At least the Cape Wheel is sensible priced unlike the London Eye (eye refers to the eye watering cost) and the Singapore Flyer. It is quite cool and worth a ride.

I waited for my turn to enter the carriage, it was a busy Saturday night. The locals and tourist enjoy the the Cape Wheel. The sunset view and nightlife activity is heartwarming.

If you want special memories of Cape Town, do the ride on the Cape Wheel....take the VIP cab. Start with some Pongratz and relax before you go on the wheel. Good music, stunning views.

Very much like the London Eye but the cars are smaller. Excellent view of Cape Town and bay and Table Mountain if the weather is good. They take you around about 4 or 5 times. Worth the money

its a very small wheel and no where close to London / SG or rest of the world. It is nothing more than a time pass for kids. would advise to avoid spending on this.

Wow what a way to have a perfect view of the whole city. If you scared of heights, why not get over them by getting on this? Great experience.

I defnitely expected a bit more out of this, it only went around 1 proper time...the rest of the time it was going around bit by bit and you had to wait, except for that I did enjoy the view.
