SkyWheel Helsinki reviews
Came here to kill some time and was pleasantly surprised. Nice views, especially in the sunny weather. Staff were friendly and nice to do. Recommend if you’ve got spare time. more »
Not the highest sky-wheel as well as not the cheapest one, latter is rather unfortunate. Otherwise nice short attraction - normal ride is 12 minutes and consists of 3 or 4 rounds, according to... more »
The round goes three times, so you can enjoy the view fully. The staff is friendly and you can get a student discount. Compared to the view-wheels in other cities it's smaller and less exciting but in Helsinki you get the view on the city center and I would consider it worth it.
Helsinki Skywheel offers 3 turns and a great view of central Helsinki. It has a sauna cabin and a VIP cabin so if you want to ride it in style you can spend a great time here 👍
