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 probably didn't make the most of my 3-day CityPass to make it really worth it. But that wasn't important, I wanted to feel independent and free in my options. And the pass absolutely did justice to that, so I would definitely recommend it if you want to see as much as possible in a relatively short amount of time. However, I also recommend thinking carefully in advance about what activities you will do during the day...

More information on the booking process for boats and cruises etc. what times to be at the ticket offices for cruises. Your call centre is super jacked and well informed..

all staff members were friendly nd of good assistance. the view of the cape wheel of breath taking.

Lt was all great, the welcoming and showing us exactly where to go, even after the ride.

Great experience with the kids and beautiful views
