About

Situated on the shoreline of Marine Lake next to and outside of the Southport Pleasureland park, the 35-metre tall wheel offers visitors unparalleled 360-degree long-ranging views from the highest accessible vantage-point in Southport.

The wheel boasts spectacular views and has 24 cars each with a capacity of 6 passengers including one fully wheelchair accessible car. Each flight on the wheel lasts approximately 10 minutes and provides riders with spectacular views across the town of Southport, over towards Liverpool, the Ribble Estuary, the hills of North Wales and the Lake District, Winter Hill and beyond.

Light refreshments are available for guests to enjoy while they wait to board their flight in the Alpine Village at the base of the wheel. Or choose to stay a while longer and have a bite to eat after enjoying the spectacular views.
