Located within the V&A Waterfront surrounded by numerous bars, restaurants and hotels is the Cape Wheel. Not the largest wheel on the planet but well worth going on for the views.

Find yourself at the Waterfront and all want to try something different? Try taking a ride in the wheel.. no queues so not too worry about booking the wheel... take some snacks in as it is a 30min trip around

It was decent but not great. You can go ahead and experience once for the views from top. If you are doing helicopter then skip this.

Right on the V&A waterfront. Not the largest Wheel I have ever seen but good sized. A strong tourist attraction in its own right. Personally, I like to see the Wheel more at night with its vibrant white lights that light up the whole waterfront...More

At night the Cape Wheel is lit up and visible from far. In the day the view from the top of the wheel is breathtaking. Well worth the money.

We rode at night and the lights were spectacular. They also offer some nice photo options for a sweet keepsake. And it is reasonable.

The Cape Wheel is inexpensive and a fun place to sit for a bit after wandering through the mall and take in the view of the Victoria and Albert Waterfront. We enjoyed it and felt it was worth the money.

Comfortable cabins and the view is great! Good value as you get three full circulations in each ride!

While the wheel isn't that high, it did provide a good view of the harbor and surrounding area. It is located in V&A Waterfront. I didn't think it was expensive. One day is discounted, so if you are visiting for several days, you could take...More
