    Yer, quite nice, better if you have a bit of an idea of what you're expecting to see I think.

    I thought it was boring and slow. I can appreciate why others would like it though, I'm just not extremely into views of London.

    I found it rather dull to be honest. Yes, the views were nice, but I guess living in London anyway, it didnt do much for me.

    I went on it once when it was quite new and once about 5 years ago.

    It is good the first time, kind of boring second time

    Meh, it took longer to get on the thing than it did to go around(which is saying something considering how slow the thing is) so it felt really overrated. Not to mention the fact that it costs a ridiculous amount for what is basically a glorified ferris wheel! I guess the views are nice but I never find city views to be particularly interesting. Mountain views, however, are a different story...

    Yes, a long time ago and it was good, if expensive (I think - I didn't pay)

    Biggest waste of money ever. I liked it when I was young but recently a friend came here from abroad and I thought it'd be nice to go on it again. She agreed with me that it was a waste, in terms of time and money. :dontknow:

    I thought it was really boring. It's not that interesting if you don't know what you're looking at and even if you do, I still didn't enjoy it. It takes forever for you to get high enough to have a really good view, and even when you're at the top all you realise is how much of London is scaffolding.
