A 12minute ride with a great view. Be sure to have a look for a Groupon (which seem to always been avaliable) to save yourself about 50% of the ticket cost.

Wow what an experience! You can see so much from the top it really does give you a birds eye view of Brisbane. The ride lasts awhile so you get plenty of opportunity to have a good look around. The cabin is air conditioned with...More
