Riding British Airways i360 in Brighton - Win Tickets!
This past spring, Scott and I got to experience British Airways i360 in Brighton with his friends Damon and Sam. When the attraction had just unveiled, Scott and I were visiting but it was too hectic to try to coordinate a visit and ride. So this past trip we made it a point that we needed to ride it! Before embarking on our ride, we got to watch a film of British Airways i360 being built, and once in the pod it barely feels like you’re moving but was a spectacular feeling and view to see views at different heights and to make it to the top. Here are some quick facts about the ride:
It’s approximately a 25 minute flight from boarding and disembarking. You will need to arrive at least 20 minutes before your flight time to pass through security.
Also there’s no restrooms so be sure to go before you board the pod.
The tower is 162 metres tall and the passenger viewing pod climbs to a height of 450 feet (or 138 metres). British Airways i360 is 20 feet taller than its sibling, the London Eye, which rises to 132 metres.
The pod can comfortably accommodate 175 guests on each flight.
Visitors can admire 360-degree views across Brighton, the South Downs and, on the clearest days, all the way to Beachy Head (17 miles east of British Airways i360) and the Isle of Wight (49 miles west).
They even host fun events in the pod like holiday themed flights, yoga in the sky, sunset experiences and more!
Tickets can be purchased in person from the 1866 reconstructed toll booth ticket office located on the Kings Road promenade; or online beforehand which is highly recommended - see all ticket information here.
