London Eye: Skip the Line Tickets
Reviewed by: Thomas C, August 2014
I was in London in 2005 and the line was so long that I could not go in the Eye. 9 years later and skipping the line it was well worth the wait. The wait was maybe 5 minutes on line until we boarded our Eye pod.
The views were absolutely amazing, got to see everything from the top looking down, planned out our map of other sights to see.

The London Eye is a "must do" activity in London. We purchased tickets for a Saturday and the line up for non-Fast Pass patrons was sooooo long (probably over a two hour wait). From start to finish I think we only had to wait for 20 minutes which included getting the actual tickets and getting onto the London Eye! The views from the top of the London Eye are amazing and worth every penny spent!

This was just straight up fun. You get into this clear plastic pod (that's amazingly temperature controlled unlike most of everything else in London) and get to go high up in the air for fabulous views. It's not scary (I fear heights) and there's much fun to be had.
Just be prepared for the fact that there will be a bunch of strangers in there with you (unless you're with a large group) who will all be trying to take pictures of the same things you are. It can be a bit crowded, but totally worth it.
Also, I chose the option to pay more to skip the line. It didn't the skip the line completely, I still had to stand in line with everyone else who chose to skip the line, but it did make it shorter. So if you're going on a heavy traffic day (see weekends or summer) it is recommended.

Great experience. It was super easy to get our tickets and in less than 5 minutes we were on the ride - with hundreds behind us still waiting in line! Well worth every penny!

Loved this event. We went during high tourist season so skip the line tickets were a must.The views from the pods were magnificent. You will get some great photo opportunities.

I went there when the queue was not quite long. But if crowded, skip the line might be the best idea. Anyway it's saved my time.

Great fun! Must purchase the Skip the Line tickets to enjoy the Eye! The lines are huge and this ticket is worth the extra money certainly!
