The whole area around Olympic park is so handsome. If you like shopping malls there is a gigantic one with lots of shops in all classes. The view from the top of Orbit is fantastic. The ride itself is very wonderful and worth the money. A little complicated that you can put all belongings in a cupboard, then take the elevator to floor 1 where the chuck cake starts from, then you pick your belongings again and go up to floor 2 and the view. We happened to go all the way up first because it was a bit poorly informed and then had to go down again and 'start over'. There were not many people at all and no queues when we were there lucky. so it went well, it would have been worse if there was full. We walked down the stairs to the outside and it was also an experience. Nothing for the scared.

Great ride but disappointed in the video

Enjoyed the ride but not so much the video I paid for. Staff advised me to keep my head up off the slide but didn’t warn me that unless I made an effort to ride in sitting up position that only my chin would be captured on the video. On plus side, there is a small senior discount if you are 60 and above

Amazing mini Adverture

Took my son here and we really enjoyed it. First we saw th views of London and surrounding wonderful. Then we went down the slide, my son went first strapped to him was a camera to capture his experience. Me last no pony for a camera as my eyes would be closed for the whole duration. I would definitely go again in a heartbeat.
