Goes round twice, £6 for an adult was worth it. Great views and interesting commentary although it didnt point out anything we could see or tell us where anything was that was being commented on

Typical large wheel and cheaper than some I have been on.Goes round twice very slowly with commentary on the history of the area if you choose that option from the 3 available.Fantastic views of Torquay and the bay.

Never been on this wheel before so thought we would give it ago. Good to see so many views from the top. Weather wasn't great - grey and dull but still enjoyed it.

Really enjoyed our ride in this. Felt totally safe, comfortable ride and a choice of commentaries as we went. We opted for the history version, interesting and informative.

First time on a big wheel, the views were very impressive. Well worth a visit. Also purchased a lovely group photo.

As expected, the Riviera Wheel offers great views across Torquay and the surrounding area and travels slowly enough to enable you to get some fantastic pictures and the optional onboard commentaries are interesting and informative. Not quite sure of the need to have your picture...More

Hi, unfortunately the wheel has been disassembled as it's the end of the season, but it's being reassembled in Plymouth for the winter season, but will be back next summer in Torbay I think
