“Scary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Scary but a great view over Torquay harbour and town.
Not my favourite ride because not keen on heights but glad I did it.

“I Don't Do Heights!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

You get a few turns on this big wheel for £5 which ain't so bad really, the view is great on a clear day so avoid if a bit foggy! I wouldn't fancy being on it in wind n rain though!

I am scared of heights, but found this reasonably comfortable. But please turn the commentary off, it is annoying as hell.

“Dissapointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

A wonky wheel ride, not a match to London Eye. Waste of time and money. We could not see much different view than on ground

“Easter trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

I booked for this wheel for myself and my 2 daughters online before we arrived and saved ourselves some money. We went on Easter Saturday at about 11am and there was only a short queue. We had a gondola to ourselves. The views were gorgeous as it was a bright sunny day. We had 3 rotations. It was quite cold up there so wrap up, but well worth it.
