The Hep Five Ferries wheel is located just on top of the Hep Five shopping mall and it's very convenient to get there and take a spin. The views are great and I enjoyed the time there.

The Hep 5's been around for decades, and it's actually cheap enough now to be bothered with. I think around the 2000's it was almost $20 to ride, but now at $6-7 it's cheaper (I think that's the price now). Needless to day, in addition...More
