We have been out to the Wheeler Ferris Wheel a few times. I like to go around sunset or at night when you can enjoy the Okc skyline. Lots of parking, food vendors and places to sit, the Wheeler District is constantly adding new things....More

This is a neat place to visit and the ferris wheel is a really fun way to see a lot of the city! This area is always different with food trucks and activites that change as well.

A quiet park to visit. There's a ferris wheel that was even operating in mid-November. Also there's some nice walking paths by the river and a concession stand. Lots of photo opportunities!

It was great to see this. I believe it has been in the back round of some movie sets. It has a lot of history about where it had been. Refurbished and great to see it at its new home.

It's a great spot to create great memories of your stay in OKC. Very photogenic place and great view of downtown OKC from this cute Ferris Wheel. It's not a big one but it's definitely a fun ride with a great view.

Between Joe's Beer bus and the Taco Bus, this is an terribly underutilized location. The ferris wheel, the river, the free entertainment, and oh, did I mention the Beer Bus and the Taco Bus? Friday nights. Ride your bicycle on the path, or drive down...More

On site I do not think they do. They sold snack food and non alcoholic beverages that I re-call. But when they have food truck vendors that come they might.
