  • I am so scared of heights but this was fun. It gives a quick overview of the city and some really cool important places.
  • Great for kids I've been on it a few times it's friends who were from out of town. A little boring for adults but my little cousins loved it. The staff are fantastic and the views are awesome.
  • Took my fiance on the wheel for her birthday. It was a hot day but the wheel had air con so it was a pleasant escape from the scorching heat. The lovely view of the city from the top was absolutely gorgeous.
  • Awesome experience aboard this giant wheel. The staff is friendly and good. The announcement system in the gondola was good. They explained bits about the different views and landmarks seen from above. Truly worth the money. Highly recommended.
  • Nice view. Could have gone around a few more times. Friendly staff.
