Worth only once

I would recommend only going up there once maybe for a meal though as the price isn't worth just looking up there.

After many years of debating to go have a look, decided to make an occasion of it and have breakfast too. Prices are ridiculous! Poached eggs like hard rubber balls, fried eggs overdone, pancakes with caramelised banana had no banana., bacon dodgy. Toast burnt. Need I say more. Table next to us made a terrible mess but there was water... More

The views are amazing. The prices are not. Firstly you pay to get up and then the drinks are quite expensive. It can get very busy at times so take this into account. Still a nice place for a drinks.

Beautiful views of the Gold Coast! Great sport for tourists and locals. The food and drinks may be slightly over priced. I bought a Dreamworld yearly pass and it had unlimited passes to the sky deck as well which worked out cheaper for me.

This place has a massive opportunity missed, it wasn't busy and the service was very poor, wait staff were in lala land and the coffee was the worst I have had in a long time. Was a decent range of cakes/slices etc but nothing outstanding and was expensive. Recommend a cold drink from a can or bottle and wait until... More

Ok so it's pricey. Anywhere you pay $25 to get to is never going to be cheap. Prices are on a par with Sydney & Melbourne and the ocean skyline view is unlike any other city in Australia. One thing to watch for is the organised tour groups - they will squeeze a lot of people into the lift, which... More

Unbeatable view from the bar, 360 degree view, very fancy inside. make expensive drinks at night or expensive meals during the day. Cost a little bit to get in. But if your a first timer trying to impress someone this is the place to go.

The views themselves were ok but the staff on the door behaved like ommon thieves. We paid for breakfast and to go on the viewing deck. After already paying we were told the viewing deck was closed and we had to eat on a different floor. There was an offer to come back later in the day but we had... More
