The wheel, operated by The Giant Wheel Company and hosted by the Cheltenham BID, promises a spin-tastic experience with panoramic views over the Regency rooftops of Cheltenham.

Operating daily from Friday, 9 February until Sunday, 3 March, the Observation Wheel will be in full swing, offering extended opening hours on weekends and throughout the half-term holiday.

To celebrate the return family entertainment will take place in Imperial Gardens. Young children can enjoy a ride on a teapot fairground ride at weekends and during half term week, TV characters, Bluey and Bingo, will make guest appearances on Saturday, 8 February (this popular free event sold out within hours of going live on social media) and on Saturday, 17 February Titan the Robot, the robo-star who's travelled the world and charmed audiences on Britain's Got Talent, will perform an electrifying free family show.  Catch Titan's legendary wit and moves that’ll leave you speechless 11:30-12pm, 1-1.30pm & 2.30-3pm.

Celebrate Valentine's week with a dazzling heart light installation in Imperial Gardens. Capture the perfect Instagram selfie with your sweetheart before embarking on a romantic ride on the wheel – because nothing says "I wheel-y love you" like a view from above!

This spectacular event follows the success of previous years. Heath Gunter, Chief Executive of Cheltenham BID, said - “We are excited to see the return of the Cheltenham Observation Wheel. The attraction not only gives residents and visitors the opportunity to see beautiful Cheltenham from a different perspective but also brings increased footfall to our businesses during a quieter period of the year. I look forward to seeing all the amazing photos on social media!”
