This is just like another wheel, although the view from the top is quite panoramic the ride does not offer any 'oomph' factor especially if you have visited the Skypoint Observation Deck already. Kids will still like it though !

Waste of time just a silly excuse for money grabbing. Views are distoted and at night u may aswell look out to sea.

The wheel is now in Mexico and no longer on the Gold Coast ! The council decided it was too costly to run. Sorry everyone
