“Good fun”
Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

It's like a closed in Ferris wheel really... Seems quite small, but good fun as it goes around at a decent speed and you get about 5 rotations - around a 15 minute ride. Fairly inexpensive for a tourist attraction. Good views over Brisbane with informative commentary along the way. We went about 11am on Sunday and only waited about 5 mins in the queue.

“Magic!”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

We took the trip when it was going dark and it was amazing! The experience goes for about 15minutes and you go around a number of times. Was happy to see the city from high up as we wanted to try hot air ballooning over the city however we ended up travel 2hr drive to Beaudesert. Will recommend this experience to family

“Great Activity”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Great way to view Brisbane - we decided to go at night which we enjoyed as it wasn't so busy and we got to see the city at night. It's a comfortable ride and you go around a few times which gives you the opportunity to really take in the city and swap seats for a different view each time. Afterwards we enjoyed a stroll along the water-front where there are a few spots to stop off and have a look.

“Pretty cool”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

We were wandering around West End and saw the Wheel. So, we wandered down the hill towards it. The Wheel is a 12 minute Ferris wheel ride in an air-conditioned gondola. The accompanying narration is pretty informative too. We went during the afternoon but were told the attraction is even more spectacular at night.

Its worth checking out...

“breath taking views”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

We had a gondola all to ourselves. Everyone was friendly and cheerful. Was a great way to relax and take in all the views of Brisbane and area, the whole time there's an audio recording telling you places to look at and some history. Fun for all ages!
