“Scared to death”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

If your not the best with heights then give this a miss, no cues no waiting was straight on, very wet and windy, got four revolutions of the wheel, £8 each not bad at all, warm carriages with voice over, panic button which i contemplated hitting but managed not too, didnt get to see the sights with my eyes closed but defo worth a go.

“wheely good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

Its a bit of fun really. It tells you some history of brighton and you get to look up and down the coast giving you a different view of Brighton and Brighton Pier.

“Big Brighton Wheel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

First time we have been on this. Beautiful clear day. We didn't need to queue and got a pod to ourselves. Lovely views. It went round 5 times. Great to see Brighton high up. As it was clear we could see the Seven Sisters. Would definitely recommend this.

“Stunning Boxing Day Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

I loved it
Fantastic views on a clear sunny Boxing Day
would definately do it again. Loved the fact Steve Coogan is the recorded commentary.
Only criticism is they insist on taking your photo as you board the wheel and then try to sell a photo pack with keyrings etc on your departure. I just said no and the lady was not pushy at all.

“WOW”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

See Brighton from all directions, not cheap but we thought it was worth it. Go early to beat the queues and take a camera.
Quite fancied the idea of a private pod with the Champers, but couldn't justify that so waited 'til we got off before we hit the bubbles!
