ticketed adult.
Grab hold of the ropes and challenge yourself to climb to the top of these new interactive climbing walls.
