One of the best value for money rides I've been on! Terrific ride with at least three revolutions and a wonderful commentary! Friendly staff and clean and comfortable. Excellent views across Brighton and the Pier.

Brighton from a different perspective - and you get to see the view three times round. The staff were friendly. On an October Sunday morning there was no queue. it costs £8 per adult. The commentary is good. Well worth a visit.

Although the wheel is enjoyable it is not as good as we had hoped. The pods seat 4, we had a VIP pod which is quite nice with leather seats, cup holders and a table. The floor is clear Perspex but you can't really see through it as its all scuffed up. If you pay for the VIP experience you... More

I booked a VIP Experience for my boyfriend and I. After booking online I called to check timings and I was advised that we can turn up any time as long as it is by the last rotation. I checked at it said 11pm. I thought great we can go for dinner and then go on the wheel. We turned... More

Well, just another wheel along the seafront but on a nice day it is a very nice ride especially if you get to have a cabin to yourself and your companions. I can see how chaotic it would get if there were a lot people waiting to get on. Nice views of Brighton and my wife and I both enjoyed... More

Although the wheel allows a good view across the sea and some of the city centre, it is almost always empty and, I think, overpriced. My experience saw me receive an extra few turns, which although was generous of the operators, meant that the narrating tape was out of sync with your surroundings.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2014

Didn't actually go on it as I found the pricing expensive for 3 rotations. I'm sure that people who have reviewed it that have been on it are correct about the experience, but when I went there was no-one on it. But if just one person wanted to go on then they have to run it. Can't see the economic... More
