Big Wheel open for business

The big wheel has been built over the last few days and opened to the public today for the Bank Holiday weekend. It costs £6 per adult, £20 for a family of 4.

I haven’t yet tried it out but I think it will probably be views OF the wheel rather than views FROM the wheel that people will remember the most because it is visible from almost everywhere. The size & scale is incredible compared to everything around it so it is like it has been photo-shopped into every view. From every route in, whether you are calling at the supermarket, on the beach, on the sea wall, on the Warren, having a drink, whatever; this is now dominates your view.

Will be interesting to see whether it’s a white elephant or a money maker. as the season goes on.
