Information

The 60 metre tall Wheel of Liverpool was opened in 2010 by Great City Attractions at a cost of £6 million. The transportable observation wheel has 42 enclosed, eight-passenger gondolas and was initially only intended to remain in its waterfront location for 12 months. Following the liquidation of Great City Attractions in 2012, the wheel was purchased by Dubai-based Freij Entertainment International.

    • It is worth a go – as the capsules are enclosed there is not too great a sense of exposure at the height; and the views are great… stay tuned for some of those coming up next…

  1. Interesting that it was bought be a UAE company. They really do add something to the cityscape, don’t you think? Seattle put one in too, a few years back, right on the waterfront, and it totally changed the aesthetics of that view, for the better, I think.
