Owned by British Airways.

Opened in 1999.

443 feet tall.

Each of 32 capsules can carry 25 people at a time.

It leans, hanging on cables instead of standing on solid feet.

It never stops turning; 
it is slow enough that people get on and off without stopping.

One revolution takes about 30 minutes.

Most popoular tourist attraction in the Kingdom.

“The Eye has done for London what the Eiffel Tower did for Paris.” 

Sir Richard Rogers

Almost 4 million people ride the Eye each year.
