Only get one circuit, not allowed to take your bag on which seems silly for tourists who normally have a backpack. Outside windows a bit dirty for photos. Forced to have photo taken and expected to purchase at end. View was good but very expensiveMore

$70+ for two adults is pretty steep for 30 minutes of “entertainment”. The wheel is pretty cool and amazing the way it was made but most of the sights of Melbourne you can’t even see from it. I wouldn’t bother going on it again.More
