Visit Melbourne Skydeck on another level with it’s new virtual reality and augmented reality attractions plus great views from the highest viewing platform.
Melbourne Skydeck (formerly Eureka Skydeck) relaunched
Melbourne’s Eureka Skydeck has reopened after a multi-million-dollar redevelopment, with a new name – the Melbourne Skydeck. The iconic attraction in the city centre now has the largest virtual reality theatre of its kind in the world, and the first of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. The Melbourne Skydeck Voyager Theatre has 24 Positron chairs showing a bespoke film that takes guests through 16 iconic Melbourne and Victorian experiences. The film features stunning scenery shot in high definition, complemented by sounds, scent and movement and accompanied by a score by local music legends Felix Riebl and Ollie McGill of Cat Empire. Participants will ride Luna Park’s historic wooden rollercoaster, smell freshly roasted coffee as they explore Melbourne’s laneways, enjoy the action of the Australian Open from a courtside seat at Rod Laver Arena and feel crisp ocean air on their face as they swoop over the Great Ocean Road.
For an even closer look at the city, there is also an augmented reality 1:1100 3D scale model of Melbourne showcasing eight periods of its development, from pre-settlement through to the future. The model comes alive via a new Melbourne Skydeck app, which also includes a virtual treasure hunt of 31 hidden markers. Guests will be able to view the city from its highest observation deck, test their nerve on the Edge, a world-first transparent cube suspended almost 300 metres above Melbourne’s streets, and walk THE PLANK, a virtual reality experience that ends with a thrilling virtual plunge and zipline ride. The new experiences are an additional cost and can be added when purchasing tickets.
