So went on the star flyer ride next to the London Eye - awesome views of London and a different way of seeing the sights. Went at night. Would like to try in the day sometime. Would be better if a bit cheaper.

Wow, £16 for two people for at most 45 seconds in the air? I have travelled the world and am embarrassed as a Londoner that such an attraction exists to rip off visitors.... If you want to see London from above maybe book a Ryanair...More

The ride lasts less than ten minutes, other than chilly legs and a nice view it’s a little underwhelming. £8 is expected in London but isn’t great value for money in this case. Average.

It’s expensive compared to the ride time, it lasted 2 minutes maximum. Then they splited our group so they could equilibrate the ride even though there was space. And finally the rest of us had to wait 30m sitted inside to start the ride because...More

We’d never seen this on previous trips to London and my teenagers loved their ride on the StarFlyer with great views of the Thames and surrounds. Yes it’s expensive for a few minutes but great fun!

A ridiculously short ride for the money we paid (£8 each) and the staff attitude was terrible. Overall we felt totally ripped off. Avoid!

This place is a very tourist-y attraction on London's South Bank. We went on the Carousel- it was £2.50 each for about a 3/4 minute ride, which was alright. Nice views but nothing much really to offer.

We paid 8 pounds for around a 60 second ride you blink and its over really not worth the money and definitely do not recommend.

We paid £8 per person, and the ride lasted mere seconds... I think we counted a total of four revolutions up in the air. Don't waste your money... rider beware.

Southbank
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a
thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National
Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the
reasons that Southbank is such a collectively
cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly
activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized
river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo
Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and
