Waterfront Attractions


Located at the newly activated Waterfront Park (in front of Rio City Café), a visually-exciting and whimsical 65’ Ferris wheel and carousel, operated by Brass Ring Amusements, Inc, are both open daily at the Old Sacramento Waterfront.

Hours of operation for the Waterfront Wheel and Front Street Carousel will be Monday, Wednesday, Thursday from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m., Friday through Sunday from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. (Closed Tuesdays)

Waterfront Wheel

Offering fantastic views of the city atop the “Waterfront Wheel,” riders must be at least 44” to ride and in the same household in each open-air cart (that holds up to four people). 

To help keep the community safe, physically distanced line queues will be in place, carts will be sanitized regularly (with employee disinfecting of high-touch surfaces, restraints after patrons disembark, etc.), and contactless payment and admission will be available.

Front Street Carousel 

Riders must be 36″ height to ride alone. Children shorter than 36″ may ride if adult is standing next to them holding them as they ride (1 paid ticket allows for adult + child).

One way line queuing with physical distancing maintained and middle horses will be closed to riders, allowing only the inside and outside horses to be ridden for physical distancing on the ride.

Cost to ride the Waterfront Wheel or Front Street Carousel is $7 per rider.
