I went for a ride on the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel Private Cabin. The trip was very smooth and I had a good view of Melbourne. Unfortunately, in architectural terms Melbourne is a very boring city, there's not much to see, you spend a long time seeing nothing much. I've been on the London Wheel, which was good, because there a lots of well-known buildings to see.

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.

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.

Ease of booking, and an incredible experience! Definitely going to the Melbourne Star in warmer weather, later at night!!!

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!!

The star is a great way to see the city of Melbourne. However, I strongly recommend that people DO NOT buy tickets through VIATOR as it’s cheaper to buy directly from the STAR. I paid approximately $20 more through VIATOR. An absolute rip off.
