“Ok.”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Some good sights but not great.
Had better value for money.
The photographer was Spain in the backside. We didn't want the company photo but she wouldn't take no for an answer but she finally did !!!!
Expensive for what it is
Or maybe that's the reflection of Brisbane, not a huge place

“Great views but pricey”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Pretty much what you see is what you get...I have been on this 3 times now with the kids and to take family members on who are visiting me in Brissie. The first time I paid full price but the next 2 trips I got vouchers from Living social for half the price which was great value. The view from the top is amazing and I think you get between 3 to 5 revolutions of the wheel...it's all over in less than 10 mins. They do try to sell you an information book and photos but you don't have to buy them. I've only seen it really busy once where the queue was very long, most days you can get on fairly quickly, weekends are obviously busier than mid week. There is parking near by but you will pay a fortune for any parking in south bank, it's quicker and probably cheaper to get there by ferry. It's not on my "must do" list for things to do in Brisbane but if you are in South Bank and want to do the sights then it's ok....I think they would get more trade if their standard price was cheaper.

“Great trip but very expensive”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

The view and ride is great. As a local I found the price off putting. Possibly they're only targeting the tourists which is why it's alway empty. But i did enjoy the view during the day. Didn't take my interest to do it again at night.

“See Brisbane”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Our daughter loved this ride and it went a lot longer than we expected. The morning we went was clear skies and sunny which made the view very worth it, and it would be spectacular at night. We bought voucher through LivingSocial Deals which made it great value for money even for the VIP ride.
