It's not open until 11 and queues can be horrendous. A complete rip off! You go up and just do two revolutions and then it's over. 15 minutes from start to finish! If you don't go on a crystal clear day you'll struggle to see much anyway. Buy a combined ticket with the Sea Life Park for a bit better... More

We came here today as we had visited sealife and the tickets were included in the package. The view is impressive and you have plenty of time to see everything with 3 x 360 degree rotations. The greatest drawback was that we could not hear a word of what was being said due to the loud talking of children. I... More

Beautiful view from the top of course on a clear day. the dome turns a 180 degrees.i think that is right, quite slowly so you have plenty of time to have a good look around. Moves up slowly and down the same no jumps and bumps, price reasonable.

We got this tickets included in our entry into the Sea Life Centre. Though we didn't have to que and were taken straight onto the trip we hated having a forced photo. The ride itself the row of benches are tight and I have poor mobility so struggled to get all the way round they were also a little uncomfy.... More

I'm afraid I barely saw the view because by the time I'd got to the top I was on the verge of having a seizure; brought on by the ludicrous routine we had to go to to get to the top and the awful, over-bearing, too loud piped music. I couldn't wait to get off.

As we walked in.. the famous tatty green screen we dread was in our sights! We declined.. and if looks could kill from your staff!! Wow.. wasn't... More

We brought our ticket at 14.02 (time on receipt) did the 'experience', walked across the car park and where back in the car at 14.20. We didn't have a commentary, in fact the only thing we did hear was the operator reporting there was a leak above the door. Total waste of money, I am only glad that we didn't... More

Staff were great, very welcoming & helpful. It was a cloudy day but we could still see for miles. They take your photo before you go in & view on the way out. We didn't purchase ours as it wasn't a good photo. Kids really enjoyed it (ages 5,6,7&9).
