See the Sights Then Hit the Ice With Melbourne Star's Skate & Fly Offer
Offering two great experiences for one great price, Melbourne Star's Skate & Fly package gives adults and children a chance to double their school holiday fun with a sky-high flight on the Southern Hemisphere's only giant observation wheel before pulling on their skates to hit the ice at Australia's premiere ice-skating destination, the O'Brien Group Arena.
Enjoy crystal clear viewing through the cold winter air as you glide through the sky in a climate-controlled panoramic cabin, which offers passengers stunning 360-degree views of Melbourne and beyond, while audio commentary reveals stories about the world below.
Whether it's the bays and ports sparkling in the sun during daytime flights or the twinkling lights on the towers, boats and bridges after the sun sets, the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel is the perfect place to enjoy a bird's-eye view of Australia's most liveable city.
After dark, the wheel lights up with a dazzling multi-coloured LED light display in an array of colours.
Give the kids a truly memorable experience by picking up Melbie the Bear, a snuggly toy named after the Melbourne Star, in the retail area after your flight.
Throughout the holidays, the Skate & Fly package will offer one flight on the Melbourne Star and one ice-skating session at O'Brien Group Arena for the cool price of $36 for children aged six to 14 or $50.40 for adults. Concession tickets are $42.40.
The offer is available from Saturday July 1 to Sunday July 16, 2017.
