About The London Eye:

The London Eye is 135 meters high which makes it the world's tallest observation wheel. It has 32 capsules and carries around 10,000 visitors every day. The London Eye has become the most popular paid for UK visitor attraction, visited by over 3.5 million people a year. While traveling in complete safety you can see up to 40 kilometers away in all directions from each capsule.

In 2009, a 4D Film Experience was added as a free extra to enjoy before your ride on the Eye. The 4D effects are superb and this short film has the only 3D aerial footage of London.
