The Cape Wheel of Excellence is a huge observation wheel in Cape Town, opened in 2010 just in time for the South Africa World Cup.
Standing at just over 164 feet tall, the giant observation wheel has 36 fully-enclosed pods (called gondolas), each with room for six adults. A complete revolution of the wheel takes about 2.5 minutes, but during one ride passengers get to go around four times. This gives everyone a chance to see the spectacular views over Cape Town multiple times.
The Cape Wheel of Excellence is on the Victoria & Albert Waterfront. Tickets are SAR100 for adults, SAR 60 for seniors, and SAR 50 for children ages 4-15 (children under four ride for free). The wheel is open Monday-Thursday from 12pm-7pm, Fridays from 11am-10pm, Saturdays from 10am-10pm, and Sundays from 10am-8pm. During the winter season, the wheel is closed on Mondays.
