About Wheel of Excellence

The first of its kind in South Africa, the Wheel of Excellence is an exclusive attraction for the V&A Waterfront during and after the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

The stunning situation offers visitors a bird’s-eye view of the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town Stadium, Robben Island, Table Mountain, the City Centre and Paarl mountains.

At 50m high, it is a fully illuminated giant observation wheel featuring 36 fully enclosed luxury cabins that will treat visitors to a unique sightseeing opportunity, glass of bubbly in hand! The comfy cabins feature glass floors, air conditioning and LED lighting.

This type and size of wheel is a first for Cape Town and South Africa and will be fully operational for an extended period post-World Cup. This particular wheel came directly from the Champs Elysees in Paris where it was a major attraction over the peak Christmas and New Year period.

Ticket prices to the Wheel of Excellence cost R80 per person and R50 per child aged 4 to12. Tickets can be purchased at the Wheel of Excellence site or at the V&A Waterfront Information Centre.
