“Big Wheel - hope it comes back”

Reviewed 25 November 2013

One of the better Big Wheel installations that seem to be popping up around the country. Problem is it's the end of the season but should be back next year. Good price for a reasonable amount of time. Customary picture taken but not hassled to buy. Fantastic view over the town and bay. Both granddaughters loved it.

This is actually a really good value attraction. I was expecting perhaps 2 times around for the £5 ... no we got 5 revolutions for a fiver per adult. That's not bad at all as it gave great views and there was a very interesting commentary which I was impressed with.
The Big Wheel is a great vantage point to get your bearings in Torquay and a few good photos.

Definitely worth doing. The trip is only a short one but the wheel completes the circuit 3 times making it good value for money.

We went based on a tripadvisor recommendation.

The commentary was very interesting.

excellent value for money. I took some foreign visitors to the bay and they all thought it was fantastic.

A bit scary for the fear of height merchants amongst us, especially in a wind but good fun and great views
