Takes about 40 minutes for the ride. It is a very smooth ride and gives you a good view of the river and city.

Queued for half an hour, and the ride took another half. Full of beautiful lights during the night. Overall view from top is nice but not much things to see. But my daughter loves it.

The Eye is one of Tianjin's most popular tourist attractions. It offers nice views of the city from above. We originally planned to go at night, but when we got there the line was ridiculously long (it was the weekend of Tomb Sweeping/Qingming Festival). Instead, we went back the next morning. We waited in line for about an hour, and... More

It was a cool thing to do. It takes about a half hour to go all the way around. The price was ok. We went in the evening when there was a lot of people. So we had to wait in line for a long time. (Good thing they had music videos playing in line) The view was pretty great... More

Was expecting something more for this attraction. We bought our tickets RMB70 each and waited in line for less than 5 minutes before getting into the capsule. It was very small and had barely any ventilation. There were a total of 7 people in the small capsule. The weather was very misty and there is almost no view to look... More

I went with friends just to see the view from the top of the wheel, its pretty good although some buildings were not visible wither construction or clouds. It is relatively expensive compared with other attractions in Tianjin. But worth visiting.

Yes, you get a good view, but it is not the best place to get a good view from, and it is not especially cheap. Have a drink at the top of the Tangla hotel if you want a view.

Its good, but was not as i had expected!! You can see entire Tianjin from it.. A bit disappointed because of i wanted a little thrill.. You have to share ur compartment with strangers who usually don't speak english..

If you want to see the city this is a great viewing place. Also part of seeing Tianjin I took the boat there which was also nice. A good combination

Filled to the brim with matching couple, wearing couple t'shirts. not that I don't mind but, in the compartment, my friends and i had to witness couples having an moment together, which was pretty awkward. Too many people go there so you have to share your compartment.
