“not great”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

There was no queue but the wheel itself isn't really worth it. If you're going to go on it then go during the day - at night there's so much glare on the glass its impossible to get a picture. I found the pods quite small and don't really like heights so going round twice more than the informed 3 revolutions wasn't great. Looks good from the ground!

“Breathtaking Views!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Our family of 4 took the SkyWheel during the day and it was awesome! It's a bit pricey (which is normal for the area), but gave us one of the best views of the falls we had. I would recommend choosing this attraction over many of the costly entertainment attractions on the ground! And you go around for about 10 minutes. :)

“very nice veiw”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Not a fan of heights, but felt very comfortable and secure on this ride.And the veiw was very impressive. We went up at night time so we got to see the falls lit up which was beautiful. The sky wheel itself is very impressive esspecially at night when it is all lit up.The price was reasonable and felt we got our money's worth.Would definetly go back on this ride for the comfort and the veiw.
