There are two accessible gondolas on The Wheel of Brisbane, with a door opening width of 80cm, giving easy access to most size wheelchairs. When the accessible gondola came around, a portable ramp was placed down for me, and I was able to board without any difficulty. They asked me to position and park myself before take off as the gondola does move around a bit with movement. There wasn’t a massive amount of room to move, but there is enough to turn around once inside. All gondolas are fully enclosed and air-conditioned, with 360° views of the Brisbane River and Brisbane city.
We were so excited to be up and over the Brisbane South Bank on our first ferris wheel ride. The ride went for about 10 minutes, and we were able to get some fantastic photos of the South Bank from above.
When getting off The Wheel of Brisbane, they placed the portable ramp down again into position. I decided to reverse off as it’s easier for me to reverse off if the ramp is a little steep. The ramp access worked well, and I didn’t have any difficulty getting off The Wheel of Brisbane.
We really enjoyed The Wheel of Brisbane ride, and we were so happy to discover it is fully wheelchair accessible! To find out more, head over to The Wheel of Brisbane official website at Thewheelofbrisbane.com.au
