Thought I would take interstate guests to this attraction. The views were fantastic from the gondola. A little expensive as not much to do at either end other than the basic cafes:kiosk. Kids loved it. I would recommend and the price could be a little more family friendly.

Having riden the old Chair Lift in the mid 60’s, I was pleasantly delighted to see the stunning revamp of this Peninsula “institution”.
Not super cheap, but the ride was smooth the view were great...15 minutes each way.
Congratulations...job well done

A great attraction to visit gives a fantastic view over Port Phillip Bay. Went midweek on a sunny winters day. Not crowded very relaxed. Friendly staff to assist.

We went on a Sunday morning and the views were amazing. You couldn't see all the way to the city because it was hazy in the distance but ok a clear day you can. The queue was big but because we were a 3 they fast tracked up which was good. Only gripe is that you can't come straight back up and have to queue on the other end as well to come back up. Understandable when i5s busy but a bit annoying.

Used to be exciting exposed to the elements. Now it is an over HSE engineered cage.
ride. Staff are friendly and numerous, but the wait to get on is. longer than the ride. The view is good but if you liked the old chairlift forget if

Hello
Thank you for taking the time to review your visit with us.
The queues were a bit long this weekend, as they are everywhere over long weekends on the Mornington Peninsula.Usually the wait is quite short especially this time of year.
The Eagle is very different from the old chairlift - after the way the chairlift ended its days I'm sure you can understand our high focus on safety.
Also, when the Eagle was being designed, our owners and Parks Vic worked together to make it a highly accessible attraction that everyone, no matter what their level of mobility, can enjoy. So while you can no longer swing your legs, you can enjoy the ride all year round and feel 100% safe and for most of the year the windows are off the gondolas so you can still feel the sea breeze in your hair.
Kind regards
The Eagle Team
