Seattle itself no longer has a proper amusement park, but there is a pier with a couple of rides on it, and that's kind of like an amusement park, right?

Miners Landing at Pier 57
(With special guest star, Goldballs!)

Miner's Landing looks great if you're unto kitsch. Which I am. So it looks great.

It seems like the place screams 'tourist trap', but in a slightly less creepy terrible way.

I prefer the term, "Oddventure Opportunity." :p

Miners Landing is a bit odd, but I really like Wings Over Washington.

Did you use you Player's Club card to get that VIP gondola?

fantastic update, love that one VIP gondola.

Did you have to share with any others, or were y'all the VIP-i-est?

Oh, the VIPpiest of VIPs. Of course, there were three of us, and there's only four seats in it anyway. But I believe that even on your own, you get the private cabin, free/included photo, t-shirt, and adult beverage, and are escorted passed the line. Of course, it's $50 per person, but you can't put a price on experience, right?

Or, rather, you can, and it's $50. :p

How long was the "round trip" on the Wheel? I did The Eye in London with TPR, but I can't remember how long that took for a full circle flight. Hmmm. The Japanese ferris wheels Ive ridden, were usually somewhere between 15-20 minutes, but that's those wheels. This was obviously a much longer time spent on it.
