Park History
Originally operated in Birmingham, England as the Birmingham Eye. The organisation which owned and operated the attraction was purchased by an Australian company who set about dismantling the portable structure to bring it to Australia. It is being leased by Sea World at present. It is unknown whether there are plans to make it a permanent attraction or replace it with a similar attraction.

Found on the land formerly occupied by the Thrillseeker roller coaster. This land was originally earmarked for the construction of 'Seal Rocks', an attraction which is yet to come to fruition.

Special Info
At this stage this attraction is a temporary addition to Sea World.

Each gondola is airconditioned and features an audio soundtrack about the surroundings. They are built by Swiss firm CWA Constructions, who also designed and manufactured the Sea World Monorail's trains.

A single 'VIP' gondola is available for rent that gives riders the chance to ride in style with a plasma screen, DVD player and optional champagne.

»It's Ok
24 Dec 2006 . First of all the ride doesn't last 15 minutes it lasts about 7, but the experience was actually quite good. You can actually see the Tower of Terror at Dreamworld! it is an enjoyable attraction but I'm more of a fan of thrill rides, that's why I'm giving it 3.
