5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Really enjoyed it although price a bit steep, esp for children. Fab views of Torquay and commentary as well.

“So much better than the balloon! Must see in Torquay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

We are residents and as such were appalled by our Council's approval of that ridiculous balloon! Happily, someone has had a brainwave & now we have the Wheel! This is a major improvement & has residents & tourists alike enthralled at the views. Long may this continue!

“Ecellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Good focal point overlooking the harbour, very good value (£5 per person at our visit), good views, up there long enough to take in the views, take photos & not too long if you do not like heights

“Wheely Good View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Now let's get this clear. I'm generally terrified of heights but this is the most sedate experience that provides great views and a very informative commentary that will make anyone look at Torbay in an entirely different way. Obviously best experienced on a bright, clear day.
