Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

3 circuits for £20 each for 2 people .Miserable cashier, staff there not interested either just because it’s only a job for them.
Spoke to a few visitors to Bournemouth that asked what is was like they were all of the same mind
To expensive and not long enough ride. All said they would give it a miss because of this. Not recommended and that seems a shame.

There was left over food in the cabin. The wheel isn’t huge (which is fine) but if you’re only getting two rotations it is a spectacularly short activity. Terrible value for money.

It was a good experience, but disappointing that I couldn’t get a receipt when paying. Also, the person loading the gondolas was a bit irritated when I said I was on my own. But apart from that it was good and I enjoyed the experience. Even in the dark it was a great experience.

On a quiet and very windy day we ventured onto the wheel. Great views from the top and they granted my daughter’s request for a purple gondola - there were only two other people aboard. It does go very high and rocks so 8 yo was fearful at first. But after we rotated a few times she was happy. Not a place for vertigo sufferers.

Had to be done as daughter finishing 5 year stint at uni & never been on! Pleasant way to spend 10-15 mins & gave some nice views over the beaches & town.

This was a short but sweet activity to do for my birthday. It was £16 for two adults to go round twice, including stopping at the top and sides partway through the ride for a better view. It is not fully enclosed in and sways a lot in the wind, so be mindful if you’re afraid of heights! I believe the staff can also spin your cart if you ask them to, based on someone’s that we saw. The wheel is very similar if not the same as the one in Torquay as a reference point.

Poor value for what it is. £8 for adults. Today in Bournemouth it was rammed. If this attraction was a fiver it would have so many more takers and not just the odd couple every now and then. Not worth the money.

Quite enjoyed the ride. Don’t go on it if you will moan about the price. Yes it’s £8 a pop, you know this before you buy! We had a few revolutions and thought it was good fun, and pretty high. You get to see the beach and across town. Of course it’s not like London Eye etc, and again you pretty much know what you’ll see. Overall expensive, but glad we went on it, and ticked it off the list!
