Booked online and received a super group discount. Made plans for our group to arrive at the i360 for midday on a sunny Sunday. All present and accounted for, we entered into the flight departure, went through the customary bag search, two of our group had sneaky cocktail cans within their bags so these were removed and labelled up with a raffle ticket for later collection - makes a change as normally in venues you are asked to either put them in the bin or drink them there and then - good effort by i360 with this one! We ventured out onto the viewing platform before 'take off' and ample photo opportunities with both the sea view, the previous flight taking off and super selfies on the oversized and little deckchairs provided. We then boarded the flight and were all surprised how spacious the 'doughnut' was, lovely clear windows (mind the reflections for those keen photographers) and ample seating around the centre. Take off was mild & gentle, you don't even realise you are moving until you look at the surrounding buildings. The views are superb with a 360 panorama and on a clear day (which we were grateful to have) you can see for miles around. The onboard bar is well stocked but from what I could see, only alcohol was available - it would have been nice to have a coffee!! Coming down was more noticeable but only due to the wind outside, otherwise as smooth as possible. Exit is made at ground level so you don't mix with the next ride and you come out into the shop, cafe and photo collections area (if you partook in the initial photos). The shop had some interesting souvenirs if that is you thing and the erstwhile members of the group went to retrieve their cocktail tins - and came back with them - another star in the book for excellent customer service. Will definitely return and look to book the evening flights - to watch the sunset from that height would be superb!!

Decided to go for this on our second visit to Brighton but have to say we expected to be disappointed! Quite the contrary - it was a stunning experience and worth every penny. The cocktail bar deck area was just beautiful and the ride tranquil and surreal. We were lucky with the weather mind you - may not have felt worth it on an overcast day in the rain!

What a view! From take off to landing, this ride was so quiet and smooth. Reasonable price. Plenty of space and time to take photos of the entire Brighton. Really enjoyed the ride.

I went for a delicious afternoon tea at the restaurant at the i360. The views from our table were amazing. The service from Simon and Ashley was wonderful and the staff were all so friendly. The brioche buns were a nice surprise and the scones and desserts were lovely. I would highly recommend a visit.

Positives.
Really enjoyed this little trip up on the BAi360. If you don`t mind heights...its a must.. The dome is massive and plenty of room to walk about and take stunning pictures of the views before you. Don`t look down though... look ahead..lol..!!!!

Negatives - Only up in the air for about 20 mins - Some say 50 mins..but 30mins of that is being asked to arrive 30mins waiting on the ground before your flight time.

£10..for a glass of wine..??? Not for me thanks..!!!

With a concession.. I paid £31.00 for the two of us.. A bit expensive for a total 20mins (incl going up...holding up there . coming down)...but some may say the expericence is worth it.

Hello Thedaddy4737 and thank you for taking the time to review your visit to the i360. We're delighted that you enjoyed the experience. Our standard advertised flight time is 25 minutes and we ask all of our customers to arrive 30 minutes beforehand in order to complete a security check. The safety of our visitors and staff is our highest priority. Therefore, security checks are obligatory to ensure the safety of our customers on board the pod I’m sorry to hear you felt the price of our on-board drink were too high. At British Airways i360 the quality and sustainability of the products we offer on the pod is exceptionally important to us. Therefore the majority of our drinks are locally produced in the South Downs region, as we love to support local business and reduce our carbon footprint. As a result prices can be slightly higher than your average. Jason.
