“Gold Coast Skywheel”
Review of Wheel of Surfers Paradise - CLOSED

Wheel of Surfers Paradise
Attraction details
Reviewed September 25, 2012

It is very surprised to me that there is very little information on this attarction in Surfer Paradise. It does not have much advertisement about it and the name seems not to be standardised. The travel booklet found in Surfer Paradise calls it Gold Coast Skywheel. The operation hour is little late in the evening for week days and 12 noon on weekend and Sunday.

We found this attraction on our way to the accommodation. We decided to visit it when we saw that there are 25% discount using offer from travel guide. The adult price is $11 per person.

This is 60m Ferris Wheel located in the heart of Surfer Paradise. It seemed not many tourists interested to ride this attraction and therefore there was no queue to buy ticket and most of the cabin were empty.

We ride on it at night. The glass was not clean and therefore unable to take clear photo from the cabin to capture the night view of surfer paradise. The wheel spinned about 5~6 rounds for a round of ride. The ride is about 15 minutes.

If possible, ride on the wheel in the afternoon shall see the scenary clearer.

We went just as the sub was setting and got lovely views to the river and beach as night fell. It was really very reasonably priced with students getting a child rate and a voucher in one of the gold coast magazines giving a further 20% discount!

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!
