ATLANTA (AP) — One of Atlanta's newest attractions — a 200-foot tall Ferris wheel — has opened to the public.

SkyView Atlanta opened Tuesday afternoon and will offer riders a bird's eye view of the city during its 15-minute trips near Centennial Olympic Park.

According to the attraction's website, rides for adults will cost $14.45, $13 for seniors and members of the military, and $9.10 for children. Those prices include tax.

Each gondola is required to have an adult riding in it along with the children.

The wheel was previously in Paris and in Pensacola, Fla.
