It’s a wonderful experience, don’t miss it. The views from the wheel are just stunning during the day and at night. There are views of table mountain and the harbour that have to be seen from on high.

An experience to be 'ticked off' when in Cape Town and as part of a V&A waterfront visit rather than making a special trip. We had the benefit of no queues but maybe a shorter experience as no pauses to left other travellers off. Several...More

Going in circles never felt so good. Each cubicle is private, air-conditioned, and has high visibility, and allows for your 10 minute ride. The harbor, nearby hotels, mountains and the terrain can be appreciated in a new way.

Centrally located in the V & A Waterfront, this Ferris Wheel is a bit old-school but still quite enjoyable. Not nearly as impressive as say the London Eye or Vegas’ High Roller, it still manages to satisfy. You get great views of Table Mountain and...More

A comparatively small wheel but does give you good views of the waterfront area. Queuing and number of roations for your money are a bit haphazard.

We rode the wheel at sundown and truly enjoyed the views. They let you go around quite a few times so you can see everything, especially if you switch sides halfway through.
