Best Ferris Wheel Ride While-You-Wait (2008)

TOYS"R"US

It ain't no Cyclone, but if you can stand the snail's pace walk through tourist-ridden Times Square and the inevitable lines that snake around the ground floor, the Ferris wheel at TOYS"R"US is well worth it, surpassing even FAO Schwarz's Big-era oversized keyboard as the best toy shop attraction in midtown. The multi-tiered store is a wonder in itself, but leaving your shopping bags behind and letting the (air-conditioned) wind comb through your hair as you climb to the top for a view of the Barbie floor—now that's entertainment.
