Newest Review: ... a 20% discount but also means you don't have to queue to buy tickets. A family of four ticket costs just over £50. There is still a queue... more

On my first visit to London I was made to go on the London eye because my anty had always wanted to go on it.
When we got their we went to buy tickets which meant standing in a long queue. We bought the tickets which were quite expensive and then joined the queue to get on.
Waiting to get on felt like ages as the queue felt like it went on for miles.
When we got in the capsule there wasn't enough seats for everyone so a lot of people were either really squashed or stood up. From then on was the longest most boring half an hour of my life. The wheel went around so slow it just as well have been stopped.
The view included people standing in front of us, grass, buildings and water. All of which I could have seen on the plane home.
Hours later (or so it felt) we were near the bottom. As the doors opened everyone pushed and shoved there way out the door whilst it was still moving.
When we finally got off we had to rush to the hotel as it took so long we missed out on food and barely got to Mamma Mia on time.
Won't be going on that again.
Summary: Dont bother putting yourself through it
