The booking was seamless and the staff on arrival were friendly and very helpful
Laura Cairns 1 month ago

The booking was seamless and the staff on arrival were friendly and very helpful. The trip around is sure worth the wait and trip into Melbourne. I can't wait to see it during sunset. The staff are amazingly friendly and their assistance was more than helpful.

I went on the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel and it was excellent
Sharni Gazzard 4 months ago

I went on the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel and it was excellent. It was at a discount rate of $10 and for that price, I give it a 10/10. You experience astounding 360 views. At the non-discounted price, I'm not sure if I'd give it as high a rating. For $10, I would definitely go on it again. I think it is better than the Eureka Sky Deck.

I chose to try out the Melbourne Star at sunset and it was beautiful
Heather Graziano 4 months ago

I chose to try out the Melbourne Star at sunset and it was beautiful! It was light enough to get a great view over the city, and then seeing the colours of the setting sun from so high up was incredible. The staff were all helpful and friendly and they made sure there weren't too many people in each car. $10 was a fantastic deal too!

A nice and relaxing attraction that offers a breathtaking panoramic view of Melbourne
Abraham Sim 4 months ago

A nice and relaxing attraction that offers a breathtaking panoramic view of Melbourne. Just a note for parents though: I came with a pram and was not allowed to bring it on. Also, you can only bring small bags (no backpacks; not even school backpacks). But you can bring as many bags as you like.

We went during the night
RAHUL BAMAL 5 months ago

We went during the night. It's a slow moving wheel.... you can see lights and buildings that are good but you can also miss it. Not a must do experience. There are some announcements happening from speakers and walls are transparent. Experience is better if there are lesser and quieter people in the capsule.

The Melbourne Star Observation Wheel is a place that one should not be missed
Sue 8 months ago

The Melbourne Star Observation Wheel is a place that one should not be missed! The view up there was magnificent. It's definitely worth the ride. Booking our tickets from Experience Oz was seamless and support was prompt. We only had to show the tickets on our mobile. It was a great experience and highly recommended.

We had a cabin to ourselves which was really nice
Mahesh 8 months ago

We had a cabin to ourselves which was really nice. A nice relaxing break in our evening with great views. A very smooth pace of the wheel. Good to hear information while the wheel was moving. They stop the wheel at certain points to observe the city view which was nice. All in all, a great experience. Highly recommend!

Views were fantastic
Leon Tomlinson 9 months ago

Views were fantastic. Got to see the whole of Melbourne at sunset, something very unique. We managed to go around again for an extra $2 each which was good. The trip takes about 30 minutes and it's definitely worth it. Would definitely do it again but during the night to get a unique view.
