Cape Wheel to be relocated and set to open in November

Posted by Ilhaam Hoosain on 22 June 2022

The well-loved Cape Wheel will be moved from the Victoria Wharf Shopping Centre to a location close to the Waterfront’s boardwalk. Currently the new location is under construction as well as maintenance on the Cape Wheel itself. By the end of November passengers will have a more spacious area when visiting the wheel according to Travel News.

The giant observation wheel gives a 360 degree panoramic view of Cape Town with views of Table Mountain, Robben Island, Cape Town City skyline, Paarl Mountains, and the Cape Town Stadium.

The new location will host new activities for visitors and a offer meals and drinks. Work is under way to create a landing plaza for the public transport to the wheel, that offers 30 fully enclosed air-conditioned cabins with two of them being wheelchair friendly.
