Event: -
Riding Europe's tallest Ferris wheel, the London Eye, is an amazing experience at any time of day on any day of the year, but its operators like to jazz things up from time to time by offering something a little different.

And so, from 22nd October through to Halloween, the London Eye is inviting you along to the special Halloween Storytelling Experience. Kids will absolutely love it.

The Halloween Storytelling Experience involves a 30-minute ride inside a capsule on the giant wheel, while at the same time being treated to tales of Wilhelmina the Wicked Witch.

The price of a ticket will get you a ride on this magnificent wheel, priority boarding, a Halloween character host and an exciting storytelling session.

The special Halloween rides take place on each of the 10 days at 12:30, 13:30, 14:30 and 15:30. Organisers say the experience is suitable for children aged between approximately 4 and 11 and each must be accompanied by an adult over 18.

The London Eye was constructed in 1999 and originally formed part of the UK capital's millennium celebrations.

The then prime minister Tony Blair opened it on 31st December 1999 but it was immediately closed due to technical problems. In March 2000, once everything was fixed, it was ready to turn.

The giant Ferris wheel was only supposed to stay open for a year, to celebrate the new millennium. However, it proved such a hit with tourists and Londoners that it was decided it should be kept. Today it's the most popular paid tourist attraction in the whole of the UK.
