Review of Wheel of Surfers Paradise - CLOSED

Wheel of Surfers Paradise
Attraction details
Reviewed September 21, 2012

The Wheel was across the road from our accommodation, so a real presence in the busy area. A beautiful view from the top and we were surprised that it run during the week as well as weekends. Well worth the small cost.

After dinner out, and seeing the wheel from our hotel, we thought we'd check it out and at $11 per adult and six spins around - it was well worth the money - very enjoyable!

We went up at night first and just loved seeing all the lights so had to return to do it all again in the day light and both times it was just an amazing experiance

As locals we drive past the wheel often so my sons decided they would like to go on the wheel and take their grandfather on it for a father's day surprise (he can see it from his 9th floor apartment). It was a lovely family experience - all four adults and 2 children fitted together in the same compartment. I was surprised at how queasy I felt the first time around - for me it felt really high and a bit scary, but the kids were fine and we loved looking at the very familiar area and picking out all the places we know. We had about 6 rotations on the wheel lasting 10 or so minutes and the wheel stopped for a while when we were at the top perhaps so we could really take in the view.

we where so excited to see the wheel from our room when we check in and then night tome can and all the lights went on and it looked beautiful on our second night we decided to go on it. was really well priced and there was plenty of room for us for adults true you can get the same views from you balcony but it was so nice to be on at night time and look at all the light and it was even better when they stopped as at the top for a while. value for money and good relaxing fun.
