The views are nice, and it's really cheap (now that AIA is sponsoring it), but the air conditioning in our car wasn't strong enough; I don't know if that's true for all of the cars or not. For HK$20 (about US$2.50), you get to go...More

Hi Jeremy, thanks for the feedback! We are currently undergoing some improvement works, including moving the ticket booth with the aim of bringing better experiences for all. Good to know that the upgrading work should not affect our operating hours for now.

Excellent value for money, 20 HK dollars for 3 revolutions. Went mid day and did not have to queue. Good views, especially from the top. Next time in HK will ride it at night as I think it will be very special.

Yes, it re-open recently. Previously price is at HK$ 100 and now runs with another company and price is at HK20 only. Online booking is recommended. Kindly visit hkow.hk link for ticket, amazing view and definitely worth it.
