The Design

Engineered to perfection – This graceful giant wheel is almost completely silent in operation and features the very latest in observation wheel technology and is beautifully engineered to a high specification.

Riding experience – A trip on a the wheel takes approximately 12 minutes and offers a birds eye view of the surroundings whilst being lifted almost 60 metres into the sky.
