London Eye Queue

Eye See: Until recently the world’s biggest observation wheel (now Singapore’s Flyer at 165m) the Eye (135m) carries 3. 5 million people a year and is one of London’s top five attractions.
On a fine day the big wheel carries 800 passengers per revolution and they can Eye-Spy up to 40kms (25 miles) around, as far as Windsor Castle on the edge of the city. Each rotation takes 30 minutes and travels slow enough that passengers can board without the wheel stopping.
