The London Eye, which opened in 2000, is one of the UK’s most popular visitor attractions, visited by over 3.5 million people a year. Fly the Eye and see sites across London and beyond – in fact you can see up to 40 kilometres in all directions!!
The Robot says:
- Did you know that the London Eye can carry 800 passengers per revolution – equivalent to 11 London red doubled-decker buses
- Each of the 32 capsules weighs 10 tonnes. To put that figure into perspective, it’s the same weight as 1,052,631 pound coins!
