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.

The overall experience with the City Pass was amazing. You just need to do a lot of activities to get the value of the purchase. One note: If you are doing the Vredenheim Big Cat Park - do not put in the adress in the Brochure. We gave the adress to our Uber driver and ended up at a gas station 5km away from the park. Put in Vredenheim Big Cat Park directly.

Excellent value for money! Planning your time will lead to successful use of the voucher. The red bus hop on hop off is ideal for exploring Cape Town. Recommend premium ticket. We went on a helicopter ride!

Great ticket lots included although not all are central Cape Town, we had other trips booked which enabled us to get the most use out of it. The premium ticket was well worth it too we did the Shark Diving

It was the best descision we made. We saw and experianced Capetown at its fullest!

Im afraid of height but the motion was slow and steady plus the beautiful view.
