Soaring 175 feet above the Potomac River waterfront at National Harbor, The Capital Wheel, set to debut in May 2014, will join a growing number of large-scale observation wheels around the United States and the globe as an iconic, world-class attraction.

The Capital Wheel will have 42 closed, climate-controlled gondolas, allowing it to operate year-round. Each gondola seats eight. Sights visible from The Capital Wheel include the White House and Capitol, the National Mall, Arlington Cemetery and the lush parklands throughout the DC-Maryland-Virginia region.
