Peeking Heights was originally installed at Thorpe Park in 2003, where it was named Eclipse. It proved to be very unpopular, and moved across to sister park Chessington World of Adventures in 2005. Thrill ride Samurai moved in the other direction, in a decision that angered fans of both parks.
The ride is essentially a classic Ferris Wheel, and offers views across the Mystic East area and beyond. Standing at some 79-feet-tall, it is the tallest ride at the park.
