it is a fantastic attraction to have in Torbay. The wheel is huge and only moves slowly, so it's great for taking in the wonderful views and taking photos.

Moved to paignton just over 2 years ago and can see "Torquay eye" from our kitchen window. When our friends came to visit we decided to have a go! Value for money! And the gift shop!!

We visited Torquay in Nov 2018 and watched this attraction being dismantled over the course of 3 days, not sure if it was for servicing or if it was being taken away forever..worth checking if that is what you ar visiting for

This is a must when visiting Torquay! The lovely weather enabled us to have perfect views around the bay, at night time the wheel is illuminated and looks wonderful. Highly recommend

This experience was ok. Nothing spectacular. We didnt have to wait to long as we went first thing in the morning. The wheel went around 3 times which was a bonus. It was a clear day for us so we have nice enough views. Again...More

Well worth a visit to the Riviera Wheel. Priced fairly at £6 per person and we were on for approximately 10 minutes (the wheel goes around twice) Brilliant views of Torquay !We will go on again on our next visit.

It was ok and I enjoyed it and not too expensive. However the views aren't as good as you would expect and the staff don't speak English which is a bit of a worry.

We chose a crystal clear day to do this experience. It was totally wonderful views spectacular. You go around twice and is very good value. The only slight negative is it’s fairly difficult to get on and off very steep steps. Only criticism well worth...More

Hi, unfortunately the wheel has been disassembled as it's the end of the season, but it's being reassembled in Plymouth for the winter season, but will be back next summer in Torbay I think
