  • The observation deck offers a really good view of Surfer's Paradise. However, not sure if it is worth the ticket price if bought onsite though. Thankfully, we bought 7 Days unlimited admission pass to...  more »
  • I have visited three times this year with visitors from overseas. Don't know whether I'm just unlucky but every time I have gone there, it has been closed for private function. Waste of money joining ...  more »
  • Views !!!! Yep and you can get a feed too. I would have given it a higher rating but the price could be better considering you may spend money at the food section As well, should be a little cheaper  more »

  • The best views & interesting information that explain facts of height, distance & prominent places 🤔. The lift is a bonus to watch the roof going up. We also climbed the spiral at the top & holy hell that was a treat. The wind howling & the terrible feeling when you look down & your heart misses many beats 😁. Loves it, been a few times before & it still takes my breath away 😎😍
  • Stunning 360 view. Staffs are friendly and very helpful esp. Mr. Clown he turns balloons to whatever the kids want by his magical hands like spiderman, funny hat, flowers, pony,...
  • You get a 360 degree view from tower, the view of the gold coast beaches, the ocean and the city is just mesmorizing. There was even live music to add to the ambience. You can get food and drinks at a small cafe at the deck. There is a second floor that was closed off for a private function.
  • Beautiful place to spend the day with the family or with your love ones. coffee shop there so you can enjoy the view.. cant wait to take my kids there
  • $25 each to go up in a lift, look at an 'average' view' and take photos. No, not worth it! Don't bother ... here's the view, save your money. The video of the history of the Gold Coast was interesting at least but not worth $25!
