You can use Atlanta's Ferris wheel for your baby’s gender reveal party


Many parents-to-be put a lot of thought into how they tell their loved ones what gender their baby will be.

The reveal can be as simple as the color of cake beneath a layer of icing, or as involved as getting Atlanta United players to kick tiny powder-filled balls

But did you know the lights of SkyView Atlanta can help facilitate revealing the big news? The Ferris wheel will shine either pink or blue, highlighted against the backdrop of thousands of other downtown Atlanta lights.

A SkyView video of a recent gender reveal event shows the ride’s lights alternate between pink and blue for about two minutes before going completely white. A few seconds later, the Ferris wheel bursts back to life, bathed in blue.

SkyView also has an onsite private event space and catering add-ons for styled events and parties, such as engagements, announcements and sporting events, that incorporate the wheel. Pricing varies based on client preferences, starting at $250.
