You can view entire city far as 30km. Well experienced from this view - modern city/old Malay village/can view several good temples and church view. Red building view excellent bring along your camera - dislike for old people having any blood pressure then avoid this.

- Slightly overpriced attraction. - Offers an alternative view of Melacca; a quick panoramic view of the UNESCO heritage old city, the Melacca straits and the newer development of the city. - 7 minutes ride up with 360 degree rotation view. - For budget travellers - only if you have cash to spare then I would recommend this.

I wasn't expecting much as the tower didn't appear to be high enough. After seeing the view from the skybar at the Hatten hotel the previous night we decided to do this during the day and so glad we did. Although the experience is only about 7 minutes you get really good views of Malacca and beyond. Definitely worthwhile

If you're there around hari raya, prepare to be inundated by noisy locals with little consideration for your space or desire to see things, despite the fact that you pay more for just about every attraction

If you think you are going to be pulled up to the top and dropped like the amusement rides in genting highlands, you would be disappointed. This is a non-terror ride. It gently rotates 360 degrees...and very slowly bring you down to earth. Yes...kids love it. Try it on a non-hazy day.

It is just next to the hotel we stayed Hatten Hotel, walking distance, so i took my kids for this ride, twice. Yes, they love it so much that they requested for another ride. We went once in the day time to see the proper view and once at night to see the beautiful night lights from this historical town.

Paid RM36 for a family of 2 adults & 3 kids, which i thought was pretty reasonable. They have different rates for non-malaysians. If you're looking for a 'ride', then you'll definitely be disappoibted as it's just a vertical rise to about 100+ metres, 2-3 360 degree rotation at the top, then down you go again. But if you want... More

This overpriced Melacca attraction got nothing special. It's just 7 minutes ride up with 360 degree rotation view. However, if you really wish to have a view from different perspective, you could get a quick panoramic view of the Melacca UNESCO heritage old city, the Melacca straits and the newer part of the city.

We were surprised to find this giant rotating elevator tower and just had to check it out. It was an interesting 7 minute ride up 100 meters and then two rotations to provide a 360 degree view of Melaka, putting everything about the city in perspective. Well worth the time.
