The wheel that didn't take off
Jul 2021
Having experienced the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel, I was sorry to hear that the Wheel was going into liquidation. I must say the small number of guests who took a ride on the wheel probably enjoyed the experience, as I did. Unfortunately, the wheel just didn't catch on. Melbourne people are fickle, sometimes they just dislike a structure. As it turns out, the wheel will cease operations soon. Will some new enterprise revive the wheel? Who knows.

AWESOME
Loved every minute of it. Staff are very friendly and helpful. We took our children aged 5 & 6 and they loved it too. The views are amazing. The gift shop is huge with lots of choices. My husband loved being able to have a beer during the ride. The offer of a second ride for $5 is fantastic. Unfortunately our children were hungry so we didn’t take up the offer. Would go again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend.

Great if it was built somewhere else!
I cannot fault the cabins and staff etc - all great and reminded me of the London Eye except without the queues. The whole of the way round though, you are constantly asking yourself why on earth was it built here, and what exactly are we supposed to be looking at? Your main view is railway tracks, industrial waste ground and the bridge with the freeway! In the distance in one direction you can see the bay and the tops of some of the CBD buildings in the distance in the other . I kept thinking as we get higher maybe we can see more things, but no. When you think of the fabulous views you could have of the city at that height it’s a strange view to present to tourists. I suspect night time would be better as at least you’d have lights to look at. So this would be great if it was built somewhere else with an actual view of the city!!

Hello Claire, thank you for your review. Our staff will be pleased to know you appreciated their quality service. Melbourne Star is proud to be located in Melbourne's waterfront precinct which offers not only a view of the city skyline, but showcasing Melbourne's ever changing industrial dexterity as well. At night the view completely changes. You can see the sparkling city skyline and suburban lights twinkling in the distance. We're sorry to hear that we didn't quite meet your expectations this time around, but we still hope to see you again! Kindest Regards, Melbourne Star Team

Good way to start a trip to Melbourne
May 2021
Lovely location with plenty of food/drink and entertainment options before/after the wheel experience. Very friendly and efficient staff. The cabin was clean with good temperature. Commentary was funny and informative, appropriate for children. The magic photos did not turn out great- the edits were a bit cringe-worthy. The wheel is a good way to start a trip to Melbourne as it Is informative and may give you ideas for places to visit.

Interesting view of Melbourne.
Mar 2021
Went around 6pm on a Sunday. Signage to find the entry was a bit patchy - we just kept walking towards the big wheel. Went up and down 2 or 3 escalators before we finally found the actual entrance. It was very quiet so we got our own cabin but it does look well organized to handle heavier traffic. Great view of the city but the commentary could have been a bit more informative. Piece of advice ? You put the gift shop at the end - not the start. No one buys their snowglobe before they've been on the attraction !

Amazing, awesome experience to share with family and friends
Jan 2021 • Family
We went after 8:30pm which was perfect. No crowds only waited about 20-25mins to get on. Worth every penny. Great views of Melbourne city. I highly recommend this for anyone and kids also. Awesome experience. 10 per cabin during Covid 19. So had my whole family in there sharing the experience together. Nothing short of amazing!!!

A must for visitors when visiting Melbourne
Dec 2020
My three sons and l recently rode on the Melbourne Star.
We all bought the alcohol added ride where you are allowed a can of beer or a glass of wine whilst on the wheel.
One of my sons and myself are not good at heights, but the wheel rotated so slowly this fear was quickly overcome.
The ride is for one rotation and takes 30 minutes.
Wonderful views all over Melbourne are had.
