Hundreds attend Atlanta Ferris wheel job fair

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of people lined up for job interviews on Wednesday for Atlanta's new Ferris wheel.

More than 50 jobs were up for grabs at the SkyView job fair taking place Wednesday at the Omni Hotel.

The available part-time and full-time jobs with the Ferris wheel -- due to open this summer -- include:

Wheel operator
Ticket seller
Wheel maintenance technician

Most of the jobs will pay between $9 and $13 per hour. Anyone interested in working for SkyView Atlanta is urged to fill-out an application in advance to expedite the interview process.  Applications can be found online at

SkyView Atlanta says the attraction will open on July 2 -- just in time for the Fourth of July holiday. The 20-story Ferris wheel will cost $13.50 for adults to ride and $8.50 for children. Discount tickets will also be offered to seniors and members of the military.

The 200-foot tall Ferris wheel will make its home in the southern end of Centennial Olympic Park, in what is now a public parking lot located next to The Tabernacle. It will be easy walking distance from World of Coke, The Georgia Aquarium, CNN Center, Phillips Arena, The Georgia Dome, and the Georgia World Congress Center.
