At long last, the SkyView Ferris wheel has finally arrived Downtown and could open its gondola doors as early as Sunday.

The ride, which is privately funded and had previously been approved by Atlanta City Council, has experienced numerous delays. But judging by Redditor Brian Culler’s above photo, the erected supports for the attraction could mean that things are finally back on schedule.

Once fully constructed, passengers will be able to hop aboard the 20-story ride for a cool $15. And yes, there will also be VIP packages available if that’s more your style.
