    The London Eye does go up quite high but you will be safe the whole time. There is some risk of it breaking down but obviously if that does happen, there will be steps taken to make sure you are safe so it is very unlikely that you will fall off. It also goes round quite slowly so you won't need to worry about it going too fast and making you sick. You can get some beautiful views of London.

    @Morgan007 I grew up in London and went on the London Eye once. I was absolutely terrified haha. Hated every second of it as I'm very scared of heights.
    However, I did feel completely safe every second of it. You're in an enclosed space and the risk of it breaking down is so uncommon that it's not really something you have to worry about.
    Worst case scenario you can just sit there and close your eyes. You can't tell you're moving unless you look outside, and there's seats in the middle.

    I've been to the Eye many years ago and from what I remember I agree with Megan. It definitely feels safe and you cant even tell you're moving. Also the capsules are pretty big so any claustrophobia shouldn't be a problem (but I was small at the time so idk).
    I am also terrified of heights but I remember I was more scared when I looked at the Eye from below more than when I was inside it, the sheer size of it was making me dizzy I just couldn't look up haha.

    To answer your questions:
    1) Nope.
    2) Probably not because the trip is around 30 minutes, but that depends how long you're capable of screaming :lol:
    3) The worse that could happen is it just stops for a few minutes (making your journey longer so more worth it!) but I doubt that actually happening.

    I hope you have fun!

    Going to London sounds brilliant. I think the last time I went to London was last month I think. But I was just outside of London as I went to Harry Potter Studios. Last time I was in central London was when I was in sixth form and I will say London is amazing. I got to see the national theatre and I have been to Convent Gardens which is quite nice. It does get quite busy in Convent though but there are lots of street performers and artists which is so interesting to see. I will say make sure to bring plenty of money as I know I definitely was buying a lot of stuff when I was in London. (Also for some reason I find London can be very expensive especially with food; Harry Potter studios was like this with food).

    All in all London is a very lovely place full of culture which I love. I hope you enjoy your time in London :)

    I backed out of going on the London Eye, I got too scared and burst into tears :'( I feel so embarrassed :(

    Hi @Morgan007 you don't have to feel embarrassed about not going on the London Eye as that is totally understandable. Its okay to not have to do things because you feel anxious of doing them. I know the feeling myself with past experiences. Hope you are feeling okay, I'm always here if you want to chat.

    Sending hugs,

    Have u guys been on the London Eye? If so is it scary and can u describe it and I have 3 main questions....
    ●will I fall off?
    ●will I be screaming the whole time?
    ●has it ever broken down?

    Yep, I've been a couple times. You won't fall or scream, it's very safe and fun! I think it has broken down a couple of times over the last 20 years, but those are isolated incidents - I really wouldn't worry about them. It's a cool ride to go on, I'd definitely go if you're interested!
