Cape Town: The Cape Wheel Ticket

1. Cape Town: The Cape Wheel Ticket

Enjoy a spectacular 360-degree panoramic views of the Mother City from the iconic and vibrant V&A Waterfront on the Cape Wheel. With 30 fully enclosed, air conditioned cabins which gently rise 40 metres above the ground in safety and comfort, it’s fun for the whole family, all year long. From a vantage point high in the sky, gorgeous views of Table Mountain, Robben Island, the Cape Town city skyline, and local mountains are unveiled. The breath-taking display is enjoyed for four revolutions a ride, lasting about 15 minutes. Two wheelchair-friendly cabins are available, making this an inviting experience for everyone. The Wheel of Excellence, now also known as the Cape Wheel, was designed by Ronald Bussink, and was constructed in Germany in 2007. The wheel, which stands 50 metres high and takes nearly a week to assemble, has travelled around the world, visiting Belgium twice, Germany twice, and Sweden from 2009-2010. It first visited Cape Town in 2010 where it was initially meant to remain for only a six-month period during the FIFA World Cup. But since then it has found a permanent home at the V&A Waterfront, the oldest working harbor in Cape Town.

I went a day before and thw ticket worked ao that was great. The wheel does a few rounds and it moves fast so you get to take pictures from different angles.

It was a great experience. To enjoy it with a special someone or family and friends is a must when visiting Cape Town.

It’s an amazing experience especially cause I’m afraid of heights but I loved every minute of the ride

Im afraid of height but the motion was slow and steady plus the beautiful view.

I really enjoyed the ride it was nice and the view was amazing
