Worth it for the views

Great ride with a great view of the city. I'm a kid at heart when it comes to Ferris Wheels, so even at 6Euros a person, this was a must do for me!

Great for all ages. From young ones to grannies, worth the money and several revolutions too. This was very pleasant as the weather was very warm

Generally surprisingly empty during sunset on a Saturday evenings in July. Great views. 6€ per adult gets you five rotations and when it's empty they even stop you at the top for an extra minute or two to take photos. A bit expensive, but a great way to see all the views- the palace, river, bridge.

Paid 6E for my wife and I and 4E for our nine year old who was begging to ride on it. Not much after 9pm in Avignon so why not. The ride was a good 7 minutes or so. It's a faster wheel and not one that crawls and we rotated for a long time.

We stopped by on a whim thinking we would have a go round on the ferris wheel. We were stopped by the 6 euros price. Seemed a little steep so we didn't go. I'm sure there are some nice views looking down on the town from up on top, but you can get that from the walls of the Palais,... More

Many cities in France have now added these Ferris wheels in town squares as a way to make the area family-friendly. This one is a nice addition to the square and provides a break for parents after a day of walking around this historic city.

Looked great for children. Interesting to just sit and watch in the square. Lots of big people were riding.

What a delight to see, the children had great fun and it was good to hear the laughter as one sat in one of the restaurants near by!

Charming to see a beautiful merry-go-round (it's not a ferris wheel!) in town -- even if drunk middle-aged men do tend to hog it from time to time.
