The Heart of Antalya 18 mins of stunning views

Billed as Europe’s second tallest and Turkey’s tallest, this 90m tall enclosed Ferris wheel is one of the most recent additions to the Antalya skyline.  The Heart of Antalya opened in August of 2019 and gives you a smooth and air-conditioned opportunity to view the incredible Taurus Mountains as they collide with the Mediterranean Sea.  Look the opposite direction for an unobscured view of the city center.  Because the attraction is incorporated with the Aktur Park amusement park, you could also tack on an afternoon or evening of amusement rides for all ages.  The wheel is lit up each evening with an extensive lighting rig producing a beautiful, constantly changing display. 

We visited on a late summer afternoon where there was no line, so our family of five had an entire cabin to ourselves.  Children under 10 were admitted for free with an adult.  The cabins were comfortable even in the intense summer heat.  Unfortunately, the material used for the windows seemed a bit scratched or smudged making it a little challenging to get completely clear pictures.  If you visit for the views and the opportunity to enjoy a smooth ride, then you will be very pleased. 

Situated near the local aquarium, the famed Konyaaltı Beach as well as a popular shopping mall, the Heart of Antalya is an easy and enjoyable add-on to your time in this part of the city.  When your ride finishes, there is a Robert’s Coffee located directly underneath the wheel for refreshments.  The Heart of Antalya opens in the afternoons from 3PM and closes at approximately 1AM in conjunction with the amusement park; always verify before you go as times quickly change depending on the day and season.
