SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A new attraction is now open in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park to celebrate the park's 150th birthday.

The SkyStar Observation Wheel is 150 feet tall at it's highest point, offering incredible views of San Francisco out to the Pacific Ocean.

But can you stomach a ride on "America's largest traveling observation wheel?"

We sent our cameras for a ride to give you a first-hand view of the passenger experience, and to show how high up it really feels. Check it out in the video player above!
