Great experience

Took two of our grandchildren on the wheel. They absolutely loved it, we ended up going twice. The staff are very friendly and the whole experience was wonderful. Only downside was no toilet paper in any of the women's toilets.

Hello Sahaja, thank you for taking the time to review us. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your ride with us. Unfortunately we cannot predict the weather, however at Melbourne Star we do offer a wet weather guarantee if it does rain during your flight. It can be purchased for $2 at the end of your ride and allows you to come back and take another flight on a better day. We look forward to welcoming you again. Kind Regards, Melbourne Star Team

Won't be Disappointed

The whole experience was great, booking, ease of finding venue, the staff were also great! If you're afraid of heights, this isn't scary and will feel comfortable and safe, as it doesn't even feel like you're moving and you don't feel a high off the ground as to what you really are.
