Its worth every penny to take the ride. HK$20 is a good value although the duration is rather short, about 10 odd minutes.

With the metro to Central it is just a short walk to the pier where this big attraction is. Also next to the festival Clockenflap which is held every November. On this Ferris wheel we saw the city in another perspective!

Finally we headed here, with wife and two kids. The value is superb and yet the line was short to get on. We did purchase the tickets before hand and printed them. But don't bother as it is a hard to use homepage and cumbersome....More

We went on a Saturday morning around 11am. There was no line to buy tickets and although only 2 of us we decided to get a private gondola as it was only HK$160. Regular price is HK$20 for an adult so very good value. There...More

The ride was cheap - HKD20 per adult, HKD10 per child per ride. You get to view Hong Kong from a different view. It was short ride though. 3 rounds and you're done

Despite the lines, and waiting time, this really was a great way to see Honk Kong Harbour and CBD. A definite worthwhile alternative to the sky deck.

Hi AmandaR5740, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We do encourage booking your tickets online to save queuing time at the Wheel, especially during Hong Kong's hot humid summers.

The ride is about 15 min. You can enjoy three rounds on the wheel. Comfy and the queue is reasonally efficient. You can consider hiring the whole gondola if uou wont want to share with our tourists. Great view of Victoria Harbour and the two...More

This location is ever-improving and with hk$20 rides and a carousel, it’s a no brainer for a family visit. Tip: cool down nearby at the air-conditioned maritime museum in Pier 8 where there is tonnes of fascinating historical information and interactive features the kids loved!

Hong Kong's Ferris wheel only costs 20 HKD. It offers an unparalleled view of Victoria Harbour. However, the ventilation is pretty bad and AC is almost nonexistent. Sitting atop can be scorching.

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of

Hi Sacred21, popular times for the Wheel are usually 4pm till 11pm. The is usually less of a crowd at 11am when the Wheel opens. I'd recommend booking tickets online to reduce waiting time.

Yes, it re-open recently. Previously price is at HK$ 100 and now runs with another company and price is at HK20 only. Online booking is recommended. Kindly visit hkow.hk link for ticket, amazing view and definitely worth it.
