Since September, 1st 2017, the Big Wheel of Montreal has been put into operation. With 60 meters of height; the equivalent of 20 floors, you will have a fantastic panoramic view of the Old Port, the St. Lawrence River and the city. The majority of the cabins (42) have very comfortable seats for 8 people, in ultra-clear tempered glass that will protect you from UV rays and they are air-conditioned in both summer and winter. It was built by a Dutch company, the Dutch Wheel. The site is not yet finished but there will be a bistro, a bar and cafe on site.
Check the website for the schedule of the year.
There are also VIP cabins and private cabins.
Take both experiences, you will have a very different outlook during the day and night, it’s worth it with or without good weather!
