Imagine how much you would have to pay to spend 3 hours on the London eye! ‘Trapped’ this is so funny. Three hours? The reports I saw said it was fixed after 90 minutes! Looking at the picture at the top….what a view for free. A ride broke down and the passengers had more than expected for their money, they had adequate safety supplies and nobody was hurt. My idea of living hell. This is why I don’t use lifts or the Tube. When things like this happen it makes me feel better about my insane ways when it comes to risk of entrapment! I think I would of had to of been wrestled to the ground as I tried to smash my way out and flee from the pod wearing the tinfoil as a parachute.
My very first thought, before babies or milk or anything like that, was what they would do when they need a restroom break. I hope the comfort pack included a portable urinal. Next time have in emergency kit and martini, few green olives, tea, and some cookies. And don’t forget the glasses too.
You never know with whom you will get trapped there.

Well was another wheel (Ferris wheel).
Several years ago, on one of our many U.K. visits, we went on the London Eye. It was a very warm day and the A/C was on. There might have been a total of 12-15 people in our pod. As we circled up toward the top, a horrible odor filled our nostrils. Someone had incredibly bad BO! We moved away from it and pushed our faces toward the vent blowing air and remained there until the ride ended. I hope no one had to endure a BO situation for 3 hours. Every pod has a comfort pack for emergencies which includes thermal foil blankets, water and first aid kits, which the company said people were able to use. I noticed this whilst sitting on the seats opposite it on the other side of the river. Unaware I said that those people on the wheel were certainly getting the most of the money they paid to get on it.
Would certainly get boring after a while. Oh look there’s big Ben. Turn around and then turn back. Oh look cue complaints from the people stuck at the bottom who didn’t get ‘their money’s worth’ compared to the ones stuck at the top. Here’s big Ben. If we got on it this would have happened hah stuff like this always happens to us. As I’m scared of heights no way would I go up in that? This is what we were saying when we were on it. Became a boring view from above? I don’t think so. People at least talked to each other. New friendship began. I still say if we were meant to go that high….we’d have sodden’ wings. Not a bad place to be trapped, I certainly wouldn’t mind. I’m scared of heights, have a real phobia, I would’ve had a meltdown!!! I hope nobody got hurt. But it’s not scary in the slightest. It just stopped turning not falling.
This is a very big Ferris wheel (London eye) in Europe and entertains more than 3.5 million tourist every year. Although there was a fault with one of the wheels, so they thought the best thing to do was stop the Ferris wheel until it could be repaired.
