  • It was amazing, 360 degree view and super fast lift. Actually you can use that for whole day you buy ticket for.  more »
  • We got free entry with a 3 day Dream World pass so went along just on sunset. It's a pretty impressive view from the 77th floor. We were a little hungry so ordered a pizza and a couple of drink and....  more »
  • Beautiful afternoon having a lazy lunch, fun sundae while playing Connect 4 and relaxing time on the couches! Lunch was a generous serving, fresh and delicious. We did the sunrise Tower climb that morning and enjoyed the complimentary Observation deck pass (included 20% off lunch). Highly recommend the tower climb, it was so much fun even with butterflies in my tummy! The views from the Observatory of the Pacific Ocean and the inland canals and islands are spectacular. We walked around and read our books on the couches. Great way to spend the morning or afternoon, well worth a visit and place to recharge while enjoying amazing vistas. PS. Look up at the ceiling of the elevator as you ride up to the 77th floor, very cool!!!!
  • Definitely worth a visit. Good to catch the views of the Gold Coast from 77 floors up. Has a restaurant and bar as well. Wouldn't go more than once or twice type of thing but it does have a breathtaking 360 degree view. They also have a climb tour which allows you to climb the steps that are above the observation deck and that lead up to the spire. The climb is an experience that needs to be had. It will suit people who are not too afraid to get out of their comfort zone. The height achieved is an addition 40 or so metres above the observation deck from memory. The observation deck good for tourists and kids.
