Wheel of Excellence at the VnA Waterfront

Often the biggest thing wrong with Cape Tonians is the fact that they don’t take enough time to be tourist in their own city- me included. So yesterday I decided to go to the VnA Waterfront and do something “touristy” by checking out the HiSense Wheel of Excellence.

The wheel, much like the U.K’s London Eye, spirals up 50m above the Mother City’s skyline giving you a special way to take in bird’s-eye views of Cape Town, Paarl, Table Mountain and Robben Island. The Wheel of Excellence has 36 fully-enclosed cabins, which can hold around 6 peeps each on the 15ish minute round trip. (which consists of 5ish revolutions)

On offer is a special VIP cabin that is tinted so you can pomp mid air while you sip on your complimentary Champagne.

It was pretty cool to take some time out and take in the beautiful city I live in- I’m definately going back to check it out at night- things are always better Bynight 😉

The deets are:

Adult  = R80.00 p.p.
Child = R40.00 p.p. (age between 4-12)

Family Package = R210 per gondola for 2 adults and 2 children

VIP Cabin = R1000 which includes +- ½ and hour on the Wheel and a glass of champagne and is for 2 adults and 3 children or 4 adults max. (which consists of 8 revolutions)

Specials for school groups are R250 per gondola and 8 children max

For all bookings for schools, Corporate clients, etc. please email: manager@capewheel.co.za

Time: Sun – Thur (10h00 – 23h00) & Fri – Sat (10h00 – 00h00)

Im a guy with a very particular view of life... im not quite sure what that view is just yet, but when I find out I'll be sure to let you know...


    1. I’ve got to agree with you… This is not Bill and Ted… The Wheel is not Excellent. We dont want to party on. Ok, those things may all be lies. Still… its a lame name.

    1. Why would someone pay me to go on the Wheel of Excellence and then make jokes about its silly name? No man, I just decided to go and check it out- shell out some of the cash I’ve earned from collecting old newspapers and magazines and having them weighed out.
