We got 5 goes round. Air Conditioned (very well). Saw lots of Liverpool. I could have heart radio commentary if I wanted. Very cheap. No queue. VIP Option!!! (Chocolate and Champagne) bit expensive, so we went in a normal pod. I am scared of heights but I was okay on here because it took you round smoothly (no jolts!) Fairly... More

We were given five spins around the wheel one evening at dusk. So, we saw Liverpool lit up at night. The trip was alright, but it was expensive for what it is. (In my opinion, the Radio Tower's still a better view, but there's some decent views here over Albert Dock.) The price was 9.00 per adult ticket. There's commentary... More

Worth going on for the views but a bit expensive and would also avoid I you are scared of heights. We went in the evening with not a cloud in the sky and you can see for miles.

I think this is worth going on if you are a local or a tourist for a one time novelty. I really enjoyed it as you get to see so much. Especially on a rare clear day you can see for miles all across the city in all directions and over to the Wirral and even Wales. I'm not convinced... More

This is a very good attraction with fabulous views of this great city and indeed The Wirral and Wales. We got to go round 5 times which gives you ample opportunity to see all the wonderful sights, my particular favourite being The Ferry Cross The Mersey as it went about its journey. There is excellent commentary in the Pods and... More

For the price you pay it is not really worth it. Go round on the wheel three times and thats it. Could do with making a bit more interesting! Listening to two radio DJ's as the "Guides" is pretty pathetic also. Extremely expensive photos then when your finished. The pic was ok and we bought a couple of small ones... More

Ride itself was very good, five times round the when for £9.00. Comentary throughout the ride. But staff and policies let it down. I was taking my disables niece on the ride for a special occasion, I asked if they had a policy for disabled riders, as they advertised senior citizens and student. The young male in the kiosk said... More
