At HK$20 it is a lot cheaper than many other wheels we have been on, but not really worth taking the gondola on a cloudy rainy day

This was a first today and with three rounds for $20 HKD well worth the money to see the harbor and skyscrapers from 60m up. Recommend

The price is very good value - HK$ 20 - for 3 rotations of the wheel. Reasonable views around the Central harbour area, but nothing too special. Queues for tickets and getting on the wheel were quite long - 10-15 minutes each.

Its worth every penny to take the ride. HK$20 is a good value although the duration is rather short, about 10 odd minutes.

With the metro to Central it is just a short walk to the pier where this big attraction is. Also next to the festival Clockenflap which is held every November. On this Ferris wheel we saw the city in another perspective!

Hi Sacred21, popular times for the Wheel are usually 4pm till 11pm. The is usually less of a crowd at 11am when the Wheel opens. I'd recommend booking tickets online to reduce waiting time.

Yes, it re-open recently. Previously price is at HK$ 100 and now runs with another company and price is at HK20 only. Online booking is recommended. Kindly visit hkow.hk link for ticket, amazing view and definitely worth it.
