We went to London and went up the London Eye. Just like Phineas and Ferb. The kids mentioned this to me repeatedly, all the while looking around expectantly for a giant waterslide to appear. I suspect most of their expectations for London, and England as a whole, have been established by Phineas and Ferb.
It’s pretty close, really.
The Eye is very very big.
Entry to the pods is a bit hairy if you have any kind of motion sickness … you get to dash on while the pod is moving.
It’s very very high.
There’s a “4D Experience” you can see before you get on the Eye. Although husband was not impressed by what is essentially a long commercial for the ride you have already bought a ticket to enter, the kids and I thought it was great. There were bubbles, snowflakes, fog, rain, fireworks, dragons, dancing ladies, and lots of kablammo kapow. I left thinking that from now on, all business power point presentations should be done in the style of the London Eye 4D Experience.
If I had a stupidly huge amount of money to waste, I would totally go back and take one of the speciality trips. Champagne Afternoon Tea at over 400 feet for 20, anyone? Only 1300 pounds.
