  • It was a great experience. It cost us $12CAD each and was well worth it. If you like the see a gorgeous view, I totally recommend this.  more »
  • Highly recommend riding the Skywheel at night. Great view of the city. It's pricey for how long you actually ride. I think we went around 3-4 times.  more »
  • It was my kids' first time on it and they had a blast. It was busy (Family Day long weekend) so the wait was long but not unbearable. The length of the ride was worth it for the money. I think we went...  more »

  • Great experience. Much cheaper than I expected, and wonderful views. I am as shocked as anyone when I say it was well worth it to go on the ride. The kids (6 & 4) loved it too. The glass was not super-awesome for sunset photos tho, so don't expect great shots, but if you are willing to put the camera down, its aces.
  • The line up wasn't long, but it still worked out to about a 15 minute wait. The staff were friendly if not a bit quiet. The ride itself was nice, but short. It advertises 3 rotations, it was more like 2 + loading. I found the price a bit steep for what you get out of it, but it did offer a very nice view.
  • Very comfortable cabins. Went here with my mom and the views were gorgeous! The staff were friendly and professional. The lines weren't long and the price was not that expensive - definitely a nice experience!
  • You get a nice view, it's not meant to be a thrill ride. I may be difficult to impress, but it really wasn't all that exciting. It moves really slowly so you have more time on the ride (this is good). Still somewhat of a classic attraction for Clifton Hill and it's not unaffordable, especially with the pass. I'd imagine it'd be good for kids.
  • Even though 12 dollars gets you about three turns around the wheel, the views are amazing. I highly recommend to go at night, the lights are astounding.
