Once I downloaded the app, it was easy to access it upon arrival to the Capital Wheel attraction. Such a great experience for my niece and nephews.

We had a wonderful time. MY Husband wanted to ride the Capital Wheel for his Birthday and the experience was Great.

Was a good experience. I enjoyed so much with my friends, also after that we drink some beers at the bar.
