Visit the exciting Echo Wheel of Liver-cool for stunning panoramic views of the city's most famous landmarks including fascinating commentary to keep you in the loop.
At a frankly awe inspiring 196ft (that's 60m!) the Wheel of Liverpool offers 42 fully enclosed and air-conditioned capsules including a luxury VIP pod with a bonus glass floor, leather interior and DVD player plus the option of champagne! It's the ultimate sit down exploration of Liverpool! Sites to watch out for include the River Mersey, the Welsh mountains and World Heritage Site waterfront.
Ride time is approximately 10 to 12 minutes (for 3 revolutions) though you should obviously allow some time flexibility for queues and whatnot. There is full disabled access with ramps and extra wide capsule doors on 2 of the capsules to accommodate any special needs.
Young children generally feel plenty secure enough in the pod as it moves pretty slowly and feels nice and secure, so unless they've got a real problem with heights you should be good to slip this into the family itinerary, especially if you take a sweet treat to calm moments of unease!
There's a 1,600 space multi storey car park on Queen's Wharf with Virgin Express station and National Express Coaches both dropping nearby too. As of course you're close to the main fare of Liverpool so there are loads of ways to extend your day in all directions around this wheely good treat. Enjoy!
