The weather wasn't great when we went on the wheel but that was ok because the capsules are enclosed. The guy working at the wheel was friendly and we got to have an extra round because it wasn't busy. It is quite expensive for what...More

I moved to Manchester in August 2015 and Piccadilly gardens no longer has this ride installed. Just thought the site should be updated - the wheel was removed sometime prior to August 2015.

Great view of Manchester and not expensive for the ride! Very clean, safe, and extremely helpful staff! Take your camera and make sure you take lots of photos!

We booked a cabin for a hen party and it wasn't operating, can't get hold of anyone to get a refund, have e-mailed/rang and written!!!!! dreadful service and why isn't this being monitored by the council, oh wait! they take your money for nothing too.

Great views and a bit scary. I closed my eye the first few times at the top, but if you are not afraid of heights, go on it.

I booked my ticket online a few weeks ago. I arrived today to find the wheel is closed. How can they take your money for an attraction that is no longer operating???

The wheel turns 3-4 times and you listen to the same facts all the time. By the end of the last turn I knew what they would say next. The views are really beautiful, but I think that the price should be lower (9 pounds).
