Visited on a Monday so there were no queues to navigate through. It is a bit of an elongated route to get to the actual attraction plus the ticket office can be easily missed as you meander your way though floors, escalators and sanction ropes.

This is my new experience in Macau Activity. From the Golden Reel that you can see Macau city in the highest building. You can by the photo and souvenir but it is too expensive that I think.

The whole process was quite quick, from buying a ticket to queuing up for the ride. The view was fantastic even though it does not go like an 8-shape. Good experience. Will recommend this!

Book thru Klook for cheaper tickets. Go around 6-7pm, no que / crowd on weekdays. Good views from all around Macau. Go dare yourself to stand on the glass bottom panel. Good for kids and elderly. Short ride but still enjoyable.

It was my first time to ride an 8 shaped ferris wheel and the experience was okay. It was a bit pricey (100hkd) for a few minutes ride, only one round. Above you’ll get a panoramic view of some parts of the Cotai strip. We...More

Got a complimentary ticket from buying the ticket for The House of Dancing Water. The concept itself is pretty cool as I have never ridden a 8-shape wheel before. The view was just fair, and it is not worthy to go if you need to...More

Took the ferris wheel and the view was amazing:) the waiting time for it was not long so everything was settle really quickly. However, the ride was quite short. All in all, it was worth it for the view:)

If your parents enjoy walking, it is a short and enjoyable walk, much of it indoors so that you can enjoy climate control, people watching, and shopping. The way to the Golden Reel is well marked, and the uniformed staff in... More

It depends. You have to queue up for the ride. They usually put you with someone else to make 5 to 6 people in one cabin.
