            Did you know: Each rotation takes 30 minutes, which means that a capsules travels at 26cm per second, or 0.9km (0.6 miles) per hour. That's twice as fast as a tortoise sprinting. There are 32 capsules, each weighing ten tonnes. That's the same as 1,052,631 pound coins. (Don't you love comparisons?) Passengers in the London Eye's capsules can see up to 40 kilometers in all directions, from a safe and comfortable environment. That means, on a clear day, you can see Windsor Castle. The London Eye can carry 800 passengers per revolution. That's the equivalent to 11 London red double-decker buses. The London Eye is the most popular paid for UK visitor attraction and attracts an average of 10,000 people a day. That's 3.5 million people a year, which is the equivalent of 6,680 fully booked British Airways 747-400 jumbo jets. The circumference of the wheel is 424 meters (1,392 feet). It is were unravelled it would be 1.75 times longer than London's tallest occupied building (One Canada Square at Canary Wharf) which is 235m tall. There are 32 capsules, representing the 32 London boroughs. For superstitious reasons they are numbered up to 33 with 13 left out for 'good luck' (or for those with triskaidekaphobia). At 135 meters (443 feet), the London Eye was the world's tallest observation wheel when it was built in 2000. Its height is equivalent to 64 red telephone boxes piled on top of one another. In one year the London Eye will rotate 7668 times, or 2300 miles, as far as from London to Cairo in Egypt, home to the Great Pyramids. (Source About.com)
