Ride The Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier for Free!

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day it's true, but it's also National Ferris Wheel Day!

To celebrate, Navy Pier, Chicago’s mission-driven cultural district, is offering ‘wheel fun’ for everyone – couples and singles alike – including complimentary Centennial Wheel rides.

You can take your Valentine for a romantic ride aboard the city’s most famous wheel, which was recently rebuilt and features enclosed and heated gondolas and picturesque views of the skyline and lake from over 200 feet in the air.  You can also bring your kids!

Those interested in taking advantage of the #WheelWednesday free ride offer must RSVP online in advance   (DO IT TODAY!)  Free tickets are limited on a first come first serve basis.
UPDATE:  The free Centennial Wheel rides are now apparently sold out.  Put it on your calendar for next year! 
There are still tickets for Men Seeking Women for the event listed below.

Even if you don't have a Valentine, you can still participate!

In addition to the event above, there will be an evening singles speed-dating event on the wheel, called Spinning With Singles, which is followed by a singles mixer aboard a private yacht. That event includes food, open bar, and music by the appropriately named DJ LoveBug.  Registration is still open for men (which I guess means that the female registration is sold out.)
As you can imagine, it costs money to do this single mixer. REGISTER HERE.

And sorry, ladies, I won't be attending!  I already have a Valentine!  (I know you are disappointed!)

The free rides are all part of the Pier’s #WheelWednesday series, an initiative to make the attraction available and accessible to all by offering the community complimentary rides on select Wednesdays periodically throughout the year. ·For more information, visit www.navypier.org.
