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.

you can actually skip on this ride as nothing really to see that you cannot see by foot. Though if you really want to see the area from above then it wont hurt to give it a try.

We have never experienced a tower like this. There are ferris wheel type "eyes" and high towers but this is like a cross between the 2. The cabin rises and revolves at the same time and at the top you have a panoramic vista revolving before your eyes. An absolute must to do at Melaka

I've visited this tower some time ago, so this is my second time visit. This time I visited this tower at night. The panorama scene is great. The 110 metre viewing tower was designed based on the legendary Taming Sari Keris, it is a fully revolving structure that lets you witness the sights of Malacca from 80 metres up. The... More
