“Pretty at night”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Just went on this ride last night. We had discount tickets but I would not gone at full price of $15 each. Brisbane city looks pretty from the wheel at night but you can just go for a walk along the south bank board walk for the same feel of the city. Souvenir photo pack is $35. There is never any big queues for this attraction, I guess the price says it all.

“Wheely good”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

As first time visitors to Brisbane , we found this a good , informative ride. There were enough rotations to ensure that the key landmarks were all seen.

“Too expensive”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

The wheel of Brisbane in the South Bank precinct is set up as a tourist attraction, however we found that the cost of going on it was prohibitive. Sure you may get an elevated view of the city, but there are plenty of other places where you will find an equally good viewpoint of the CBD. Save you money and buy an ice cream.

“Not worth the time or money”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I went at night it cost $15 but was not worth it. There is not much to see once you are up there. It does four rotations but there is not enough to see to warrant it. It doesnt go high enough to get a view of the whole city.

“New view of Brisbane”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

The Wheel of Brisbane is certainly a unique way of seeing Brisbane. It may be worth shelling out for those who either have never been to Brisbane or have seen Brisbane from every other conceivable angle. But let's not pretend that this has any traction on some of the true world icons like the London Eye or Singapore Flyer which dared to offer more of an experience than a sideshow Ferris Wheel and are reaping the subsequent benefits.
