Norfolk’s Waterside District will be the home the city’s newest entertainment attraction, SkyStar at Waterside.
Arriving May 2018, the 137 foot high wheel will be located adjacent to Waterside District and offer individuals, groups, and companies a brand new entertainment option.
The wheel features 36 climate-controlled, private gondolas that will gently lift passengers 12 stories above the Elizabeth River on a ride that will provide unparalleled views of Downtown Norfolk and surrounding area.
“Waterside District continues to transform Norfolk’s skyline and we are excited they are bringing SkyStar to our city. This attraction is the perfect compliment to Harbor Park, Town Point Park, Nauticus, and the Battleship Wisconsin. The excitement is building for what will be a memorable summer experience, “ said Mayor Kenneth Cooper Alexander.
The SkyStar Wheel at Waterside is scheduled to open May 2018. Ticket pricing, hours of operation, and party packages will be announced later.
