£10 per person to go round 4 times and worth every penny. Got on at 8pm with 5 min waiting time and had a cabin to ourselves. It you want a fantastic view of the harbour and surrounding buildings do this!!

The Hong Kong Observation Wheel (HK$100 per adult, HK$70 per child) opened late last autumn at the new Central Waterfront and has taken rather mixed responses since that time.

In some ways we have found it a nice little addition to the recently developed waterfront area. Yet, we also feel that it fails to excite compared to the taller, more impressive rides you can take in cities like London and Singapore.

One of the nice things about the HK Observation Wheel is that we don't find much in the form of queues there during much of the day. As such, if you are planning to visit the waterfront area, you will probably not wait more than 5-10 minutes during normal days and weekends for a ride. We also like the views, which are better at night as you are less impacted by poor sky conditions and the buildings are more impressive to look at in darkness.

What we don't like so much about the Hong Kong Observation Wheel is how often it seems to stop. While not such a big deal in the end, it would have been better if this operated more like the London Eye where you have continuous, uninterrupted movement. Oh well.

In the end there is no doubt the Hong Kong Observation Wheel is fun but its not a world class ride nor will it likely become a major attraction in the city. It is just something worth trying if you really enjoy ferris wheels and plan to spend some time on the HK waterfront area.

This is a nice addition to the area where the Star Ferry and other boat transportation departs. We went during the day, but of course, the view will be more dramatic at night. But going on a Monday in the late afternoon, there was virtually no wait. The area was surprisingly quiet and restful. You can take a lot of photos and selfies with various background views. Also, you are very near a lot of great places to go, so it makes a nice component part of an outing.

The ride was boring. It constantly stopped for people to get on/off. Skip this attraction during your visit to Hongkong.

The Hong Kong Observation Wheel is a new addition to the city's harbor front but it seems to be dwarfed by the towering skyscrapers in the background and it is significantly smaller than its counterparts in London and Vegas. We went there at around noon time on a Wednesday and there were hardly any people but the attendant flatly refused to let us have a car to ourselves and we were forced to share one with two lovebirds who were none too happy with the intrusion. The wheel went around four times and while it was a bargain for the fares, it became somewhat tedious after seeing the same view over and over again. If you don't mind the crowd, I was told that the view was absolutely fabulous in the night time particularly when the Symphony of Lights was on.
