Book thru Klook for cheaper tickets. Go around 6-7pm, no que / crowd on weekdays. Good views from all around Macau. Go dare yourself to stand on the glass bottom panel. Good for kids and elderly. Short ride but still enjoyable.

Took the ferris wheel and the view was amazing:) the waiting time for it was not long so everything was settle really quickly. However, the ride was quite short. All in all, it was worth it for the view:)

With my tickets for dancing water I had included the tickets for this. I thought it was going to be gimmicky but it s actually worth the trip! Great view and it s slow so plenty time to watch

If your parents enjoy walking, it is a short and enjoyable walk, much of it indoors so that you can enjoy climate control, people watching, and shopping. The way to the Golden Reel is well marked, and the uniformed staff in... More

It depends. You have to queue up for the ride. They usually put you with someone else to make 5 to 6 people in one cabin.
