We spotted this big wheel and decided to give it a try if there was not a queue. When we arrived at the ticket office the queue was short and we decided to try it out. Big mistake! Despite the lack of queue we had to wait a long time to actually board the wheel. The reason this was a problem was down to the fact that a large number of empty pods went past without the staff admitting anyone. None of the staff seemed terribly friendly or gave an explanation as to why they were only admitting people to certain pods. There was also no explanation before boarding that the we would be going around 4 times - which would have been useful to know. The good thing was that we were shown to a pod on our own despite there being quite a big queue by the time we got on. The first couple of times round we really enjoyed as you got to see some good views. However, once you have seen the view a couple of times there isn't much else to see. On the third and fourth times around the wheel stopped right at the top and we were sat there for ages. What didn't help was the sound of the machinery whirring but nothing happening as this made it sound as if the wheel was stuck. My husband, who is normally pretty good with heights started to get rather anxious and was not happy to go round a fourth time. I think we were both glad to get off the wheel. I wouldn't recommend this - save your money and enjoy the views from a different perspective
