Had to go on the wheel, it was great, views very lovely of the beach. It's about 12 minutes and goes round about four times. It's about £8 per adult. Steve Coogan commentates throughout. At the end there is a lovely album presented to you for £20 which is brilliant ,you do feel like buying but the whole experience can... More

A ride on the wheel comes at the cost of £8.00 per adult which is quite reasonable. The views are lovely and the commentary was easy to follow and helped to visualize where you were in relation to the landmarks of Brighton. Allowed for some great photo opportunities; especially from 50 foot up! Your photo is taken before you get... More

A ride on a giant wheel overlooking Brighton seafront offers some stunning views over perhaps one of the most beautiful seaside towns in the UK. If you have some affection for Brighton and have an interest in seeing it from a different perspective, then visit. But be warned - if, like me, you have a slight "nails scraping on blackboard"...

At the cost a £8 per adult this is great value for money. The views are very impressive and the commentary was great and easy to visualize where you were. Interesting anecdotal comments on the history of Brighton. I'm a great fan of the Regency period and Brighton was a popular holiday retreat for the flamboyant Prince Regent!

Don't understand why there are so many negative reviews - the wheel was a great addition to our trip in Brighton..Okay it's by all means not cheap but come on, what do you expect!? It was a warm day and so inside the pods it felt like a sauna..they say it's air-conned although to be honest, it didn't feel like... More

Enjoyable ride- and had 4 revolutions not the advertised 3! Great views in all directions and a good commentary by Steve Coogan. Worth the price- cheaper than London/Manchester.

Was expecting more after paying £22.50 for two adults and one child. Admittedly it was dark and wet, but we really couldn't see anything as the windows were all misted up. Why do they operate it after dark if there is nothing to see? It was over in less than ten minutes, then they tried to sell us a photo... More

Anything more than a puff of wind and I would have passed on this . It feels a little less safe than The London Eye , the pods are smaller and therefore don't have a centre seat - any movement in the pod is disturbing to those with a sensitive inner ear . Also disturbing is having to listen to... More

I rode the wheel with my two grandsons in August even though they are 5 and 18 months we thoroughly enjoyed it. There is not much to see they were more thrilled to be up so high. It is a shame that there is only the sea on one side however there were a few boats to be seen. The... More
