The Eureka Tower is 91 storeys tall. The observation deck on the 88th storey features an extreme experience for the thrill seekers. The Edge is a glass cube which projects 3 meters out from the building while the visitors are inside. The glass becomes clear when it is fully projected out. The experience is certainly not for the faint-hearted as you are suspended 300 meters above the ground.

Are you game enough to try The Edge, a one of a kind thrill experience in Melbourne?
I've done the Edge experience several times with media groups and with conference groups. It's something you can do once and tick it off your 'to do' list. It's not cheap and the preparation (getting up there, waiting in the queue and all the build up going up the elevator so fast and having your ears pop, etc) is WAY more exciting than the actual experience which lasts roughly 5 minutes. The build up is designed to give you more of a thrill. I recommend going up to the top and enjoying the gorgeous birds eye view and saving a bit of cash. If you're really keen to try it, give it a go for sure, but it's def not anything I would pay to do twice.
I would like to try the Edge. My sister tried it when she came here to visit Melbourne. I have walked on glass on top of CN tower in Toronto and I was a bit nervous. I am thinking that the Edge will be a similar experience magnified a few 100 times.
