About
Located at the iconic Central Harbourfront, the Hong Kong Observation Wheel offers spectacular day and night views of Hong Kong’s famous skyline and much more. Our ferris wheel rides are priced at just HK$20; as we want to make the experience affordable for all to enjoy. Online reservation is also available to ensure a smoother experience. With just a quick stroll from the Central/Hong Kong MTR Station and Central Ferry Piers, you will not only be greeted by our Ferris wheel, but also an open lawn, yummy snacks and free healthy initiatives at our wellness-themed park: AIA Vitality Park. The AIA Vitality Park hosts a variety of classes and events including fitness classes, yoga, kickboxing, swing dancing and even Capoeira. We will continue to introduce new elements to this iconic landmark including a Classic Carousel which is now open to public.

Top ways to experience Hong Kong Observation Wheel and nearby attractions

The area
Neighbourhood: Central
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 quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
How to get there
  • Hong Kong • 5 min walk
  • Central • 7 min walk

    Nice and Memorable Experince
    It was a memorable experience with the family. We took a lot of pictures there because the view was stunning. Rides are also nice they enjoyed a lot with the rides. The prices are not that much expensive. Hope to be back again soon with the family.

    Beautiful sights
    The top of the ferris wheel allows you stunning views over Victoria Harbour (particularly at night), so it's well worth the £2 entrance fee. You have to usually share your carriage with other people and there are also long queues (we waited 30 minutes to get on), so ensure you have a fan & lots of water with you. Well worth a visit here.

    A private cabin with stunting view
    Very nice view on top. the ferries wheel make 3 turns. Went at 7plus pm. Book the private cabin 160 HKD. I find it worth it as my whole family are inside the cabin without any stranger. We can keep taking pictures and move around in the cabin . Waited for maybe 15mins to board the cabin. A very nice experience for my boys

    Hong Kong from above
    The famous ferris wheel of Hong Kong waterfront. The wheel is one of the best venue to view Hong Kong island and its skyscrapers from high ground. The queue can be long because the wheel moves slowly but the patience spent queuing is rewarding.

    Boring
    The wheel stops most of the time and there isn't that great of views from it. Given that your viewpoints are narrowed down to where you're seated so if you're in a big group or wanting to really appreciate the scenery in privacy I'd recommend booking the whole gondola. Each gondola holds 8 people. The festival activities going on around it makes this wheel worth visiting. Queues take upwards of 15 minutes, recommend buying tickets in advance.

    A cheap way to get a great view.
    For the price of 20 HKD per person, you get to go around 3 times and see a great view. It is worth it if the lineup isn't huge. You can book the whole carriage for yourself but that will cost you 130 HKD.
    Hi CanuckJames, Appreciate your time to leave us a review. As we can get fairly busy during key holidays, we do recommend booking online to save time. Also to clarify a private gondola is HKD 160 and can accommodate up to 8 people.

    HK Wheel - great experience
    How good is this - so cheap as well HK$20 per person. Adjacent to the HK harbor - amazing views from the wheel. There are many shops and other things to do around the wheel. Easy access from the ferry services or Metro - or a wonderful walk along the waterfront on the HK island side of the harbor.
    Greetings gcrefs, we want to thank you for the review! We are glad you enjoyed your visit with us and hope to see you again soon. We often host interesting events and offer free wellness classes at the AIA Vitality Hub so do catch them if you have the chance.

One of the least expensive attractions in Hong Kong, close to the pier, bus and MTR stations. Not a long line and easy to access

Taking the wheel in the evening is not a good idea. The musty glass prevents you from getting decent photos and while the view is reasonable, it's far better during the day.

We joyfully brought our friends to the Ferris wheel, only to have a disappointing journey. After buying the tickets that day, the staff responsible for checking the tickets had a terrible attitude - arrogant, lazy, and spoke to guests with a dismissive tone. Our initial excitement quickly faded away. We initially thought that it was just their attitude towards us, but we witnessed the same behavior towards other guests as well, which was truly disheartening. We hope this issue is addressed.

In terms of the hardware, the QR codes they asked us to scan were already worn out and unreadable.

Waited 25 minutes and did not know we had to turn the AC on when we got on the car. Good view and worth trying.
